Shimadzu and ACD/Labs Form Partnership

Toronto, Canada (June 7, 2010)—Shimadzu has partnered with Advanced Chemistry Development, Inc., (ACD/Labs) to bring together LCMS-IT-TOF high mass accuracy MS/MSn spectrum data with and ACD/Labs fragment assignment tools.

The goal of this partnership is to provide a means for impurity analysis and metabolite identification researchers to automatically assign high mass accuracy ion fragments to spectral peaks, and evaluate the assignment quality for structural elucidation.

Working together with Shimadzu application layer software and LabSolutions software, ACD/MS Manager will be a powerful tool to aid chemical structure analysis and interpretation.
