Improve productivity and specificity by acquiring information instead of data

  • AutoTune provides easy, automated optimization of quadrupole and TOF calibration and resolution as well as optimized detector settings so that you collect the highest quality information in every run
  • Dynamic background subtraction (DBS) minimizes collection of MS/MS on background ions to increase identification of low-level analytes in the presence of background noise
  • Multiple mass defect triggered IDA (Information Dependant Acquisition) improves efficiency and reduces the need for multiple injections to get comprehensive information. Mass defect can be applied for specific mass ranges, and multiple mass defects can be applied
  • Neutral Loss triggered IDA provides unique specificity by triggering MS/MS when two TOF MS scans (high and low energy) detect a specified mass difference. The result is higher efficiency IDA experiments requiring fewer runs
  • MS/MSALL is a powerful workflow enabled by the speed and sensitivity of the Triple TOF� 5600 System, where high quality MS/MS spectra are generated for all masses. A resolving Q1 is stepped across a mass range and high resolution, accurate mass MS/MS is obtained at every mass step. Combined with high resolution TOF MS data, this workflow enables the acquisition of MS and MS/MS on all analytes.
  • iTRAQ® Reagent Optimization automatically adjusts the collision energy settings specific for ™TRAQ reagent labeled samples, to ensure good ion signal is achieved for the reporter ions for high quality quantitative results
  • Auto batch calibration maintains mass accuracy during long runs by automatically calibrating the system
  • Methods Wizard enables easy creation of acquisition methods with templates for common workflows

PeakView™ Software is optimized for acquiring and processing accurate mass data for multiple samples. It saves you time during data review by enabling you to apply processing parameters across large sample sets. You can also view spectra from multipl samples simultaneously in a single window for quick and easy qualitative review and comparison

Formula Finder Software is an enhanced elemental formula calculator for small molecule analysis. It quickly calculates all possible elemental formula for detected masses using both accurate mass and isotope distribution. The software will use MS/MS data when available to confirm the identity of the most likely candidates, while applying ’Chemical logic’ to filter out unlikely candidates. Interactive recalibration tools based on found common background ions or experimentally determined fragment masses ensure highest accuracy mass reporting.
