New Automated Software Simplifies Mass Spectrometry Data Analysis

Sep 09 2013

AB Sciex have 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 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 analysis. 

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. 

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. 

The software features a user-friendly interface with coloured symbols for more efficient data review.  It also has functionality to enable the elimination of irrelevant peaks.  In addition, the speed of acquisition and use of MS/MS data that are made available through this unique and proprietary combination of AB Sciex software and hardware enable lab personnel to reduce false positives and false negatives that they may get from alternative approaches.
