Shimadzu Releases QuantAnalyticsTM Open Access LCMS Software Package for Clinical Applications
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments introduces its Open Solution QuantAnalyticsTM software package, an LC/MS/MS data tool for the pain management and clinical markets. The software increases the speed and efficiency of data processing and review by allowing users to highlight and review results that are of specific importance to clinicians.
QuantAnalytics allows analysts to filter results by group or based on a clinician’s orders. This expedites data processing by eliminating the need to sift through analytes of no interest. In addition to making it easier to see if a result is positive or negative, the software can automatically flag data that is outside acceptable criteria, which allows the analyst to accept, reject, or rerun a sample.
QuantAnalytics enables review of a patient’s results immediately after data acquisition. The ability to review data mid-batch allows for a fast, streamlined, and efficient data processing workflow. The software also allows for bi-directional connectivity between it and a Laboratory Information System, which reduces human error in data input.
The software’s intuitive graphical interface simplifies analysis, allowing users to compare internal standards and targets in the same window, on the same screen. Tabular display of quantitative results enables quick sorting and searching of specified data. Analysts can highlight various information, including concentrations, reference ion ratios, sample status, comments for each analyte marked for rerun, and calculated percent difference between a target’s set and observed retention time, for easy review.
