iMONdb

iMonDB (Instrument MONitoring DataBase) is a unique tool and resource for online, longitudinal quality control monitoring of mass spectrometry instruments and the data they produce. The advantage of instrument information at the lowest level is the high sensitivity to detect emerging defects in a timely fashion. To this end, iMonDB allows to automatically extract, store, and manage the instrument parameters from raw-data objects into a highly efficient database structure. iMONdb was developed at the University of Antwerp, the manuscript can be accessed here.
