Bruker Daltonics has announced two updated software
versions, ClinProTools 2.1 and flexImaging 2.0. When integrated, the packages allow
researchers to merge statistical analysis on Maldi-Tof profiling spectra with molecular
images of peptide and protein biomarker tissue distributions. The systems facilitate
biomarker discovery and validation from large sample cohorts, and the application
of the same statistical analysis methods to differentiate between areas on tissue
sections. The programs’ capabilities enable clinical research on typing of
tissue samples and subtyping of tumor types.
For use with supervised and unsupervised
approaches, ClinProTools 2.1 includes preanalytical effects, such as sample drawing,
storage and preparation. Data sets originating from one sample class can be tested
for unexpected variations before application in any comparisons with other sample
classes. A receiver operating curve plots the separating power of all individual
signals to discriminate between the sample classes.
