MASSTRANSIT MASSTransit by Palisade, Platform=Windows


NOTICE: MASSTransit is a legacy product. It generally works well, as it has over many years, but is no longer actively supported or updated by the developer. The software is provided "as is" for anyone who needs it. You may alternately consider GC/MS File Translator, although that does not support Shimadzu .qgd files and "library" formats (.L, .JCAMP, .LBR, .IDB, etc.).

MASSTransit: The Solution to GC/MS Data Translation

  • Convert GC/MS data and library between different native manufacturer formats
  • Standardize or consolidate data within a laboratory
  • Share data between data systems
  • Use older instruments with newer data systems
  • A command-line interface for batch-mode operation is also included.

Your Agilent ChemStation doesn't speak to your Varian Saturn? It will with MASSTransit, which translates gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) data and library files between formats used on OEM data systems. MASSTransit performs conversion of a wide variety of instrument manufacturer formats including Agilent, Finnigan, Varian, PerkinElmer as well as most popular after-market data systems.

  • (1) Requires Xcalibur be installed on the same computer. Tested on Xcalibur 1.4. MSFileReader does not appear to work as a substitute for Xcalibur. Note: Xcalibur also includes a utility called "xconvert.exe", which can convert .raw files to/from .cdf (AIA/netCDF) format.
  • (2) Requires ws*.dll files from Varian Workstation. These can also be obtained from the freeware NIST AMDIS.
