1 Ion Signature Technology, Inc. Ion Signature (IST) is the leader in deconvolution for mass spectrometry. We develop and market software for laboratories that demand accurate and highly productive chemical analysis using mass spectrometry. Our products reduce the time required to prepare and analyze complex chemical samples and interpret the data resulting in improved economics for the user.
2 EPA Testimonial EPA Quote: Software Performance Information The Ion Signature Software is capable of identifying low concentrations of target analytes in the presence of high levels of matrix interferences. By seeing through the matrix interferences, the software reduces the need for sample re-analysis and dilution, and increases confidence in surrogate, internal standard, and target compound identification and quantification.

3 Technology - Concept and Benefits Complex samples contain many components which overlap, thus producing complexity IST software is able to untangle these multiple components. The software accurately calculates and displays each individual component Deconvolution: a mathematical technique for quickly and accurately extracting the equivalent of clean spectral data from background noise, matrix interferences or co-eluting compound peaks. Conceptually, deconvolution is similar to simultaneously solving ten or more jigsaw puzzles after putting all of the pieces in one box Broadly used in speech recognition, telephone processing equipment, and analytical instrumentation Can be applied to any narrow band, time correlated data. Line spectra are best Mass Spectral Data is a perfect candidate for deconvolution
4 IST Software The Unique proprietary deconvolution algorithms allow the Ion Signature software to: Dramatically shortens runtime Productivity:10 – 100 fold Improvement Sensitivity:10 fold improvement Current products provide unmatched: AccuracyPrecision SelectivitySensitivity Speed Improve data quality reduces Re-analysis rates:reduced by 50% Data review time:reduced by 75% Sample prep time:reduced by 50% Based on proprietary data analysis algorithms The value of our products centers on recognizing chemical entities that improve people's lives or threaten their security in seconds, not minutes or hours.
5 Market-Product Industry leading quantitative deconvolution software for mass spectrometry Precise, rapid target compound identification and quantification Unique set of advanced deconvolution algorithms that out-perform the competition Extract the qualifier ions for each target compound Deconvolve the signal from all noise, matrix and co-elution contributions Identify, integrate and report the compounds found The industrys most powerful tool for untangling mass spectra
6 Markets-Multiple Applications Petrochemicals- petrochemical composition, fingerprinting Chemicals – QA/QC, R&D, brand equity Environmental – air, water, soil analyses Flavor and Fragrance – flavors and aromatics Food and Beverage – flavors, colorings in food and drinks Forensic- trace evidence in criminal investigations Toxicology – drugs and poisons Life Science –pharmaceuticals, drug discovery Homeland Security-explosives, warfare agents analyses The above applications may be grouped into three different equipment markets: The Laboratory Instrument Market The Portable Instrument Market The On-Site, In-Situ Probe Market
8 Markets - Trends in Analytical Procedures Trends in analyses common to all applications: Faster and faster analysis methods Increase measurement sensitivity Increase productivity Reduce labor costs Identification of target and unknown compounds Application specific libraries Taking the analytical capability closer to the site The analytical tool is measured by R.O.I.
9 Markets Served Dramatically reduce costly re-analysis rates Cut data review times by 75% Replace long, complex, multi-tiered analysis times with extremely short, simple ones Virtually eliminate arduous sample preparation Revenue gains > 10% for the user Increased profit margins All while maintaining or improving data accuracy! For Independent Testing Labs; the Key Is Throughput 45 minutes vs. 5 minutes – equivalent data quality
10 EPA Confirmation of Results
11 Markets Served For R & D and Manufacturing Support Labs, the Emphasis Is on Accuracy Accurately identify target compounds: In complex matrices Obscured by co-eluting peaks Under Fast GC conditions While maintaining the industrys: Lowest method detection limits Highest repeatability Fastest time to analysis And then handle tentative identification of unknowns!
12 Challenges Faced by Labs Today Interpreting mass spectra in the presence of high noise levels is one of the biggest challenges faced by labs.
