In this week’s tip, I thought it would be timely to answer a question I recently received that pertains to data security for chromatography systems: Restricting access to Empower Software and Empower projects.
What if we have specific criteria that must be met for our samples to pass chromatographic analysis? How can we use Empower Software to evaluate whether the sample meets these criteria? See how to do it using Custom Fields.
Waters’ legacy of purposeful innovation continues with the recently introduced RenataDX Screening System, a flow-injection tandem mass spectrometry system for high-throughput analysis of extracted dried blood spots and other physiological matrices.
How to modify a Custom Field in Empower Software that applies to specific samples and/or specific peaks.
Learn about Result Custom Field in Empower CDS, a user-defined calculation pertaining to all of the peaks in the chromatogram and, as a result, produces one result for the entire chromatogram. Today we will create a Result Custom Field to calculate the average peak width of the peaks in our chromatogram. This information is helpful when creating or fine-tuning a processing method.
Newborn screening for inherited metabolic disorders dates to the early 1960s when Dr. Robert Guthrie in Buffalo, New York developed the first screening test for phenylketonuria (or PKU), a metabolic disease in which patients can’t metabolize the amino acid phenylalanine.
How to modify a Custom Field in Empower Software.
Opening this week in Singapore is a new resource for scientists in the challenging position of needing analytical insights as part of their food and water research, but who lack access to state-of-the-art instrumentation … we’re so excited we wanted to share a preview!
As we continue to demonstrate ways to use Custom Fields in Empower, see how to copy a Custom Field from one Project to another.
Mass spectrometry has been game changer in newborn screening because rather than having a single test for a single condition, there was now a technique that provided a single test for a large number of different conditions.
