Isotope Pattern Scoring in TF 3.1 – Answer to “Ask A Guru” Question
Below is an excerpt from the online help in TF 3.1.
A few questions have come up on how we calculate the isotope pattern score and visualization.
Here is the answer directly from the online documentation. Remember we do have comprehensive manuals and help under the Help Menu.

New TF 3.0 Targeted Screening Workflow in Data Review (or the marriage of TF and ExactFinder)
A new feature to TraceFinder 3.0 is targeted screening. The workflow and method setup that were included in ExactFinder has been included in TraceFinder 3.0. Though it has been expanded to support Nominal Mass as well as HRAM.
That means this feature will work for all mass spectrometers from the GC single quads to the Q-Exactive.
Though some sections are more geared for HRAM, they can just not be used when using nominal mass data.
The other aspect is that TF gives you the ability to acquire, process and report on the fly during acquisition. Therefore, if you so choose you don’t have to wait to review your data. So this expands the capabilities that was introduced in ExactFinder.
This is our first step with this functionality and more is to come in following releases, but there are some interesting things that can be done by having these two workflows combined.
Again the video is a little longer that my 2 minute rule but there is a lot to look forward to.

Sneak Peek – Targeted Screening
As Always the TF team is looking forward and addressing market driven issues.
One thing that has become highly vocal in the applied markets is the ability to screen for target molecules, and then quantitatate on the positive hits.
So in a forth coming release, TF has incorporated the ExactFinder Screening workflow into its core set of capabilities.
We’ve expanded on this, to include nominal mass instruments, as well as, the high resolution accurate mass systems. This will allow for us to screen utilize screening from the single quandrupoles all the way to up to the QExactive.
So below is a shot of the new screening data review, and you can get an idea of the new UI style adopted by Thermo Scientific.
We still will have the same quan workflow, but have added acquistion and realtime reporting to ExactFinder screening workflow.
