We’re always looking to improve our support for vendor specific data formats, and we are pleased to announce that Progenesis LC‑MS and Progenesis CoMet now support direct loading of AB SCIEX WIFF files.
Previously, we recommended users of AB SCIEX machines convert their WIFF files to mzML prior to importing into Progenesis. The release of this new plugin removes this conversion step, which we hope will further streamline the workflow of our customers with AB SCIEX machines.
AB SCIEX plugin download
Support for WIFF files is provided as a plugin, which can be downloaded free of charge from these locations:
- Progenesis LC‑MS
Download the AB SCIEX WIFF plugin for Progenesis LC‑MS v4.1
For earlier versions, upgrade to Progenesis LC‑MS v4.1 to gain this and many other benefits [pdf]
- Progenesis CoMet
Download the AB SCIEX WIFF plugin for Progenesis CoMet v2.0
For earlier versions, upgrade to Progenesis CoMet v2.0 to gain this and many other benefits [pdf]
We’ve also released two brand new peptide search engine plugins for Progenesis LC‑MS, and made improvements to another:
- ProteinPilot search plugin (LC-MS)
Provides support for importing search results produced by analysing WIFF files in ProteinPilot.
- EasyProt search plugin (LC-MS)
Provides support for importing search results generated by EasyProt.
- Scaffold search plugin (LC-MS)
Improved support for experiments that have been analysed using SEQUEST.
So, if you’d like to see support for a data format, search engine or inclusion list format that we don’t currently support, please contact us to discuss your needs and we’ll see how we can help.
