SameSpots uses pixel-level alignment to correct for the geometric distortions inherent in using 2D gels. Competing software relies on ‘warping’ algorithms to compensate for gel distortion. Published data (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/20077/) proves this older technology cannot deliver 100% spot matching and creates missing values in your data without investing significant resources to correct the results. Independent research reported that SameSpots reduces the number of missing values (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/18246/)
