Masslynx with standard features Transform Data Into Usable Results !!!
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area: Pesticide scrreening

"The challenges across the mass analysis in routine usage are multi fold once we need to ensure equipment setup and checks for routine QC compliance, Generate and select optimized method, Check QC and standard injections, Review Data and Prepare reports, Compare equipment performance for Day to Day and Week to week to maintain the Lab productivity. To understand how our quantitative workflow brings such significant benefits, we need to understand what must be done for every batch of samples that is analysed. All of these processes must be compliant with the laboratories quality system, the severity of which will vary dependant on the market the laboratory works within. Before any batch of samples is acquired, the analytical system needs to be set-up and checked – does it meet the laboratory SOP and quality requirements, is it ready for that method? It is then a matter of selecting the correct method, or generating the method if it is a new method, it is also critical that the method is optimised for the MS – are all of the MRMs scheduled in time to ensure maximum duty cycle? Once the method is acquiring, it is important to know that the data is of the required quality, typically checking the blanks, calibration standards and QC injections and comparing with SOP and QC criteria. Once all of the data is acquired, it needs to be reviewed and reports prepared, checking concentrations against limits, are all QC tolerances such as ion ratios, recoveries OK? Finally, and highly important within an accredited lab is being able to see how today’s QC results compare with yesterdays, or last weeks, or last months – are the differences between different operators, any systematic changes over time? I have found Mass Lynx as an amazing software platform due to having standard features as Intellistart, QCmonitor, TrendPlot, Target Lynx and Quanpedia which helps me to automatically do the following tasks. This stream lined quantitative workflow is integral to allowing us to achieve the high levels of performance we really want. Remember, high performance is not just high sensitivity, it is the ability to get the right result, every time, reliably – this unique workflow ass complete package especially as a standard feature is something I really admire. This enables everyone to have the ideal situation of the greatest degree of automation, automating the routine time consuming tasks, ensuring that the instrument operates in the same way every time. People are different, two people will generate two different outcomes, and computers are repetitive and will arrive at the same outcome every time. These software tools allow all users to get the same results, using truly optimised experiments. The data is monitored against user defined tolerances whilst acquiring, automatically taking user specified corrective action in the event of something being out of tolerance. IntelliStart Automatically set up instrument, optimise MRMs and perform system suitability Quanpedia Generate optimised methods, time scheduled MRMs QCMonitor Real time QC, Intelligent ‘on the fly’ decision making TargetLynx Methods generated automatically by QuanPedia, Clear flagging = reduced risk of errors TrendPlot Long term system monitoring, Good lab management tool"

Ideal tool to treat large amounts of data. I definitely recommend this software to anyone who works in analytical chemistry.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Treat LC-MS method validation analytical data

"This software is the ideal tool to treat the large amount of data that we always get from validation and revalidation procedures. It is very straight forward to use, almost every command that I need I get it in the same page. I definitely recommend this software to anyone who works in analytical chemistry."

Acquire, Analyze, Manage, and Share Mass Spectrometry Information

MassLynx™ Software increases the speed at which you can convert your sample data into valuable knowledge. It provides you with the fundamental platform to acquire, analyze, manage, and share your mass spectrometry information.

MassLynx intelligently controls any Waters mass spectrometry system, from sample and solvent management components to mass spectrometer and auxiliary detectors. MassLynx Software may acquire nominal mass, exact mass, MS/MS and exact mass MS/MS data.

MassLynx’s Sample List is the core of the system. It maintains and consolidates the data on all of your samples. You also initiate any activities related to your sample from the Sample List. This "sample centric" approach simplifies the interaction with your LC/MS or GC/MS system, acquired data and processed results.

Process Application-specific Data

MassLynx Software features general purpose and specialized Application Managers that provide information for your specific MS analyses and data. Two come standard with MassLynx:

  • QuanLynx™ for automated quantification included as standard with MassLynx
  • OpenLynx™ for qualitative screening and identification

Optional Application Managers can perform:

  • Targeted quantitative analysis
  • Mass-directed purification
  • Metabolite identification
  • Deconvolution of complex chromatograms
  • Metabonomics & metabolomics
  • Protein identification and protein characterization
