Waters' Metabolic Profiling CCS Library

Waters has announced its Metabolic Profiling CCS library for use during ion mobility mass spectrometry-based research. The library includes more than 9000 measurements of collision cross-section values, which measure the gas phase three-dimensional shape of a molecule for an additional identification coordinate used to confirm analytical results. It also include more than 600 MS/MS spectra. The product enables research scientists to accurately identify biomarkers in complex sample matrices when using ion mobility separations, the company said. The library is included in Waters' UNIFI Scientific Information System, the company's unique software platform, and is also available for use with Progenesis QI software.
