Data Analysis

Acquire and Analyze Mass Spectrometry Information

MassLynx™ Software  is a fundamental platform that acquires, analyzes and manages mass spectrometry information.MassLynx controls any Waters mass spectrometry system, from sample and solvent management components to mass spectrometer and auxiliary detectors. MassLynx Software may acquire nominal mass, exact mass, MS/MS and exact mass MS/MS data. MassLynx Software features general purpose and specialized Application Managers that provide information for your specific MS analyses and data, such as:

  • OpenLynx™ for qualitative screening and identification
  • Targeted quantitative analysis
  • Mass-directed purification
  • Metabolite identification
  • Deconvolution of complex chromatograms
  • Metabonomics & metabolomics
  • Protein identification and protein characterization

Progenesis QI is the next generation LC-MS data analysis software that enables to Quantify and then Identify the small molecules, lipids, and proteins that are significantly changing in the samples. Progenesis QI is a software that rapidly, objectively, and reliably discovers the compounds of interest using multi-group experimental designs and with the capability to handle the large sample sets typical of today’s experiments. As well as conventional data-dependent analysis (DDA), Progenesis QI supports Waters MSE and HDMSE data independent analysis (DIA). Uniquely, the software also takes advantage of the additional dimension of resolution offered by ion-mobility separations to give improvements in the accuracy and precision of compound identification and quantification.D
