ChemAxon, BSSN Software Partner
News Jun 18, 2015
This partnership has led to the development of a Mass Spectrometry Add-On for ChemAxon’s Instant JChem™ which enables storing, searching, and displaying of mass spectrometry data in the context of chemically aware databases. The Mass Spectrometry Add-On leverages the capabilities of BSSN Software's Seahorse Scientific Workbench® technology and the ASTM AnIML analytical data standard to interface with instruments from all major vendors. Users can import structure and mass spectrometry data from many formats, including the NIST/EPA/NIH Mass Spectral Library, enabling fully integrated analytical data management.
With a new Mass Spectra Form Widget, users can perform spectrum similarity searches based on a spectrum query, as well as search for spectra by structure or other chemical query terms. Search results or data library browsing can display the spectra alongside chemical information in a display widget that can zoom, identify peaks, and display query and result spectra alongside each other.
Seahorse Scientific Workbench® is a vendor-neutral software suite for capturing, analyzing and sharing analytical and biological data, while Instant JChem™ is a desktop application designed for chemists to create, explore and share chemical and non-chemical data in local and remote databases.
Small imperfections in a wine glass or tiny creases in a contact lens can be tricky to make out, even in good light. In almost total darkness, images of such transparent features or objects are nearly impossible to decipher. But now, engineers at MIT have developed a technique that can reveal these “invisible” objects, in the dark.
