ACD/IXCR—Intelligent Compound Recognition

Automated Component Detection and Spectral Matching for ACD/MS Workbook Suite

Intelligent Compound Recognition with ACD/IXCR

Reduce the time spent on manual interpretation and validation of
GC/MS spectra with ACD/IXCR.

Extract analyte ion chromatograms with automated COmponent Detection Algorithms (CODA), eliminating manual interpretation and potential errors

Automate the identification workflow with batch processing
Extra, automate, search and report with ACD/IXCR
Search NIST and Wiley databases for related spectra. Easily compare possible matches with mirrored spectra

Report results in both Excel and PDF formats, from the tabulated display window

ACD/IXCR is a suite of software tools for Intelligent Compound Recognition, which automates both the deformulation of complex chemical mixtures, environmental and water samples, and the identification of components through spectral matching. Designed to integrate with ACD/MS Workbook Suite, this software provides truly intelligent compound recognition.

  • Automated detection of analyte mass chromatograms and separation from background noise
  • Automated database searching through MSSearch (using either a NIST or other library), with automatic matching of spectra based on similarity
  • Optional access to a variety of Wiley Mass Spectral databases for broader chemical coverage
  • Incorporation of experimental spectra into a searchable database to further speed up future analysis
  • Easy-to-review results; simple reporting to Microsoft® Excel or Adobe® PDF formats
  • User-friendly for analysts, with powerful analytical tools for expert users
  • Supports instruments from all major vendors; see all supported file formats

If you are a Shimadzu customer or intend to import Shimadzu data, check if any Shimadzu software has already been installed on the same computer prior to installing any of the ACD/Labs mass spectrometry packages. Problems can occur if both are installed on the same computer. For further assistance, please contact ACD/Labs Technical Support.
