Empower tip-of-the-week

#65: In this final tip in our Deriving Channels series for using Empower Software, we learn about Switch To, a function that you can use to combine data from channels generated by different wavelengths or detectors into one, so that you process a single chromatogram.

#62: In Empower Software, deriving a channel lets us mathematically combine two channels of data. What if we wanted to combine more than two channels? There’s a relatively new feature that lets us combine up to 10 channels of data, called Formula Based Derived Channel. Let’s see how it works.

#61: Learn how to derive a channel for Timed Mass for 3D MS data in Empower Software. Timed Mass creates a channel that specifies a mass at specified starting times, which can maximize sensitivity and allow us to perform quantification for all components regardless of the differences in mass.

#60. Another option for Deriving Channels in Empower when working with 3D MS data is Total Plot, a 2D chromatogram that plots the sum of all ion intensities acquired across a specified mass range at every time point. It is a subset of the TIC plot, which we covered in Tip 57.
