Analyst® TF software companion applications like PeakView® and ProteinPilot™ software the incorrect mass spectrometer name in its group file output file. When a TripleTOF® 5600 system was selected, the group file contains the name QSTAR® Elite instead for system information. This causes the wrong results to be output; if the incorrect instrument name is used, then the incorrect tolerance settings are applied.
Use the following workaround: Edit the ParameterTranslation file by copying the TripleTOF 5600 instrument parameters into the QSTAR Elite parameter section. The group files will still say QSTAR Elite, but the proper tolerance settings will be applied. There is no risk to this modification unless actively running searches of both TripleTOF 5600 and QSTAR Elite data. (In which case, toggle between the two parameter translation files.)
