Continuing the theme of unlocking the power from the data that is already generated from mass spec analyses is ACD/Labs, with the launch of the MS Structure ID software solution. Again, developed as a solution rather than just a product, MS Structure ID combines some of ACD/Labs' existing software products (local ChemSpider database, observed versus predicted fragment ion filtering, and ranking by predicted retention times) into an off–the-shelf solution for the identification of unknown components. The product reduces the time taken to identify structures from weeks to minutes.
