CheMS

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

Peak Express

Peak Express, the latest addition to Advion’s Mass Express software, offers a new type of mass spectrum: the Delta Spectrum (ΔS). The patented ΔS is able to look beyond chemical noise and automatically detect even the smallest peaks without knowing the m/z. With Peak Express you can easily find adducts, dimers, fragments, side-reactions and other unexpected compounds at the click of a button, in real-time or with post-processing. The software highlights minor components in complex mixtures and dirty matrices, and can give you the ability to control mass-directed purification without providing the compound mass. Finally, users can easily acquire XIC-quality data while scanning the entire mass range, allowing Peak Express to tell you the m/z.

Quant Express

Quant Express, an addition to Advion’s user friendly Mass Express 4.1 software suite, is a full feature quantitation application for LC/MS data. The quantitation method can be configured in Mass Express before the analysis or in Quant Express post-analysis and it supports calibration curves, internal standards, QCs and unknowns using SIM or scan mode data. An enhanced peak detection algorithm ensures highest accuracy and ease of use.

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

Advion now offers a streamlined (U)HPLC package for the seamless integration with the expression CMS.

For other solutions, 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.

iASAP Analysis of Air-Sensitive Compounds via Inert Sampling Techniques

Many chemical reactions carried out by synthetic chemists involve air-sensitive compounds such as metal catalysts and organometallics and must therefore be carried out in a glove box or using a Schlenk line to prevent oxidation and hydrolysis. Sampling and transportation of these samples to a mass spectrometer by an Atmospheric Solids Analysis Probe (ASAP ®)…

Identification of a Pesticide Used in Lawn Care by vAPCI Compact Mass Spectrometry

At regular intervals throughout the year a local lawn service applies pesticides to the lawn surrounding the Advion headquarters in Ithaca, NY. The grass is very uniform and not a single dandelion or crabgrass plant is visible – so we wondered, what chemical do they use? After an application in the early spring, we sampled…

Analyses of Different Grades of Olive Oil by Volatile Mass Spectrometry

In this application note, we demonstrate the use of the Advion expression CMS with a volatile APCI (vAPCI) ion source to analyze extra-virgin, virgin, and lampante olive oil samples. We show statistical analysis allowing us to categorize and identify olive oil samples by their grade. This technique allows us to test individual olive oil samples and…
