Agilent Technologies has introduced two applications that it says further enhance its MassHunter Workstation software and LC/MS, GC/MS and ICP-MS instruments.
According to Agilent, these new applications empower users to rapidly create targeted screening methods for food safety and forensic analysis, and to characterise intact proteins and biosimilars for biopharmaceutical research.
The new Agilent MassHunter All Ions MS/MS and MassHunter BioConfirm programs are designed to significantly increase laboratory productivity and streamline method-development processes.
'We are continuously looking for ways to help laboratories enhance their research outcomes and speed up the discovery process,' said Steve Madden, Agilent’s product manager for LC/MS software. 'These two additions to our larger suite of MassHunter software will go a long way to help researchers maximise the quality of their data and further optimise the power of our LC/MS instrumentation.'
The new MassHunter All Ions MS/MS software enables researchers to quickly and easily create acquisition methods using Agilent time-of-flight and quadrupole time-of-flight instruments. It will also automatically confirm the identities of compounds with high-resolution, accurate-mass libraries and create quantitative screening methods in minutes rather than days, the company says.
