New Ludesi REDFIN 2D Gel Image Analysis Software Upgrade Enables Experiment Sharing and Collaboration Worldwide

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - May 13, 2008) - Ludesi Corporation, developer of the award-winning Ludesi Image Analysis Service for 2-dimensional electrophoresis gels, today announced version 2.0 of its REDFIN Image and Data Management software. The new version allows researchers to easily share their Ludesi analyzed experiments with colleagues around the world simply by clicking on a "share" button and entering the email address of the sharing recipient. Researchers sharing a project may grant "read-only" or "read/write" access to their experiments, and projects can be un-shared at any time. And since Ludesi's REDFIN software is free and downloadable, the sharing recipient doesn't even have to be a Ludesi customer to be able to use the software and participate in the experiment.

"As Alphalyse is a protein analysis service provider, we deal with clients with different needs and we always want to share the Ludesi analysis results with them, and among our internal staff involved in the project," said Dr. Ejvind Mortz, Chief Operating Officer, Alphalyse, Denmark. "We have been extremely satisfied with Ludesi because their service provides us with the most accurate image analysis results we've seen to date. Also very important, the service has a very fast turnaround time and eliminates a significant amount of time and manual labor we used to spend using analysis software."

"The Ludesi Image Analysis Service is the only solution that enables researchers to quickly and easily share their 2D gel image analysis experiments and project results with any number of colleagues around the world, and without any added cost," said Ola Forsstrom-Olsson, founder and CEO of Ludesi Corporation. "Many of our customers are leading global research organizations and pharmaceutical companies, and they specifically requested that we add this sharing capability of analyzed images and results in order to facilitate improved collaboration with scientists both internal and external to their organizations."
