Here "S" denotes smoothing filter, "B" denotes baseline correction method, "P" denotes peak finding criterion and "-" means smoothing or baseline correction method is not used. Cromwell, LIMPIC, LMS, CWT, and PROcess are designed for single spectrum peak detection. LCMS-2D, MapQuant, msInspect, mzMine, OpenMS and XCMS are designed for LC-MS (Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry) data analysis. PreMS is a GUI (Graphic User Interface) package based on Cromwell.
