There have been many request to ease the task of manual integration and other daily tasks in routine quantitation.
TF 3.3 utilizes the Swipe Integration and simple peak removal tools that were previously piloted in Comparative View. The data review elements have all been updated to give the review process a new look and feel. These updates allow for the data to be clearer and quicker for manual determinations.
As with Targeted Screening, TF 3.3 allows for the option to couple Unknown/Untargeted Screening with Quantitation to reveal components that were previously unknown for troubleshooting or determinations of new analytes, that need to be incorporated into future analysis. This feature is in the same previous workflows, but giving you the power to know more.
Targeted Screening has been a part of TF for several years now. However, in TraceFinder 3.3 the workflow has been coupled with Unknown/Untargeted Screening to allow the user quickly review chemical compounds that are thought to be present and to now include the ability to review components that are truly unknown. This allows the chemist to perform the same daily operations but know more than previously possible, in one simple workflow.
TraceFinder 3.3 allows you to create templates to easily perform redundant tasks of everyday lab life.
By creating a batch template a user simply selects the template, enters the unique sample information for unknown sample types and submit the samples. The templates can be made to perform Targeted, Unknown or a Combination of analysis, dependent on the users requirements.
See a video below of this simple process that’s been around in TraceFinder for several years but now includes Untargeted Analysis when the option is available.
At ASMS 2015 TraceFinder 3.3 will be released. Though there have been many small improvements to the general Targeted Analyte workflows, there is now an option to perform unknown analysis as a stand alone or in combination with targeted analysis. When coupled with targeted analysis the Known Analytes are automatically removed from the found chromatographic peaks in the Untargeted list.
Identification of found chromatographic peaks include the options for use of:
- Compound Databases used in targeted analysis
- Library Searches (Both NIST 2014 HRAM and Library Manager 2.0)
- Elemental Composition
- Chemspider Searches
Below is a quick video of the major data review screens that can be utilized in examining your data.
