IQ Checker report file *.iqc
High Duty Cycle (HDC) lookup table *.lue
Created from existing data using Driftscope. Used by MassLynx method files to determine which ions to apply HDC to in acquisitions.
Driftscope rule file *.rul
Created from existing data using Driftscope to define a subset of ions (for example, multiply charged ions). The rule file is then used in a MassLynx mobility method to acquire only the defined subset of ions.
Protein sequence *.fas Open amino acid sequence file format. Used by BioLynx and Protein Lynx.
Protein sequence *.fasta Open amino acid sequence file format. Used by BioLynx and Protein Lynx.
Molecule structure *.mol Open format for defining molecular structures. Used by MetaboLynx to draw chemical structures.
Protein sequence file *.psq Used by BioLynx > Pepseq for sequencing DDA data.
Oligonucleotide sequence *.oli Used by BioLynx for sequencing oligonucleotides.
Nucleotide Sequence *.nuc Used by BioLynx for sequencing nucleotides.
Carbohydrate sequence *.cbt Used by BioLynx for sequencing oligosaccharides.
Protein probe *.prp Used by ProteinLynx (not PLGS).
Text files (in MS method editor) *.txt Text files are used in DDA and PID methods to define include and exclude lists, charge state dependent collision energy ramps, and collision energy profiles.
Multiple reaction monitoring MSMS method *.mrm Mrm files are used to define the list of transitions to be monitored by the MRM acquisition method.
