Have you ever wondered why there is no systematic approach for identifying unknown compounds from a mass spectrum? Mass spectra, unlike NMR and IR spectra, have no frame of reference. Each fragment mass has to be interpreted in the context of other masses.
Are you open to new approaches? If accurate mass fragmentation data is available in your laboratory, our patented pattern recognition software allows you to visualize your unknown molecule as being composed of underlying small "subfragments" that show how fragment ions are related to each other. This pattern recognition software, now available as a simple Excel® Add-In, uses the power of mathematics to rapidly transform accurate-mass fragmentation data into a structure-orientated graphical format, and our high resolution isotope calculator worksheet plots the isotope distributions in color based on the selected resolution setting. (Example).
By building upon the graphical and computational capabilities of Excel, the Add-In can be offered at a very reasonable price. The Add-In also includes some very useful mass spectral functions for Excel that fill down and across like any other Excel function. This Excel Add-In is so simple to learn that the user manual is a single Excel worksheet available in six languages.
