SCIEX OS Software 1.6 Release – New Automatic Data Processing for X-Series QTOF Systems

Sep 18, 2019 | Blogs, Software, Technology | 0 comments


Automatic data processing is now available!

In response to your requests, laboratories using our X-Series QTOF systems can now automatically process samples in the queue after each sample has been acquired. The fully automated batch data processing increases throughput and enhances the overall experience.

What else is new?
SCIEX OS Software is our next-generation mass spectrometry software solution that offers fast data acquisition and the combined quantitative and qualitative data analysis tools that laboratory scientists need. Whether the workflows are basic or complex, from fully compliant routine analyses to totally flexible research workflows, the SCIEX OS Software platform can be configured to support them all.

SCIEX OS is available with three different feature sets:

  • SCIEX OS-MQ – For quantitative processing. Replaces MultiQuant™ software.
  • SCIEX OS-Q – For qualitative analysis. Replaces the combination workflow using PeakView™, MasterView™, and LibraryView™ software. It also includes the quantitative functionality of SCIEX OS-MQ.
  • SCIEX OS for Acquisition – For acquisition on the X-series QTOF MS Systems. It includes all quantitative and qualitative processing functionality.

For version 1.6, a specific focus was placed on further enhancing the data processing capabilities in SCIEX OS-Q and SCIEX OS-MQ. The goal was to help accelerate deployment and implementation of SCIEX OS software as a preferred processing solution.

Users will benefit from the new features, enhancements, and fixes, further improving the efficiency of how MS data is analyzed.

Overview of new features in version 1.6

Automatic data processing
The software can automatically process samples in the queue after data has been acquired.

The user triggers processing for samples in one of the following ways:

  • Specify a new Results file and select a processing method
  • Select an existing Results file. Embedded processing method will appear in a dropdown tab and the user can choose the processing method required.

A project audit event is recorded when a Results file is saved during automatic processing.

Shortcut keys added to the analytics workspace
The Analytics workspace now supports the following shortcut keys:

Automatic MRM method creation
Create an on-the-fly method containing all the MRMs contained in the samples selected. This is most useful when MRM transitions differ between samples.

Ability to set the Analyst® Data\Projects folder as the root directory
Users can set an Analyst software Projects folder as the root directory, to more easily process Analyst software data.

Ability to set the Global Integration Parameters as you require
The global default project settings can now be changed. The user can change the default project settings for the active project. Any new projects take the settings from the active project.

Import of Integration Parameters from the Analyst Software
SCIEX OS supports the import of integration parameters from Analyst software quantification methods. Analyst software parameters are mapped to the corresponding SCIEX OS parameters, and the project default settings are used for any parameters that cannot be mapped.

Support for Office 365
The report functionality in the Analytics workspace now supports Microsoft Word for Office 365.

Support for new computer
The first SCIEX branded computer is now available with greater processing power to help data processing. The software supports the new SCIEX Alpha Workstation 2020.

Using wastewater monitoring to assess exposure to PFAS

Per-and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) are known for their water- and grease-resistant properties, which make them useful in many everyday items. In fact, a study from 2020 estimated over 200 “use categories” covering more than 1,400 individual PFAS compounds in commercial products—they are truly all around us. Due to their extensive presence and potentially harmful effects (these effects are still mostly uncertain), exposure to PFAS is a growing concern. Humans and wildlife have been exposed to these chemicals through a variety of routes, including food packaging, drinking water and cleaning products.
