SpectralWorks Releases AnalyzerPro version 5.5

Version 5. features a number of enhancements including a revision of the user interface which groups common functionalities together for ease of use. Tutorials and trouobleshooting are now included in the help documentation as well as method optimization suggestions.

  • MatrixAnalyzer PCA Plot could fail to display if change to/from use normalized results if a sample has been deleted.
  • Add base peak m/z value to MatrixAnalyzer Report as an option.
  • Component markers on normalized data could be plotted above the TIC.
  • Show Component spectra in matrix viewer could produce and error if a different target library is selected in the method.
  • Quan Viewer Chromatogram Thumbnails previously to 66 now unlimited.
  • Viewing library search spectrum from previous results could be blank.
  • Base peak area added to summary report.
  • Category information now exported from Quan results to Matrix if available.
  • Previously could select up to 5 NIST format libraries for search. Limit removed.
  • Added the "not found"" targets report to Qual reporting.
  • On Display Tab (General) move label m/z have separate functionality on Spectrum and Component Spectrum .
  • In some cases installing an ap.lic file at the end of an evaluation license could fail.
  • ProfileAnalyzer method settings now persist with the saved method.
  • Reset to defaults option added to the Qual method editor.
  • Ribbon bar and panels redesigned. Better layout to reduce mouse movement and clicks.
  • New Views layout provided for Data Viewer, Components, Sequence and Reports.
  • Can create a target component library based on the edited results in MatrixAnalyzer.
  • Display thickness of Chromatograms and Spectra plots can be set in Preferences.
  • The library spectra for the selected component in MatrixAnalyzer can be displayed.
  • Re-calculate the p values for volcano plots based on the categories displayed and not all the categories in the matrix when categories have been removed.
  • In some case the Fold change combo boxes did not change after deleting a category.
  • MatrixAnalyzer bar graph re-displays when removing files.
  • Can copy and paste sample weight and dilution factors into a sequence e.g. from Excel.
  • Can annotate PCA loadings and scores plots.
  • Have an option to display component label in MatrixAnalyzer.
  • Zero p-Values / fold changes are not shown in volcano plot.
  • Molecular formula from NIST search result has been added to the Summary Report.
  • User selectable categories to display the volcano plot.
  • Can filter on the tags / classes and display PCA.
  • Quantitation results can be exported to Matrix for PCA visualization.
  • Components can be deleted from the quantitation results.
  • Editing the ProfileAnalyzer method will recalculate the results.
  • Currently selected component is identified on the Chromatogram with a dot under the chromatogram. Currently selected spectrum is identified with a caret under the Chromatogram.
  • Relative intensity threshold exposed in Elemental Composition method.
  • Spectral matching scores added to ProfileAnalyzer.
  • Force Origin in single point calibration in quantitation calculates R2 and displays curve.
  • Show the EICs for a selected target component.
  • Can view a specific trace over a number of samples in the sequence.
  • Component filter and comment information is shown in the summary report.
  • Can add or delete comment on a component.
  • Detect Current Trace available for UV and analog channels using detect current trace.
  • ProfileAnalyzer components display now has a force labels option to show all component labels regardless of whether they may overlap each other.
  • Multiple columns in reports, e.g. MatrixAnalyzer or Summary Report can be resized at the same time.
  • MatrixAnalzyer Volcano Plot will label the currently selected component on the Volcano Plot as well as highlighting it in the table.
  • Synchronization of component and raw spectra is now an on/off toggle.
  • Quantitation Tutorial added to help files
  • Metabolomics Tutorial added to help file
  • Troubleshooting section added
  • Method optimization guidelines added
