PREMIER Biosoft (Palo Alto, California) entered into a marketing and reselling agreement with AB SCIEX (Framingham, Massachusetts) to help advance lipidomics research.

AB SCIEX will co-market and resell PREMIER Biosoft's SimLipid, a comprehensive high throughput lipid identification software product, for use with AB SCIEX's range of mass spectrometers.

SimLipid is designed to analyze both low-resolution data and high-resolution data. For low-resolution data, SimLipid performs isotopic peak correction to remove isotope overlapping of lipid species. The software facilitates interpretation of MS and MS-MS spectra by annotating matched peaks with corresponding lipids and fatty acid chains. In addition, each structure is mined for associated class, reaction, pathway, and enzyme.
