In TraceFinder 3.0, you will find that we have changed the Graphical User Interface quite a bit. Other than changing some of the colors and the navigation style we have also added elements to help review data in a way that can be tailored.
A concept that came across to our team was to help tell the story of the data. This is what TraceFinder was intended to do from its concept. We realized that many scientist that will use this and related products will not be “CLASSICAL” mass spec people. Young new chemist or other scientist not use to mass spec data moving into the lab need to be able to see what they need to know about the data and have a feel on what works best for them. At the end of the day they are telling the story of the data to their customers.
Our concept is to give you the ability to choose what you want to see and how you want to see it.
In forthcoming releases you will have the ability to “Read the Cliff Notes” of the data or the other end of the spectrum of reading “War and Peace,” if you so choose. We don’t want to limit the data or have the data be so overwhelming it can’t make sense.
So in this video we will show you how to navigate in the Compound and Sample Views which are just different ideas on how to look at the data. Also how to arrange the views so it makes sense, or makes it easier to read through the data.
A big plus is the ability to filter out data you don’t care to see or only data you are interested in.
All this and the views are remembered automatically when a User signs out or closes the application.
Although the video only takes place on one screen. Any part of the data review section is a dockable panel so you can have parts on multiple monitors and they will remain synced. I personally use a three monitor setup and have a multipeak panel on one, a detailed view on another and my data review grid on my main display.
Remember we can only make it better if we hear back from you so, please send in your ideas, comments or questions. The video is a little longer than my 2 minute rule but it should explain a lot of the NEW ELEMENTS and their functions.
If the video is blurry please click the cog wheel at the bottom of the panel and increase the video display resolution.
