The proprietary MasterLab software solution is based on an innovative platform for acquiring and processing mass spectral data. The software ensures high level performance and maximized productivity, while delivering the flexibility and robustness required in laboratories with high daily sample throughput.
Autotune. The MasterLab allows the system to automatically tune the performance checks; manual testing is also available. In the autotuning mode the various instrument control parameters are automatically adjusted as specified in the Autotuning Conditions. Furthermore, tuning conditions can be customized and saved to fit specific analytical requirements. The tuning criteria are saved in a tuning file, along with the obtained results.
Data Acquisition. Data acquisition initiates after the fast and easy method set up. The chromatogram and the spectrum are displayed in real time, as well as the acquisition method.
Report. Analysis reports can be customized and stored as report files, which can be repeatedly used. Reports can also be automatically generated to improve the output of routine laboratories.
Data Export. Obtained data can be exported to several standard data formats, e.g. net.CDF and .txt files. The creation of .xls worksheets is also enabled. The convenient file export can be performed automatically or manually.
Processing. After the acquisition, the mass spectral data are processed, enabling the access to peak identification, integration, and calibration. Calibration curves and quantitative analysis of known and unknown components are calculated automatically.
In GC analyses co-elution are prone to occur when complex samples are analysed or when the analysis run times are reduced. The MasterLAB algorithms use automatic spectral deconvolution procedures to detect overlapped peaks. The unresolved mass spectra are deconvoluted, pure mass spectra are generated and then submitted as unknowns to mass spectral library search. The software supports several mass spectral libraries, such as the NIST mass spectral library. And Adams MS Library (Allured Publishing Corp.) among others. Improved effectiveness and confidence in the identification and screening of target and non target compounds is achieved.
