During the ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics, SCiLS released an alpha version of the software component SCiLS Cloud which allows to share MALDI imaging data together with results of statistical analysis in the web.

After computational analysis with SCiLS Lab, users have the ability to upload results to SCiLS Cloud. Data together with analysis results such as discriminative m/z-markers uncovered by comparative analysis or regions of interest resulting from spatial segmentation or from tissue classification can be shared with collaborators and viewed in a web browser.

An alpha version of SCiLS Cloud is available together with some example data sets at www.scils-cloud.de. We are looking forward to receiving your feedback.

Release and upload of own data is planned for fall 2016.

The following system requirements apply:

  • Our web-based application works in modern browsers as, e.g., Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.
  • Desktop or laptop computer are supported only. Mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets are not supported yet.
  • 3D-capable graphics card with minimal screen resolution 1680×1050.
