Automated quality control analysis of accumulated RAW data? Am I sleeping? After years of dreaming about quality control being taken seriously in Proteomics, the last year has been a revelation! People all over the place are talking about great things like the PRTC (Peptide retention time calibration) standards from Pierce and new software is whispered about all over the place.
But this one is real and from (who else?) our friends at IMP and the Austrian Academy of Sciences. SympatiQCo is the product of Michael Mazanek and is meant to be a server based system to automatically QC your LC-MS runs. It looks at peak shape, retention time and can even perform Mascot test searches if a server is available.
Definitely go here to find out more!
