Shimadzu Partners with Cerno
COLUMBIA, Md., March 17, 2010 -- Shimadzu Scientific Instruments announced that it is partnering with Cerno Bioscience of Danbury, Conn., a company that applies mathematical techniques to mass spectrometry.
The companies will offer Shimadzu’s liquid chromatography mass spectrometry quadrupole systems along with Cerno’s MassWorks software to improve data calibration and provide more accurate mass determination. In conjunction with Shimadzu’s LCMSsolution software, the package utilizes Cerno’s patented MSIntegrity calibration technology to improve mass accuracy by up to 100 times, while enhancing spectral accuracy on unit mass resolution mass spectrometers.
With both companies' proprietary software, researchers can perform compound identification through elemental composition prediction — a capability usually available only on high-resolution systems at significantly higher cost.

- mass spectrometry
- An instrumental technique that utilizes the mass-to-charge ratio of charged particles as recorded from a mass spectrometer in order to determine the mass of a particle as well as the chemical makeup, or elemental ionic composition of a given sample or molecule.
