SprayQC -- take the guesswork out of nanospray!
Picture this: Middle of the night and your deep into fraction 7 of these tumor digests and your spray goes all wonky. Normally, you get in the next morning and it ruins your day. Sample lost forever. But if you have SprayQC and your spray goes wonky? The runs stop. And by wonky, I mean that it is using a video to monitor your spray stability in real time, it also monitors your LC system for errors and it monitors you TIC baseline for weirdness. If these occur, SprayQC stops after your run and then sends you an email describing why and how the run was stopped. In my opinion, everyone should have this software installed on their PC. It was written with the EasyNano and the NanoFlex source in mind, but it is easily adaptable to other LCs and nanosources.
