Data acquisition, visualization, processing and analysis are brought together in a new integrated and user-friendly software platform for laboratories utilizing mass spectrometry (MS).
The redesigned Thermo Scientific Xcalibur 4.0 software platform is a complete console bringing together software for acquisition and analysis of MS data into one intuitive platform. All Thermo Scientific software will now have a convenient and streamlined launch platform with the ability to organize applications into groups that align with laboratory workflows. The package also provides links to the Thermo Scientific Xcalibur Applications Store where analysts can learn about the latest software applications, access software updates and try new applications.
The Xcalibur 4.0 software will be exhibited for the first time at the 63rd Annual American Society for Mass Spectrometry Conference, Booth 140, and at the Landmark Suite at the Renaissance Hotel in St. Louis.
