Image acquisition software tools | Mass spectrometry imaging analysis
Most of software tools for acquiring Mass Spectrometry imaging (MSI) data are usually instrument vendor-specific and proprietary. Given the diversity of technologies wich have been developed in MSI (e.g., MALDI imaging and SIMS imaging), acquisition software solutions have to be tailored.
Enables the visualization of imaging data, creating two-dimensional and three-dimensional maps of analyzed tissue for the optimal display of data. ImageQuest software offers pathologists and pharmaceutical researchers a complete package for the acquisition and presentation of MS images directly from tissue samples.
A vendor-neutral interface built on the Matlab platform designed to view and perform data analysis of Mass Spectrometry Imaging (MSI) data. A standalone version of MSiReader for which Matlab is not required is also provided. People who are unfamiliar with the Matlab language will have little difficulty navigating the user friendly interface, and users with Matlab programming experience can adapt and customize MSiReader for their own needs.
Serves for imaging/depth profiling mass spectrometers. ChiMS is designed for a laser-based time-of-flight mass spectrometer optimized for: (1) transferring large datasets from a digitizer to computer memory at high repetition rate; (2) saving data to hard disk at high throughput; and (3) automating data processing, imaging and depth profiling experiments. The data acquisition mode generally simulates a digital oscilloscope, but with peripheral devices integrated for control as well as advanced data sorting and processing capabilities.
A custom designed software for automated imaging of samples on an Applied Biosystems Voyager instrument. Key features of the software are: 1) Comprehensive sample database (MS Access) which is easy to interface with other applications 2) Implements seamless with the existing software from Applied Biosystems 3) Scan range may be manually entered or the coordinates may be directly transferred from the Voyager Control.
Serves for matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) imaging. MITICS is composed of MITICS Image for data processing and images reconstruction and MITICS control for data acquisition. This tool is workable with all type of data whatever the instrument used for both data acquisition when necessary. It uses two different interfaces: one to load all the spectra from each run into a single database, and the second to reconstruct and display interactively the molecular images of interest.
Enables matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionisation imaging mass spectrometry (MALDI-IMS) on Bruker Reflex and Ultraflex instruments. AnalyzeThis assits users to perform mass spectrometry (MS) imaging on Bruker instruments. This tool is able to read the spectra acquired in the mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) experiment, and to convert it to Analyze format for further studies through the BioMap software.
