Why do people buy Progenesis QI when there is freeware available?

It’s an interesting question and there are many of our users out there with various answers. We decided to ask our users some questions about why they bought Progenesis QI and what difference it has made to their research. Here’s what Research Professor Jace W. Jones had to say on the matter: Please can you […]

6 ways Progenesis QI can help with your compound identification

One of the biggest challenges in metabolomics is compound identification – it’s a topic that comes up continually, and something at Nonlinear HQ that we’re constantly trying to help with. The recent releases of Progenesis QI have focussed on improving the process of compound identification, but do you know just how many tools are available […]

Barking up the right tree: characterising Garcinia buchananii extracts with Progenesis QI

It’s often said that plants are a rich source of dietary supplements, medicines, and other usefully bioactive phytochemicals. Among these, there are many traditional remedies derived from plants, but these often derive from a specific part of a plant, or historical means of preparation. How, then, to know if this is the best method of […]

Food for thought at RAFA 2015

Last week, I attended the 7th symposium on Recent Advances in Food Analysis with some of my colleagues from NLD and Waters. The congress was held in the beautiful city of Prague in the Czech Republic, famous for its old architecture and buildings like the astronomical clock, Charles Bridge and the castle. It was my […]

Big society for small molecules

Last week I was invited to attend Waters’ Metabolomics user meeting of 2015, held at their UK headquarters in Wilmslow, Cheshire. There was a great turnout, with a good variation in applications, from institutes all over the world. The meeting kicked off after lunch with an introductory talk from Ian Edwards (Waters UK), who gave […]

From bees or not from bees: that is the question!

Today’s post is a guest post, kindly provided by Dr Chris Buck, an LC-MS Field Support Specialist for Waters Australia. He’s recently had an article published in Chromatography Today, looking at food adulteration – specifically, at adulteration of honey products. Here, he presents an overview of some of the issues that article covered and how […]

5 key steps to peak picking that make Progenesis QI better

Nonlinear Dynamics were at MetSoc2015 this year, talking to attendees about our small molecule software Progenesis QI. One common confusion we discovered was our use of the term peak picking. In the minds of many, this simply refers to detecting MS peaks in profiled LC-MS data. In Progenesis QI, we use this term a lot […]

Progenesis QI and the iKnife: the cutting edge of food monitoring

Earlier this year at ASMS 2015, Waters previewed their Rapid Evaporative Ionisation Mass Spectrometry (“REIMS”) research system, incorporating the iKnife – an exciting new technology that’s already hitting the mainstream news headlines in the monitoring of food adulteration. Here at Nonlinear, we were incredibly proud to announce that Progenesis QI would provide the data analysis […]

Progenesis QI v2.1 – available to download now

Back in March, we released Progenesis QI v2.0 and we’re pleased to bring you the news that v2.1 is now available to download. This point release brings further improvements to the identification process as well as a couple of other exciting new features. What’s New? Improvements to ChemSpider functionality with the option to perform theoretical […]

MetSoc2015 – Bridging the gap between community and industry

At the end of June, I, along with some of my colleagues, headed across to San Francisco, CA, for Metabolomics 2015. This was my third time attending this conference so I was looking forward to seeing some old faces, as well as new ones. I was also curious to see whether the same hot topics […]
