MasterView™ Software improves ability to identify known and unknown
compounds in automated process
FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
AB SCIEX, a global leader in analytical technologies, today announced
the launch of MasterView™
Software, a new software application with built-in automation that
quickly turns enormous amounts of complex analytical data into
simplified, meaningful answers for safer food, cleaner environments and
more reliable forensic drug screening than alternative approaches.
Designed for both targeted and non-targeted analysis when using technology&index=2&md5=3a09ab6f7e2af969c8d26d696bad4981">AB
SCIEX TripleTOF® accurate mass technology, the new
MasterView Software automates data analysis and streamlines data review.
It simplifies the use of high-performance mass spectrometry technology,
which is one of the most powerful analytical tools commercially
available to the scientific community for biological and chemical
“MasterView Software takes the guesswork out of compound detection,
identification and data review,” said Rainer Blair, President of AB
SCIEX. “The speed, power and accuracy of high resolution mass
spectrometry technology can now be used for daily, routine testing in
food safety, environmental and forensic toxicology laboratories, with
minimal training needed for lab personnel who are unfamiliar with or
have never used mass spectrometry.”
Prior to the availability of MasterView Software, lab personnel had to
deal with the complexity of large amounts of data, the time-consuming
task of manual data review and often expend resources trying to find a
technologist highly familiar with mass spectrometry. This all has
contributed to slower adoption of accurate mass technology in the past.
However, with this new, intuitive software package from AB SCIEX, lab
personnel can now use accurate mass technology, such as the TripleTOF
5600+ System or TripleTOF 4600 System, to accelerate the process of
generating relevant information from complicated data sets, save time
with the flexible reporting functionality and have confidence in the
results ? all without needing to hire an expert in mass spectrometry.
MasterView Software extracts accurate mass-based information from
complex TripleTOF-generated data files to rapidly identify and quantify
targeted contaminants in food and environmental samples as well as drugs
of abuse in forensic toxicology samples with high confidence. It also
enables sample control comparison to identify non-targeted or unexpected
compounds using automated formula finding and ChemSpider searching.
