ReAdW: Thermo Xcalibur .raw files to mzXML converter




Command-line program to convert Xcalibur native acquisition (.RAW) files to mzXML. The program requires the XRawfile library from ThermoFinnigan. The XRawfile library is installed with the Xcalibur software suite; you must obtain this software from ThermoFinnigan.

Note: This program is no longer supported. Users are strongly urged to use the msconvert program released as part of the ProteoWizard package. For convenience the latest versions of TPP contain this program.

Current Version

ReAdW version 4.3.1 was released on September 9, 2009. The latest release can be always be found at the Sashimi SourceForge release page]


Because this program depends on Windows-only vendor libraries from Thermo, this code will only work under Windows with Thermo's XCalibur software installed.

Getting the software

This software is no longer included in the current TPP distribution.

Additional methods for obtaining the software are:

  • Download from SourceForge Sashimi project file release: [1]
