Mass++ is freeware for mass spectrometry analysis that can be downloaded from http://www.first-ms3d.jp/english/mass2
Mass++'s primary objectives are:
- To support a wide range of vendors' data file formats.
- To provide essential functionality for proteomics and metabolomics analysis.
- T be easily extendible using plug-in technology.
Mass++ was originally funded by CREST (Core Research for Evolutional Science and Technology) and developed by Eisai. During that time, all the basic functionality and support for a wide range of data formats was implemented - Shimadzu (LCMSsolution, GCMSsolution), Applied Biosystems (Analyst, AnalystQS), Thermo Fisher (XCalibur), Waters (MassLynx), mzXML/mzML and MSB (original format).
Mass++ is now funded by FIRST (Funding Program for World-Leading Innovative R&D on Science and Technology), and Mass++ 2.0.0 development was taken over by Shimadzu Corporation with continued support from Eisai.
