Description

This is an experimental release Рuse at your own risk. The software does not use the Analyst library to open *.wiff files and can therefore be installed on any coputer. Please utilize the forum to discuss questions about this software.

Wiff Files

The software can directly open files from the FlashQuant systems, without having Analyst installed on the same computer. A valid Wiff imaging data set consist of these three files: *.wiff, *.wiff (1).path and *.wiff.scan. Regular LCMS data will not have the path file and therefore cannot be opened as image.

Batch Mode

Use the batch mode to convert multiple images. Example: “C:\Program Files\MSImageView\MSImageView.exe” /batch /optwiff /saveas img /bitmap png %1
