Version 2022 of Method Selection Suite improves existing features. Read below for details, and contact us for help upgrading your software.
- We improved data import from:
- Waters UNIFI and Waters Connect with ACD/Labs “Connect to” tool. You can now import processed results and import and view each file within a project. Import RDa data too.
- OpenLab CDS Add-On—we have increased the peak fields and custom parameters we import
- Xcalibur—you can view the UV wavelength on import and in the data processing interface
- Shimadzu LabSolutions CDS Add-On—we have increased the metadata and peak fields we import
- Bruker CompassXtract—we have accelerated the translation process allowing you quicker access to your data
- Import from Archive (i.e., *.zip) – you can save time by skipping the unzip step for supported archived folder formats
Transfer Methods without Impacting Method Performance by Varying Optimization Parameters
- You can now vary column optimization parameters and autogenerate methods to aid method transfer between groups or CxO partners without impacting method performance.
- Modify column optimization parameters for methods (e.g., flow rate, column length, column diameter, dwell volume, etc.)
- Autogenerate a new group of methods with all possible combinations of varied parameters to ensure coverage of relevant method space.
Select and Transfer Multiple Methods Simultaneously
- New columns containing method data (e.g., critical pairs, start %B duration, etc.) have been added.
- You can now select multiple methods for deletion or transfer to the processing interface.
- Selected simulated chromatograms can be transferred to the processing interface as individual datasets or series (with relevant metadata e.g., critical pairs, gradient program, run time, Min Rs, etc.) Previously, you could only select and transfer one method at a time.
New Features for MS & Chrom Data Processing
Inclusion of NIST MS Search
- You can now use the NIST MS Search in spectral searching (also available as part of the IXCR workflow)
Improved Hit Refinement for GC/MS Data with Component Deconvolution Workflows
- The software now supports radical cation (+.) structures. You can now automatically identify radical cations in data interpretation.
Improved Features for MS & Chrom Data Processing
Greater flexibility when working with series of flat chromatograms in hyphenated data sets (LC/UV/MS, GC/MS)
- Flat chromatograms and hyphenated data can be combined as series and saved as separate *.spectrus files. Table of Components, structures and biotransformation maps can be saved for each trace.
Transfer Peaks to the Table of Components
- You can now choose to merge or overwrite when transferring named peaks to the Table of Components
Filter Spectral Search Results by Spectrum Polarity
- You can now choose to filter spectral search results by spectrum polarity to ensure hits are relevant to your data
Improvements in Processing Multiply Charged Ions
Improved Verification of Multiply Charged Ions
- Now you can include multiply charged ions in the MS match verification of your molecular formula or structure
Find Target Ions
- You can now find target ions when any charge state (+/- 6) is present.
Set Filters for Auto Peak Picking
- You can now set a minimum USP signal-to-noise ratio to filter out peaks selected in the automatic peak picking algorithm
Report MSn Spectra
- You can choose to report multiple spectra by collision energy range and/or a specified value(s)
Increased Flexibility in Reporting LC/MS Data
- You can report peaks and components, one-per-page
Ease of Use Improvements
- Set the number of decimal places for mass values rounding before calculating of Mass Error
- Set the number of decimal places to be displayed for peak retention time and area values
- Isotope clusters can now be highlighted in the spectrum for formulae generated by Formula Generator and placed in the Table of Formulae
- There is now a new keyboard shortcut for horizontal zooming in spectra and chromatograms
New Features for NMR Data Processing
Process NUS Data with New Fast Algorithm
- You can now reconstruct 2D raw data acquired in Non-Uniform-Sampling (NUS) mode with a new, faster algorithm
Reference X Nuclei Spectra by Absolute Frequency
- You can now perform absolute referencing of the X nucleus (e.g., 15N, 19F, 31P, etc.) axis of 1D and 2D spectra based on a starting 1H or 13C spectrum
- For Bruker/TopSpin spectra of the same sample recorded consecutively, you use the observed absolute frequency of the reference signal from the 1H or 13C 1D spectra to reference the X spectra
Identify Overlayed 2D Spectra from New Color Legend
- You can now see which color corresponds to which spectrum in a legend when overlaying 2D spectra
Use *.spectrus Files in Group Macros
- You can now execute group macros on multiple *.spectrus files
Improved Features for NMR Data Processing
Better Handling of Multiplets on the Side of Broad Water Peaks
- You can now get a more accurate integration of multiplets found on the edges of broad water peaks by enabling the Ignore Broad Water Peak option in your multiplet analysis
New Fields in the Table of User Data
- You can now see the reference and signal that were used in the Table of User Data
- You can now see the sum of all relative integrals for 1H spectra in the Table of User Data
See When Fourier Transform is Active in Preprocessing
- You can now see when Fourier transform is active in the Preprocessing Options to prevent disruptions to subsequent tasks
Apply 1D and 2D Preferences to all Open 1D and 2D Spectra
- You can now apply a set of preferences to all open 1D or 2D spectra with a single mouse-click, instead of having to repeat for each spectrum
Set Filters for Auto-Peak Picking
- You can now set a minimum USP signal to noise ratio to filter out peaks selected in the automatic peak-picking algorithm
