Trajan Scientific and Medical announces the completion to acquire specialized software business, HDExaminer, from California-based, Sierra Analytics, Inc.
HDExaminer is used in Hydrogen Deuterium Exchange Mass Spectrometry (HDX-MS), which is a powerful technique providing insight into protein dynamics. HDX-MS studies can be used to connect structure, behaviour, and function of a protein, between proteins and drugs, development of life-saving vaccines, as well as the cause and potential resolution of protein misfolding diseases.
Trajan has become a global leader in the automation of the HDX-MS technique and has also been the exclusive distributor of the HDExaminer since early 2018. HDExaminer enables the analysis of the protein structural information generated by the Mass Spectrometer.
Stephen Tomisich, Trajan CEO said “bringing ownership of HDExaminer into the Trajan family allows us to invest in the future development and enhancement of this powerful analytical platform. Together with our growing number of leading collaborators in the field of HDX-MS we expect to target several areas of the package to enable broader adoption of the technique along with enhancing the depth and value of protein structural information that can be revealed.”
