PMCID: 5890289
PMID: 29632321
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24149-w

[…] an in-house standard library, previously published literature, and freely available ms spectral databases. the tentative annotation of compounds based on spectral database searches was performed in ms-dial. for some of the compounds with no spectral database matches, tentative ids were given based on in silico generated ms/ms spectra acquired from molecular database entries using ms-finder […]

PMCID: 5830882
PMID: 29491435
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-21555-y

[…] the metabolic profiling assessed., metabolite identification process was conducted by comparing the measured mass spectra with standard mass spectra and the retention index in fiehnlib with ms dial software. the raw data (table ) were treated with series steps of treatment, including: (1) removing the unknowns. (2) dealing with duplicates. the duplicates linear relationship test […]

PMCID: 5800286
PMID: 29402267
DOI: 10.1186/s12936-018-2223-7

[…] after dad using a split 1:1 between cad and orbitrap., data processing and statistical analysis were performed as previously described []. briefly, the uhplc-hrms raw data were processed with ms-dial v.2.56 for mass signal extraction and peaks alignment []. molecular formula prediction and compound annotation of significant features (m/z, rt pairs) were calculated with ms-finder 2.10 []. […]

[…] ( [, ]. freely available software which combines one or more of the above steps includes the analysis of lipid experiments (alex), lipostar, ms-dial, and lipid mass spectrum analysis (limsa) platforms [–]. numerous commercially available and instrument vendor-specific software packages have also been developed to streamline lipidomics […]
