Ideal for education and research, this program simulates the
functioning of a real mass spectrometer. Three modes are provided,
browser, student, and instructor. In browser mode, spectra may be
browsed, manipulated, annotated, and printed. In instructor mode,
spectra can be prepared for students use, including addition of
simulated molecular ion peaks and renaming (to disguise chemical
names). Full password protection is provided for instructor and
student modes. Students may access those spectra prepared by the
Features include the ability to paste bitmaps and text onto the
spectra, insertion of labels (m/z, intensity, or both) added
automatically by setting of an intensity threshold and calculation
and optional labeling of peak differences. Also included is an
isotope calculator and an interface which allows importing spectra
from the NIST/EPA Mass Spectral Database ).
Spectra may also be
manually entered using a spectral creation wizard.
