CheMS Opening ScreenThe CheMS user interface simplifies the mass spectrometry experience and makes it more accessible in chemistry and biochemistry laboratories.  The user interface allows users to quickly select the workflow and type of compound they wish to analyze in just a few clicks of the mouse and the software automatically optimizes the ion source and data acquisition parameters to ensure they get the data they need for decision-making. This allows the chemist to obtain optimal data without needing to be an expert in mass spectrometry.

Mass Express

Mass Express, the expression CMS software, was developed to provide chemists with answers in the fewest steps and shortest period of time possible in an easy-to-use interface. Whether your application is FIA/CMS, Flash/CMS, LC/CMS or flow reaction monitoring, the Mass Express data acquisition and workflow solutions are simple, inviting and efficient.

  • Simple software controlled from laptop
  • Contact closure or batch capability
  • 4 analogue outputs for fraction collection of 4 analytes

Data Express

Data Express is the data processing software program which accomplishes the perfect balance: easily analyze and display results, or use a wealth of software resources to mine the data for accurate decision-making, archiving or exporting.

Far beyond lazy UV peaks with features due to unknown causes, Data Express delivers the exact information required to monitor reactions, confirm fractions of interest, speed workflow, and move on to the next research interest. Data Express exports net.cdf and .csv files for complete analytical consideration.

LC Integration

Integration with over 250 LC systems is accomplished with Clarity from DataApex, allowing chemists maximum flexibility and adaptability within their lab.  Features of the Clarity software include complete instrument control, data acquisition and processing, a full quantitation package, CFR21 part 11 compliance, and MS libraries.

Additionally, Mass Express offers direct integration with Agilent Technologies’ liquid chromatography systems. Using Agilents Instrument Control Framework (ICF), the user interface is identical to the Mass Hunter experience.

Screening of Dietary Supplements by ASAP® Compact Mass Spectrometry

In this application note, we demonstrate the use of the Advion expressionL CMS with an atmospheric solids analysis probe (ASAP) ion source to analyze two supplements (figure 1) that contain DMBA, a synthetic stimulant that has not been tested on humans. The substance is the chemical cousin to drug DBAA, which is currently banned by…

Chemically Tracking Spoilage of Meat Using Vapor Mass Spectrometry

This application note demonstrates the use of the Advion expression CMS (compact mass spectrometer) coupled with a vapor APCI (vAPCI) ion source to directly detect several key chemicals given off of meat as it spoils at ambient temperature. Evolution of putrescine, cadaverine, and indole were measured  over several days as meat spoiled.

Protein analysis via LC/CMS with automated charge state deconvolution

The Advion deconvolution algorithm employs a combination of predictive charge envelope generation, overlap calculation with actual MS data acquired utilizing a maximum entropy goodness of fit approach followed by artifact removal through determination of peak significance. This novel approach allows for a rapid deconvolution over a wide mass range in seconds. It also allows a…

LC/MS Screening For EDTA In Fresh Blood Swabs Using the Advion expression CMS System

This application note suggests that a simple LC/MS screen of a relatively fresh sample of human whole blood collected from a lavender capped potassium EDTA anticoagulant blood sample applied to a cotton swab can be analyzed by full-scan positive ion or negative ion LC/MS using a compact single quadrupole mass spectrometer (expression CMS).
