MassWorks software improves mass accuracy by up to 100 times, even on conventional mass spectrometers of unit mass resolution. By combining novel calibration techniques with sound mathematical principles, the software provides significant improvements to all types of MS data, both high and low resolution. It also yields effective noise filtering, quantitation precision and accuracy, unbiased baseline correction, unambiguous and parameter-free peak picking, and automatic and unbiased MS spectral alignment. The software runs under Windows. . . .

For Analytical Systems

Gen5 microplate data collection and analysis software is designed for the requirements and preferences of microplate instrumentation users. It offers a clean, uncluttered interface with many options for access to the most common tasks. The data analysis capability is powerful and flexible, yet easily defined. Several versions of Gen5 are available, including Gen5 Secure, which has features for compliance with 21 CFR Part 11. Gen5 is the operating system for all BioTek automated detection systems.

Omnic V 7.3 allows chemists, analysts, and researchers to quickly and easily acquire, process, analyze, and manage Fourier transform infrared or Raman spectrometry data in a graphical environment. It is the common software platform used by all Nicolet FTIR and Raman laboratory spectrometers. The software provides an advanced level of integration between software, spectrometer, and sampling accessory. It includes a wide variety of tools that spectroscopists need to process and analyze their data, and it ensures data integrity by recording all processing operations in the spectral data file audit trail.
