Instrument serial numbers are now available in MSDataFileImpl (when they are present in the raw data) for AB/Sciex WIFF, Agilent MassHunter, Bruker BAF/TDF, and Thermo RAW.
Shimadzu LCD, Sciex WIFF2, Waters RAW, and Waters UNIFI do not appear to store serial number in the raw data (just like Waters RAW doesn't store the exact instrument model used!). I might be wrong about WIFF2, but the few test files I have only give a blank value for serial number.
Brendan, I'm reassigning to you for triage to get the values to Panorama. I will contact Shimadzu, Waters, and Sciex about getting serial numbers (or at least some unique value for the instrument).
