MassLynx 4.1

Waters is now shipping Waters MassLynx 4.1 Software, its solution for the company’s line of mass spectrometers. MassLynx Software has been enhanced and reconfigured to facilitate high-performance quantification and qualitative analysis so that users can process and review results, and generate reports more easily.

MassLynx 4.1 Software also includes a new administrator toolkit that lets system administrators manage resources from a remote PC. The toolkit features software to monitor basic sample information and instrument status for all users.

In addition, the software queues multiple sample runs without disrupting current operations. A new security architecture supports a network file server model for data acquisition so that multiple users have access to data and results.

Additional new features include: support to optimise instrument settings for resolution and sensitivity for the Quattro Premier, Quattro micro and ZQ mass spectrometers; enhancements to instrument control for the LCT Premier and Q-Tof Premier mass spectrometers to automate instrument setup and ensure high-quality exact mass data; and tighter integration with Waters NuGenesis SDMS (Scientific Data Management System) 7.0 Software. This allows for the automatic storage of raw mass spectrometry data, processed results and printed information directly into NuGenesis SDMS.
