Mass Mountaineer™ is a program for examining, interpreting, and classifying mass spectra imported as text files. The program provides tools for common mass spectrometry calculations and for generating reports. Compound identification tools were designed to be used with accurate-mass data for single charge ions, but nominal-mass data are also supported. There are some tools included for calculations with multiple charge ions.
Mass Mountaineer™ includes many additional functions including:
- Mass defect plots, including 3D-Kendrick Mass Defect plots.
- Mass difference searches.
- Series and mass defect searches and calculations.
- Chemometric functions (e,g, principal component analysis, linear discriminant analysis, heat maps).
- Basic functions for viewing profile data.
- Calculations for proteins, peptides, nucleotides and lipids.
- Searches against internet chemical databases.
SUMMARY OF MASS MOUNTAINEER FEATURES
Target compound search.
Mass defect plots.
Series and mass difference searches.
Isotope matching based on both mass and relative abundance.
Search databases for compounds with matching compositions
NIST, Wiley and NIST-formatted custom databases.
Integrated web search of common chemical databases.
Identify presence and number of X+2 elements (S, Si, Br, Cl) from isotope data.
Heuristic filtering of elemental compositions (“Seven Golden Rules”).
“Superatoms” and user-defined elements, e.g oligomers, custom isotope labels.
Histogram, profile and Gaussian plots for any composition at any resolving power (small and large molecules).
Single or multiple charge ions.
Superatoms and custom elements (e.g. custom isotope labels)
Adducts and losses.
Model overlapping isotope distributions.
Supervised and unsupervised learning algorithms allow you to identify patterns in data from samples belonging to different classes.Classification methods include regular and kernel Principal Component Analysis and Linear Discriminant Analysis, Partial Least Squares Discriminant Analysis and Support Vector Machines.
View exact masses and isotopic abundances for natural isotopes or user-defined “superatoms” (such as oligomer units or isotope labels).
Heat maps visualize differences between mass spectra belonging to different sample populations. Fisher ratios assist in feature selection for chemometric algorithms. Heat map data can be exported for hierarchical cluster analysis.
You can download a 30-day trial version of Mass Mountaineer 6.0 in order to evaluate the software. The trial version provides the same functionality as the licensed version, but will require you to purchase the licensed version to continue using the software after 30 days.
System Requirements: Mass Mountaineer requires the Microsoft .NET 4.5.2 run time files to be installed on the computer. If you are running Windows 10, then the run time files are already installed. If you are running an earlier version of Windows, then you may need to download and install the run time files.
Installation: Download the ZIP file containing the Mass Mountaineer setup program and extract all files to a folder on the hard drive. Run the installation program, "setup.exe", to install the Mass Mountaineer trial version (do not run the setup program from inside the ZIP file). The Mass Mountaineer manual is also included in the ZIP file.
