Cerno Bioscience Extends MassWorks Software for Formula ID on High Resolution and Ion Trap Mass Spectrometers
Product News Oct 25, 2007
Cerno Bioscience announces the launch of MassWorks sCLIPS (Self Calibrated Lineshape Isotope Profile Search), the latest addition to the MassWorks mass spectrometry software suite.
Using Cerno's patented calibration techniques, users of High Mass Accuracy (HMA) instruments can now improve the results of formula identification and obtain higher quality, reproducible data through line-shape calibration. For the first time, sCLIPS now also enables ion trap users to obtain quality formula identification of unknown formula.
MassWorks was originally launched in 2006, and received the Editors' Choice Bronze Award at PITTCON 2006. MassWorks is a post acquisition software system using Cerno's patented MSIntegrity calibration technology to work directly with data from a wide range of mass spectrometers.
MassWorks sCLIPS enables users of HMA instruments including TOF, high resolution quadrupoles, Orbitrap, magnetic sector, and FTMS to enhance formula ID accuracy without the need to run calibration standards. Cerno's patented technology provides a calibrant-free method for improving accurate-mass-only formula searches, the company says.
MassWorks sCLIPS also has benefits for users of ion trap spectrometers. sCLIPS enables formula ID through high spectral accuracy when running ion traps in zoom and enhanced resolution modes by virtue of its patented line shape calibration method.
"Users of single and triple quadrupole instruments have already seen dramatic improvements when using MassWorks CLIPS, and with new MassWorks
sCLIPS Cerno can offer considerable benefits to scientists performing formula ID on High Mass Accuracy and ion trap mass spectrometers." Comments Dr. Yongdong Wang, president of Cerno Bioscience.
