Chromatography software

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Chromatography software is software that collects and analyzes chromatographic results delivered by chromatography detectors.

Many chromatography software packages are provided by manufacturers, and many of them only provide a simple interface to acquire data. They also provide different tools to analyze this data.[citation needed]

The most common tool is "integration": It computes simple areas to delimit peaks by adding valleys automatically or not. Areas are computed between two valleys, a signal, and a baseline.[citation needed]

Applications are also available for simulation of chromatography, for example for teaching, demonstration, or for method development &/or optimization.

The following is a list of software and the (unexplained) tools that each provides:
