The Modular ICR Data Acquisition and analysis System (MIDAS) was developed for FT-ICR data stations. Experiments were performed on a homebuilt FT-ICR instrument based on an unshielded 7 T Oxford magnet. Analytes were separated by nano-LC, ionized by micro-ESI and accumulated in a modified octopole. The original VXI timing cards controlled the experimental timing. Mass resolving power for the displayed peptides was ∼ 20,000 and signal to noise ranges from 200 to 400. Results show that the signal to noise ratio for the more minor components is proportionally lower.
