TraceFinder 3.2 – New Instrument Method Managed Location
In previous versions of TraceFinder, the Instrument Method utilized for data collection was required to belong in the c:/Xcalibur/Methods directory folder.
In TraceFinder 3.2, the new location for the Instrument Methods is located under the C:/TraceFinderData/Instrument Methods directory folder.
Since TF has is a “managed systems”, meaning that we provide the unique capability of synced updates and other functions the Instrument Method, we have a need to know where the method is at all times.
Therefore, the use of the managed directory is a requirement. By moving the Instrument Method for TraceFinder into it’s unique folder, it allows you the freedom to use any folder for method development purposes.
When you have the final version for use in data collection simply save the “.meth” file into the C:\TraceFinderData\Instrument Methods directory folder, so that it will be used as a template for all the sample sets going forward.
