NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Agilent Technologies today said that it has signed an agreement to distribute Cerno Bioscience's MassWorks calibration and analysis software for use with all of Agilent's GC/MSD systems.

Agilent said that Cerno's technology increases the accuracy of its single-quadrupole GC/MSD to enable identification of unknown compounds. It added that the technology calibrates raw MS data for "significantly higher mass accuracy and unparalleled spectral accuracy, enabling elemental composition determination on these otherwise conventional MS systems."
