Software Features

Most PeakSimple functions are launched from the chromatogram window, and are so user friendly that most operators can produce results almost immediately. ToolTips makes learning your way around PeakSimple even easier—just hold your mouse cursor over any icon or checkbox to read the onscreen How-To instructions

3D Multiple Chromatogram Display

Right-click in any channel window to load its data into the 3D display feature. Click on the 3D icon to display multiple chromatogram traces in orthographic or perspective renditions, with Auto-scaling and Zoom. Add, delete, and arrange the displayed chromatograms using the buttons in the 3D display window.
 3D Multiple Chromatogram Display
The point of view may be placed anywhere on an imaginary sphere around the data, using the click-and-drag interface—almost like flying around the data in a helicopter. Grab the 3D display with your mouse and spin it around in real time.

Manual Integration

Manual Integration tools allow the user to refine the inegration method applied to any peak. Baseline projection may be "rubber-banded" from point to point, forced to a valley, dropped vertically, skimmed, etc. The example below shows the use of the "Drop" tool to drop a vertical line from the valley of these two peaks to the baseline.

Click & Drag Retention Windows

Retention window brackets are visible onscreen and may be grabbed and dragged onto a peak, widened, or narrowed with the mouse. The component table is automatically updated when a retention window is graphically modified.

Control Files

Save any changes you make in an analysis to a control file and use it again and again for method reproducibility. Control files contain temperature or gradient programming, component external events, channel details, integration, postrun actions, and more! Create a control file for each method you typically perform. The number of control files you can have is limited only by your disk space.

Channel Details

Operators can set channel parameters for each channel via the Channel details dialog box. Set the sampling rate and default display limits; choose temperature, pressure, or gradient control; subtract the baseline from another channel; turn Data logger mode ON or OFF; designate a start time to compensate for relative retention shifts, and more.

Temperature, Carrier Pressunge & HPLC Gradient Programming

Program one or two SRI GC column ovens from ambient to 400oC with unlimited ramps and holds, 0.01 degree resolution, and negative programming.

Program the carrier gas pressure with unlimited ramps and holds on SRI GCs equipped with electronic pressure control (EPC). Form binary HPLC gradients using SRI's Model 210D HPLC system.

Manual / Automatic External Event Control

In addition to performing timed integration events, control up to eight external contact closure relay outputs to actuate sampling devices, autosamplers, solenoids, pumps, or any external device using TTL or relay contact closure triggers.

Components

Create, save, and edit component tables with an unlimited number of compounds. Enter expected retention times, control peak display, and more! Component details may be viewed and edited by double-clicking on any retention window in the chromatogram, or by double-clicking on any component in the list.

Zoom two ways

Click and drag the mouse cursor to draw a rectangle around an area you wish to enlarge, and that area will expand to fill the chromatogram window. This may be done multiple times. Clicking on the unzoom icon in the toolbar unzooms the view one level at a time, until it returns to the original resolution.
A click on another icon increases the display limits by a factor of two, vertically shrinking the peaks.

Overlay Chromatograms

Overlay the data in any channel onto any other channel for retention time comparison or multiple detector correlation. The Overlay Adjust feature lets you shift and stretch overlaid data for pattern matching.

Baseline Subtraction & Data Smoothing

Blank baseline subtraction is useful to compensate for baseline drifting due to column bleed and temperature ramping. PeakSimple lets you subtract baselines in real time as data is collected, or post run.
Noisy detector signals can be smoothed manually or automatically at the end of a run. Smoothing algorithms include Olympian, Moving Average, and Savitsky-Golay.

Calibration

Multilevel Calibration Curves

Calibrate peaks six ways (multi-line, quadratic, parabolic, etc.) using single or averaged data at up to seven concentration levels. Statistics for evaluating line fit quality, modification date audit trail, and curve printout help to ensure defensible results.

Calibration Averaging

PeakSimple allows up to three replicate calibration standards at seven levels of concentration to be averaged when constructing calibration curves.

Dynamic Data Exchange

Link PeakSimple to your DDE compatible spreadsheet or word processor (Excel, Word, etc.). Analytical results are automatically transferred after every run, or may be accumulated within PeakSimple and copied as a block of data. Ust the Copy Picture option to paste the chromatogram itself into Excel along with the results.

Merge Results from Multiple Channels

PeakSimple lets you merge the results from any or all channels into one report. This feature is useful for combining results from different detectors for export into Excel, etc.

Self Validating Hardware

PeakSimple will play back and re-acquire any chromatogram multiple times, establishing the precision and accuracy of the data system using real data, not "canned" chromatograms. PeakSimple's validation can be performed by the user anytime, without extra hardware.

Autosampler Queue & Batch Processing

Create customized autosampler sequences—for liquid injections, purge and trap autosamplers, gas sampling valves, and stream selectors—including unique, predefined sample information, auto-calibration, and batch reprocessing of previously run samples.

Data Logger Mode

PeakSimple's Data Logger Mode allows you to display a scaled and calibrated result in large numbers instead of the usual strip chart data presentation. Data Logger Mode is especially useful when monitoring total hydrocarbons on one channel, while performing a separation on another channel.

Print Chromatograms in Color

Use any Windows supported color printer to create full-color renditions of your analytical data. Print multiple chromatograms per page for easy detector-to-detector comparisons and paperwork consolidation. Print overlaid data in contrasting colors with adjustable line weight.
