Gears – QC Profiling

Automated LC-MS Quality Control of DNA Labeling Reactions

QC Profiling is a new brick or plugin of Mnova Gears. It has been designed as an automated solution for the quality control of reactions used to generate DNA Encoded Libraries for drug discovery.

You can input your worklist as a CSV file to evaluate a reaction, obtain the results and make a fast quality control with the simple color warnings system in Mnova Gears Viewer!
