Cerno Bioscience today announces the official release of a new version of its flagship MassWorks™ product to further enhance this best formula determination software for mass spectrometry (MS). In addition to the conventional maintenance improvement, this new release allows for the option to use well known empirical chemical formula rules to eliminate up to 50% of unlikely formulas from consideration and further speed up the challenging unknown formula ID process.

At its debut at PittCon 2006, MassWorks won the Most Innovative Product Award for enabling routine formula determination on an otherwise conventional quadrupole MS with 100 times improved mass accuracy through a novel and patented MS calibration algorithm. Significant new features have since been added to this innovative software including CLIPS™ with the Spectral Accuracy concept, now a proven companion concept to mass accuracy and recently published as a front cover feature article in Analytical Chemistry ( Version 2.0 of the MassWorks software expanded the concept of Spectral Accuracy to TOF, qTOF, Orbitrap, FT ICR MS, or other high resolution systems through sCLIPS™, which can eliminate up to 95% of the incorrect formula candidates obtained with accurate mass measurements alone.

Dr. Ming Gu, VP Research of Cerno Bioscience comments: “With the innovative calibration technology embedded in MassWorks, the product has enjoyed great commercial success by winning over hundreds of loyal users worldwide. The release of MassWorks Version 3.0 further solidifies the industry leading position MassWorks software has held in MS elemental composition determination. As an industry innovator, Cerno plans to continuously bring new features and products to both existing and future customers.”
