MassWorks Rx GC/ID

New Version 4.0!

“GC/ID is the first major breakthrough in GC/MS in decades”

GC/ID is fully automated data processing software that provides dramatic improvements for GC/MS qualitative analysis. By incorporating Cerno’s proven TrueCal™ calibration technology for accurate mass formula ID along with conventional library search, a significant improvement in compound ID certainty is achieved on single quad GC/MS systems.

GC/ID also provides, for the first time, an entirely automated method of quantitatively utilizing the NIST, Wiley or user generated retention index values to provide yet a third orthogonal metric for compound ID.  The groundbreaking Auto RI allows you to automatically calibrate your GC for retention index without the need for standards!

GC/ID uses a powerful new approach to identify and deconvolve mixtures and the background of co-eluting peaks and, new for V4, adds a remarkable improvement to deconvolve peaks when there is not enough retention time separation between co-eluting compounds, for which all other conventional deconvolution approaches will fail!

  • Forward and reverse search using the industry standard NIST search engine
  • Accurate Mass with Spectral Accuracy for formula ID of molecular ions and/or Fragments
  • The most advanced deconvolution of Co-eluting Peaks (TrueChrom MX™)
  • Additional SMD deconvolution for peaks that co-elute to close for conventional deconvolution.
  • Retention Index Match using RI standards or Auto RI™ for generating RI match without standards
  • Auto RI™ for generating RI match with no standards
  • Magic Highlighter™ color codes problem IDs visually to speed analyst reviews
  • Conveniently processes legacy centroid data with deconvolution and RI validation
  • Semi-Quant, a simple but smart Semi-Quantitative analysis tool
  • Build custom Libraries directly from GC/ID
  • Fully Automatic whole Run or Full Sequence Processing and Report Generation


GC/ID is built on the powerful Massworks Rx configurable platform so it can be easily adapted to your specific needs.

Version 5.0 Released!

New Features for Version 4.0

Version 4.0 brings a host of new capabilities and improvements including:

  • New, Patented Search Mixture Deconvolution (SMD) allows deconvolution of peaks previously impossible to deconvolute due to the retention time too close or even at exactly the same time
  • New CPS library search for fast, unfiltered search in support of SMD
  • New mixture labeling for SMD and normal deconvolution
  • New Peak Pick tuning page
  • Import CPS libraries from NIST format
  • Optional install of Agilent MassHunter and OpenLab file readers
  • Many new UI enhancements

And much more, for a detailed description see GC/ID 4.0 brochure.
