Cerno Bioscience Launches MassWorks™ CLIPS for Unprecedented Elemental Composition Determination
Product News Feb 26, 2007
Cerno Bioscience announces the unveiling of MassWorks™ CLIPS (Calibrated Lineshape Isotope Profile Search), a new way to attain fast and reliable elemental composition determination (ECD) from single or triple quadrupole mass spectrometers.
Using Cerno’s calibration techniques combined with this system, users of any single or triple quadrupole mass spectrometer will be able to attain unambiguous elemental composition ID.
During ECD, CLIPS relies on a newly developed and selective metric called Spectral Accuracy when evaluating different formulae of very similar exact masses.
This innovation will be demonstrated exclusively at PITTCON 2007 booth #4579, Chicago, Illinois, February 26 – March 1 2007.
In order to use the full isotope fingerprint to unambiguously identify an unknown compound formula, CLIPS utilizes the calibration of the award-winning MassWorks™.
“For the first time ever, MassWorks CLIPS provides mass spectrometrists with a definitive answer when conducting elemental composition determination”, says Dr. Yongdong Wang, president of Cerno Bioscience.
“In the past, single and triple quad mass spectrometers were generally not considered suitable for formula ID. MassWorks’ ability to calibrate these instruments to accurate mass and the CLIPS unique ability to calculate the Spectral Accuracy enables these low resolution instruments to discover the actual formula of the unidentified compound,” Wang continued.
