Hosting analysis software for Mass Spectrometry


Virtual Machines can be accessed using the Remote Desktop Connection. You can set up a connection with the VM address listed below and log in using your UoA credential. Please note that when working off-campus, you need to connect to VPN before you are able to access the VM. VPN instructions.

If you would like to access any of the following VMs for your mass spectrometry data analysis, please supply your UOA UPI (e.g., George001) to the corresponding contact person.


The detailed configurations on Remote desktop connecting, accessing local files and folders on Remote Desktop Session can be found here.

For the detailed configurations on mapping shared net drive to the VM (e.g. resmed), please follow the guide as follows: Mapping a shared folder video guide (Windows). Mapping a shared folder video guide (Mac). Written guide with screenshots (Windows).

If you want to have an internet connection inside the VM system, please do the configuration indicated in this link within the VM system. For the metabolomics VM (windows server based system), the user could follow the instruction here to configure the proxy.

We currently have several SIMCA 16 activation keys for UoA users under the Umetrics university license policy. Contact us to install this software on your computer.
