Spectronaut® 19: Unleashing the Power of AI for Deep, Fast, and Scalable DIA Analysis

This latest release of Biognosys’ flagship software for DIA analysis comes with significant improvements in peptide and protein level identifications, increased depth of candidates' discovery rate, scalability for large-scale analysis and enterprise use, and extended support for novel workflows.

“While this is one of the feature richest releases we ever had, it’s the improvement in quantification that stands out in Spectronaut 19,” said Lukas Reiter, Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer of Biognosys. “We invested a lot in understanding quantification better, which has clearly paid off. In terms of technologies, improved AI models had a significant impact on this year’s release.”

Jun.-Prof. Dr. Florian Meier-Rosar from University Hospital Jena (UKJ), Faculty of Medicine, stated: “Spectronaut is a great fit for our DIA projects. Its directDIA workflow combines ease of use with reliable quantification which suits our needs when studying protein abundance and post-translational modifications at scale.”

Yansheng Liu, Ph.D., Associate Professor at Yale University School of Medicine, Department of Pharmacology, commented: “Spectronaut is our preferred DIA analysis software due to its high performance and user-friendly interface, which makes analyzing our complex and multiplex DIA datasets both easy and reliable.”

Biognosys’ Breakfast Seminar, “Spectronaut 19: Unlock your data’s true story” on Tuesday, June 4th is entirely dedicated to this release, featuring presentations by Prof. Josh Coon from University of Wisconsin-Madison, titled “Single-Shot DIA Proteome Analysis: The New Gold Standard for Quantitative Proteomics”, and Denys Oliinyk from Jena University Hospital, titled “Towards High-dimensional Phosphoproteomics with Data-independent Acquisition and µPhos”. In addition, the company will present 3 orals and 3 posters highlighting recent improvements in Spectronaut.

TrueDiscovery®: now enhanced with groundbreaking P2 Plasma Enrichment technology for unbiased, deep plasma proteomics

Biognosys is launching a novel, proprietary P2 Plasma Enrichment method for single-well, single particle-type based enrichment with market-leading performance and superior economics. The method offers excellent quantitation and higher throughput for large-cohort biomarker or drug discovery studies, and clinical, epidemiological, or population proteomics research. The P2 Plasma Enrichment workflow will be available as a CRO service via Biognosys’ TrueDiscovery® platform, or as an in-house method for high-performance mass spectrometry end-users via licensing.

The technical features and performance data will be presented on Wednesday, June 5th during the WP 084 poster session and on Monday, June 3rd during Biognosys’ Breakfast Seminar, “Accelerating Drug Discovery and Development with Biognosys’ Next-Generation Proteomics Services”. This seminar also features presentations by Eric Kuhn from Kymera Therapeutics on “Mass Spectrometry-Based Approaches to Targeted Protein Degradation Drug Discovery and Development” and Alan Shomo from Biogen on “Development of a Quantitative CSF LRRK2 Assay to Support Clinical Studies”.

TrueTarget®: introducing a high-throughput workflow for large-scale drug target deconvolution screening

A critical challenge in drug development is the high failure rate of candidate drugs in clinical trials. Identifying drug targets and potential off-targets efficiently is crucial. Biognosys' TrueTarget® platform, powered by limited proteolysis mass spectrometry (LiP-MS), is a powerful tool for unbiased drug target identification, that is available both as contract research service and licensing option. To facilitate its use for large-scale screening, Biognosys developed an innovative, LiP-MS-HT protocol for automated high-throughput drug target deconvolution that achieves improved target identification and reduced measurement time, with high reproducibility and quantitative precision. Biognosys will present the new LiP-MS-HT workflow during the ThOH Oral Session on Thursday, June 6th.

DigitalProteome™ and Proteoverse™: turning data into biological insights for biopharma research

Biognosys’ new data insights solution, DigitalProteome™, provides valuable insights into protein expression and significantly enhances in-vivo biomarker discovery and drug development studies. The database includes proteome profiles from 22 healthy tissues from humans, mice, and rats and is readily available as an off-the-shelf library. The key characteristics of the DigitalProteome™ database will be presented on Wednesday, June 5th during the WP 070 poster session. The resource is available for biopharma research via licensing.

To make the rich mass spectrometry data produced by Biognosys' research service platforms even more accessible and actionable, customers can access the novel Proteoverse™ platform for data visualization and exploration to swiftly extract valuable biological insights, identify key analytes from thousands of proteins, explore peptide-level structures, and examine their biological relevance. The tool will be presented on Thursday, June 6th during the ThP 119 poster session. The tool is initially available as a free-of-charge service alongside Biognosys' TrueDiscovery® research projects.

Visit for a complete overview of Biognosys’ presence at ASMS. Posters will be available for download by Friday, June 7.
