Cerno Bioscience Announces Varian MS Instrument Support in its MassWorks™ MS Software
Product News Jan 29, 2007
Cerno Bioscience has announced the expansion of its vendor file reading support for its MassWorks™ software, with the addition of Varian MS Workstation mass spectrometry data files.
This addition can allow users of all Varian GC or LC/MS systems running MS Workstation to calibrate their data using Cerno’s MassWorks software.
According to the Company, the easy-to-use software package utilizes Cerno’s patented MSIntegrity™ calibration technology to improve results by up to 100X on unit mass resolution mass spectrometers such as single and triple quadrupole systems. This can allow users to obtain mass accuracies of up to 5ppm, enabling compound identification through elemental composition determination.
MassWorks can improve the quality of data from any mass spectrometer from unit mass resolution instruments through to FTMS systems.
MassWorks utilizes Cerno’s DirectRead™ technology to open and process the Varian MS Workstation data from the native Varian SMS and XMS data files.
MassWorks also supports other MS vendor files, including ABI/Sciex Analyst, Agilent Chemstation, Perkin Elmer TurboMass, Thermo Scientific Xcalibur and Waters Masslynx.
Dr. Yongdong Wang, president of Cerno Bioscience, comments, “We are extremely pleased with the vendor response to our MassWorks software and we will continue to add file support for our customers. Our intention is to make our accurate mass and lineshape calibration technologies easily accessible to any user, regardless of the instrument type or manufacturer.”
