Classic, DIGE or Coverage version
There are three versions of Melanie available for purchase:
- Classic version – This version offers all the functionality you need for differential expression analysis of conventional 2-DE gels.
- DIGE version – This version includes all the features of the Classic version, plus specific functionality for differential expression analysis of DIGE gels. This lets you fully exploit the advantages offered by multiplexing, in particular the high statistical confidence and reliability resulting from the use of an internal standard.
- Coverage version – This version offers all the features you need to analyze HCP antibody coverage experiments. Both conventional 2D PAGE/Western Blot experiments and 2D-DIGE or 2D-DIBE experiments can be analyzed.
Classic, DIGE and Coverage versions of MelanieTM can be purchased as a perpetual license, including two years of free technical support and upgrades, or leased for 3-month periods.

Software upgrades and support
When purchasing a perpetual license, a two years maintenance subscription is included during which all technical support and software upgrades are free. Upon expiration of this period, you can renew your maintenance subscription for another two years. If your maintenance is still active, you can download the latest software version.
In case your maintenance subscription lapsed, you can purchase an upgrade to the latest version that will include a two years maintenance subscription. Discounts for such upgrades will depend on the version you are upgrading from. Therefore, when requesting a quote for an upgrade, please specify the latest version you have a license for.
