TF 3.0 – Editing the peak detection parameters in Data Review

In the local method edits are automatically applied to the batch and reprocessing occurs.
In Data Review the ability to make multiple edits and apply to one compound peak instance, using the user editing selection is possible. Also you can make local method edits and then apply those changes in one click which combines the changes into one batch submission to the processing engine.

TF 3.0 – The Daily Technician Workflow – Point, Shoot and Read the report

Part of what makes TraceFinder a tool for the average chemist, is that complex experiments and processing can be setup once.

But then it can be used a thousand times, by technicians that just need to make samples and put them on the instruments to run.

Though there are many other things that can be done. Although, this isn’t an open access software, we have made it easy to just run your samples and get a report out on the fly that can go to a printer or to a pdf after each injection.

Please view the video below.

TF 3.0 – What is Intelligent Sequencing? ” A new/old feature to increase reliability”

Intelligent Sequencing Control

The figure on the below illustrates the wide range of operator-defined
settings that may be utilized to allow TraceFinder 3.0 intelligent sequencing
to make real-time decisions that prevent manual review and re-analysis
of suspect samples. Data review is done immediately following
acquisition, and any defined actions can take place automatically
without user intervention.

Intel seque

Each of the key sample types – calibrators, quality controls,
specimens, etc. have their own review settings that can be unique
to a particular sample type.

For example, if a quality control does
not meet required QA/QC limits, the calibration can be completely
resubmitted and re-analyzed, effectively restarting the entire batch,
while a specimen not meeting that same QA/QC limit may only be
targeted for re-injection.

In each sample type, data review steps and defined actions can
be specified for acceptance criteria on data quality as outlined in the
laborotory’s SOP. The settings for these checks are shown in
the figure on the above.

Intelligent sequencing options can also be set
for quantitative values, such as limits of detection, blank cleaniness,
and carry over. Actions may be defined as well for review
steps based on ion ratio acceptance.

The benefit of utilizing this feature is that batches of samples can be run in realtime
with on the spot rejections or cleaning steps. This eliminates the need to return the
next morning and rerun samples. If samples have a short shelf life then they are kept from
having to be remade or running out of sample. Therefor, increasing the efficiency of the
lab and reducing waste of time and material.

TraceFinder 3.0 has been officially released

I’m happy to announce that TF 3.0 has been release for general distribution.

TF 3.0 – How to add Adducts for use in the Compound Database

The video below shows how to edit the positive and negative adducts that can be used in the CDB.

The use of adducts becomes very useful in calcualtions of the exact masses for screening and high resolution quantitation.

This also helps in the screening qualitiy measurement of isotope confirmation and identification.
