To import targeted mass spectrometry data, first create the appropriate type of Panorama folder
for the work you will be doing.
- Click the Data Pipeline tab.
- Click Process and Import Data.
- Drag the files or directories into the web part. The upload will begin.
- If files are being zipped during upload, the upload progress window will inform the user that it is zipping files.
Zip Files on Upload
Certain file formats and directory layouts used by different instrument vendors can be zipped upon upload to reduce overhead. See the list of recognized patterns below
. When you upload a directory or collection of directories that match known mass spectrometry patterns, the files will be zipped. Files or directories that do not match the known patterns will be uploaded as usual.
In either case, the progress message will inform the user of the action and status. After the successful upload, the files and/or archives will be available in the file browser.
Browser support: Chrome provides the best performance for zipping upon upload. Edge is not supported.

The following patterns used by these instrument vendors are supported:
- Waters: A directory with the extension '.raw' containing at least one file matching the pattern '_FUNC*.DAT', e.g. _FUNC001.DAT
