Spectrolyzer P for LC-MS
Spectrolyzer for LC-MS is based on OpenMS software, and hence it is a complete preprocessing tool and does not require any other software like Matlab or R to help out with data processing.
Using Spectrolyzer, raw LC-MS data can be prepared for comprehensive statistical analysis, which in turn can result in the discovery of interesting peptides (biomarker candidates) by differentiating between different groups, e.g. patient samples and control samples.
The discovery of interesting peptides can be followed by database searches for protein identification using MS/MS data, with the help of either Mascot or X!Tandem

Spectrolyzer can perform all stages of processing required for analyzing large sets of LC-MS (HPLC-ESI MS, MS/MS) samples. For preprocessing Spectrolyzer enables performing signal processing, noise and baseline filtering, feature detection, map aligning and feature grouping. Thereafter, Spectrolyzer is able to perform different analyses, e.g. build diagnostic models, detect features for biomarker candidates, and perform protein identification.
Integration with Open MS software
In collaboration with Professor Knut Reinert (from Free University of Berlin) and Professor Oliver Kohlbacher (from Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen) we have combined our Spectrolyzer software for multivariate statistics with OpenMS — a C++ library for LC-MS data management and analysis.
Using Spectrolyzer, raw LC-MS data can be prepared for comprehensive statistical analysis. This includes various one- and multi-dimensional data exploration tools as well as advanced multivariate statistical methods. Special emphasis is given to methods supporting biomarker discovery.
