PRESS RELEASE

TraceFinder 1.1

Thermo Fisher Scientific has released TraceFinder 1.1, its latest software for clinical research, forensic toxicology, food safety and environmental testing laboratories performing routine, high-throughput quantitation by LC-MS. The software retains all of the capabilities of its predecessor and has been expanded to include complete integration with the Thermo Scientific Transcend system. It is also compatible with all of the company’s quantitative mass spectrometry platforms, including the Exactive and LTQ family of systems.

Designed to make routine LC-MS quantitation and targeted analysis easier, faster and more productive, the TraceFinder software offers a four-step, workflow-driven method setup and fully automated data acquisition, data processing and reporting. It includes an extensive choice of preconfigured methods and more than 50 report templates, as well as compound data stores for selected reaction monitoring (SRM) experiments in environmental testing, food safety residue analysis, clinical research and forensic toxicology applications. Data review is simple with the ability to specify and report multiple flags. To protect the integrity of analytical data, the software includes a rights-based secure user login system.
