Nontargeted Small Molecule Identification with PeakView® and MasterView™
Nontargeted identification using high-resolution mass spectrometry requires powerful software tools and a structured workflow. After samples are screened for compounds using exact mass product ion libraries and online databases, further analysis must be performed to identify compounds that are not in databases, such as novel metabolites, degradants, and Impurities. Software tools including formula finding and fragment prediction tools must be used to identify the most probable formulas and structures of the nontargeted compounds.
This training will cover the full array of tools in PeakView and MasterView software for identifying nontargeted compounds with the highest possible degree of confidence.
Key Learning Points:
Step-by-step workflow for nontargeted identification
PeakView and MasterView tools for structural identification
Distinctions between suspect screening and nontargeted identification
