MS Extension

Ellution Mass Spectrometry Extension

The Ellution MS Extension is a tool that is used for processing data that has been acquired from selected MS detectors. Spectral data, together with chromatograms, add a third dimension to analytical data analysis.

The MS Extension expands the capability of Ellution Chromatography software by providing interactive spectral analysis, peak purity analysis and compound identification that is based on a spectral library search. The extension is prepared to function with single quadrupole MS detectors and TOF MS detectors.

The MS Extension is an optional extension for the Ellution and Ellution Offline Chromatography Stations version 5 and newer. The Ellution Chromatography Station is designed to acquire and evaluate data from up to four chromatographs at a time (multi-detector measurement support). Any Instrument within the Ellution station can use the MS Extension.

All data is saved in a single file; a chromatogram at any m/z value or even only a spectrum can simply be recalled for review after an analysis. MS spectra, acquired using a MS detector, may be interactively selected from a chromatogram signal for visual inspection and comparison. The spectra may also be used for peak purity determinations and component identification through spectral libraries.

Control modules for selected detectors are being prepared for Ellution version 5.0.1, with further MS detectors being supported with next versions. Additional control modules for particular MS detectors can be developed upon request.
