According to Thermo Fisher Scientific the software enables scientists to go from complex data to actionable, sharable insights by making unknowns known through searching deconvoluted components against mz Cloud, a comprehensive mass-spectral database. In combination with the Thermo Scientific Orbitrap ID-X Tribrid Mass Spectrometer supporting the Thermo Scientific Aquire X intelligent MSn data acquisition strategy, Mass Frontier 8.0 software can be used to capture more low-abundance analytes through streamlined data analysis and mass spectral prediction tools. This eliminates the labor-intensive and time-consuming steps analysts face when identifying small-molecules and their respective fragments using traditional solutions, providing greater insights, understanding and confidence when turning data into actionable knowledge.
