Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today introduced 10 new or updated software packages to help customers harness the power of its new-generation liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) instruments and turn data into knowledge in a wide range of discovery and quantitation experiments.
The software packages made their debut at the ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics, being held in Minneapolis from June 9-13 at the Minneapolis Convention Center in booth 154.
New software introduced at ASMS includes:
Thermo Scientific FreeStyle 1.0, highly flexible data visualization software that enhances users’ ability to interrogate and display both low and high resolution MS data. It facilitates rapid method development by providing high-quality data and quick report writing capabilities. It integrates seamlessly with new method editor software for new-generation Thermo Scientific LC-MS instruments.
Thermo Scientific TraceFinder 3.1, an easy-to-use, workflow-driven application for routine quantitation and targeted GC-MS and LC-MS screening. Intelligent sequencing is designed to protect precious samples by checking instrument performance before making injections. TraceFinder 3.1 enhances productivity with new method development tools, simplified data acquisition protocol and comprehensive data review that features customized visualization and reports.
Lipid Search automates comprehensive analysis of lipids from raw mass spectra generated by a variety of instruments. It supports a number of acquisition modes, including precursor scanning, neutral loss scanning and product ion scanning. It helps identify lipids and determine relative quantitation in different sample groups.
Thermo Scientific Proteome Discoverer 1.4 is a full-featured data analysis platform for qualitative and quantitative proteomics research. It now includes multi-threaded SEQUEST® and library searching tools for fast data processing. Other tools, Percolator and Byonic™, help extract maximum information from MS/MS data.
Thermo Scientific SIEVE 2.1 automates differential analysis of proteins, peptides, and metabolites. Version 2.1 includes a new, advanced algorithm for small molecule peak detection designed to facilitate large-scale data reduction, reduce false positives and generate elemental composition information. It also displays pathway mapping for metabolomics applications.
ProSight 3.0 helps scientists perform top-down and bottom-up protein identification and characterization. New algorithms enhance performance for intact protein analysis.
Thermo Scientific Pinpoint 1.3 is a comprehensive, targeted proteomics quantitation platform supporting targeted discovery through routine quantitation. Automated workflows help streamline experiments, from method development and acquisition, through data verification and reporting.
Thermo Scientific LCQuan 2.9 is designed to help regulated laboratories harness the performance of new-generation Thermo Scientific Quantiva and Endura triple-stage quadrupole mass spectrometers within a 21 CFR Part 11 environment.
mzCloud is a novel mass spectral database that helps scientists identify unknowns, even when the spectra are not present in libraries. It features libraries of annotated high resolution, accurate mass spectral ion trees to facilitate identification of compounds, using a new-generation spectra correlation algorithm. It is designed to improve research results in fields such as metabolomics, toxicology, and environmental analysis.
The company also previewed Thermo Scientific Compound Discoverer 1.0, a new application designed to help users confidently detect and identify small molecule compounds in a wide range of experiments. User-assembled workflows allow for flexibility and workflow-aligned data processing.
