Introducing New Product Spotxel®

Press Release, Spotxel Updates

07 Jan 2014 - Introducing new product: Spotxel® Microarray Data Analysis Software.

SICASYS GmbH is excited to introduce our new product Spotxel® - the microarray data analysis software for antibody, protein, and DNA microarrays. You can use Spotxel® to:

  • analyze microarray images and quantify the array data,
  • automate the tedious task of array alignment and data quantification for a large number of images, and
  • discover features that influence your microarray study and the relationship between them.

From now on, we develop two related software products and provide support to their users:

  • PepSlide®: Software for designing and analyzing peptide arrays and compound arrays.
  • Spotxel®: Microarray data analysis software with focus on antibody, protein, and DNA microarrays.

The users will benefit from features commonly used in both products; improvements to Spotxel® will be made available to PepSlide® and vice versa. On the other hand, features specific to each platform, such as advanced analysis for peptide array applications by PepSlide®, will be further developed. Our goal is to have the software do as much low-level tasks as possible, so that you can save time, focus on your findings, and discover more from your study.

Spotxel® comes with flexible and attractive pricing models. You can choose to buy a time-unlimited software license or a term-license with a much smaller price. Spotxel® works natively on both Windows and Mac OS X platforms. The Beta version will be released in January 2014, and the stable version of Spotxel® 1.0 is scheduled to be available in February. Furthermore, we plan to support Spotxel® on mobile platforms in this year 2014.

Please find detailed information at the Spotxel® product website You can start requesting for the free trial version. We will send you the download information when the Beta version is released.
