Can LCQuan and TraceFinder Co-exist

In a word, Yes.

Well, to be a little more detailed. TF 2.0 and above can be installed on the same PC, but they have to be versions that are supported by the same Thermo Foundation base application. So LCQuan 2.7 is the needed version, today.

If you have the QuickCalc application, you can export the method out to a .pmd file then import into TF.

That export though does reset the retention time to 1.0 minutes so they will have to be reset in TF or you can reset the RT in Xcalibur.

You can also export the Sequence to a .sld file that can be imported into TF, if you want to look your already acquired data in TF for comparison.

Then you can simply  right click in the Batch View Grid, browse to the data and and map raw files to samples. This will copy the files into the Tf directory and set the file references.

Then just submit the batch for Processing.

If you want to use a report much like the Long and Short Summary, use the TF Custom Report: Xcalibur Style Summary Report, that is located not he Custom Reports Template page.
