Can the Waters Compression/Noise Reduction/Archiving tool SCN 968 process files containing data from optical detectors? - WKB16312

Article number: 16312


  • MassLynx
  • SCN 968 (Waters Compression, Noise Removal, and Archival Tool)
  • SYNAPT G2-S/G2-Si
  • Xevo G2-S
  • Xevo G2-XS
  • TUV
  • PDA



SCN 968 works only with continuum MS, MSe, HDMS, and HDMSe data (see release notes)

If you try to compress .raw folders containing TUV or PDA data, the optical data will be lost and will not be there when you decompress the data. The same is true for data from other non-MS detectors.


Other MS data types are not supported either. e.g. you cannot compress DDA, PID, or tof-MRM data using this tool.
