Version 5.1 Release

Advion has just released a new version of Mass Express and Data Express – Version 5.1.

Advion has just released version 5.1 of its Mass Express software suite including updates to Mass Express, Data Express, Quant Express, and the much-anticipated Peak Express™ software for a robust package offering chemists the expertise of a dedicated mass spectroscopist, digging deep in to the data to find small, unknown peaks, as well as the ability to easily obtain quantitative LC/MS data.

The new Peak Express™ software featuring ΔS offers an ultra-sensitive technique that is able to detect even the smallest peaks amongst much larger signals from contaminants and chemical noise. It detects change, not absolute intensity, and zooms in on tiny rapid movements in a field of much larger static or slow-moving signals.

Quant Express, an addition to Advion’s user-friendly Mass Expres 4.0 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.

Features implemented and improved in Mass Express:

  • Control of gradient/binary pump
  • Flow chemistry support
  • Support staggered heating: prevent source gas and transfer line heaters from turning on before capillary heater is equilibrated
  • Features implemented and improved in Data Express
  • Multiple charge deconvolution; automatic and manual
  • Improvements to CheMS

To see what version you are running, click on the ‘i’ button in the System page in Mass Express.

If you wish to upgrade to the new software please contact info@advion.com for upgrade instructions.

Toluene-Assisted APCI and Elemental Composition Prediction Using a Compact Mass Spectrometer

OVERVIEW Toluene-assisted APCI (TAPCI) can generate (M)+· and (M+H)+ ions from analytes that cannot be ionized by ESI or APCI. Elemental formula prediction at 250 ppm accuracy and isotope distribution matching by TAMI (Tal Aviv Molecule Identifier) supports analyte identification. Combining both TAPCI and TAMI on the expression compact mass spectrometer (CMS) provides a cost-effective…

LC/CMS Determination of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHS) in Water (EPA 610 Mix)

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are neutral compounds containing multiple aromatic fused rings that are present in fossil fuels and can be formed from the incomplete combustion of organic material. In recent years, it has been well documented that several PAHs can be potentially carcinogenic via exposure or ingestion. The EPA has classified seven PAHs (benzo[a]pyrene, benz[a]anthracene, chrysene, benzo[b]fluoranthene, benzo[k]fluoranthene, dibenz[a,h]anthracene, and indeno[1,2,3-cd]pyrene) as Group…
