QC Reporter™: mass confirmation and quality assessment
Automated QC Analysis Software for MALDI-8020
QC Reporter™: mass confirmation and quality assessment with confidence Within a given manufacturing process, quality control (QC) plays a fundamental role in guaranteeing the supply of a high quality product. QC Reporter is an automated analysis and reporting software solution for QC environments. Compatible with the MALDI-8020 benchtop linear MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer, this software provides a simple and secure platform for typical QC workflows.
QC Reporter is a fully automated software application designed for high-throughput quality control analysis using MALDI-TOF MS. The acquisition, calibration, processing, quality assessment and reporting processes are performed automatically within a single platform and a simple, intuitive workflow design. Using QC Reporter, a typical QC experiment can be performed with a few simple steps:
• Defining the acquisition and quality assessment criteria settings
• Importing samples for analysis using a predefined sample worklist
• Viewing and/or exporting the results
The quality criteria (detection of the target mass and amount of permitted adducts/impurities) are applied on the fly for each acquired sample and are presented in a colour-coded manner providing an at a glance summary for easy reading. The option to subsequently export a summary of the entire experiment or to generate individual sample reports provides the user with options for different workflows.
- Security via individual user login and Administrator control of user roles and permissions
applicable to different applications (peptides, proteins, oligonucleotides and small molecules)
- Fully compatible with the MALDI-8020 mass spectrometer
- Simple operation:
set the acquisition and criteria parameter sets, run the samples and view the results
- Intuitive user-interface:
colour-coded results providing an at a glance summary of the QC experiment. Review individual results via the interactive slide graphic
- Comprehensive reporting:
all relevant information is presented in exportable sample reports
- Seamless relationship with MALDI Solutions Data Acquisition software via the MALDI Solutions database

Intuitive user interface and automatic acquisition improve work efficiency.
A wide selection of user-defined parameters can be configured as acceptance criteria for the QC assay, providing flexibility for the user to customize each type of experiment for a given application. These include:...
During an experiment, the acquired spectrum and result for each analyzed sample are displayed in realtime on the target slide graphic using the colour-coded results reporting schema. At the end of the experiment, the results are presented as a tabulated, colour-coded summary report in the main results window. From this view, the user can further interrogate individual sample results....
User-access to QC Reporter is via password-protected login and is controlled by a System Administrator who manages access within the application. The Administrator is able to control access to features within the software via various roles which can be applied to individual user accounts....

Life Science Biomarker Industry Page has been updated
Biomarkers are derived from living organisms and found in tissues, blood, and other bodily fluids. Biomarkers are indicators of biological changes in an organism and are used to diagnose disease, in prognosis, and to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pharmaceuticals. Biomarkers can be nucleic acids, proteins, peptides, lipids, and sugars, and are identified using various “omics” techniques.
