Tip #173: Question: How do you get Empower to Summarize Custom Fields after manually integrating and identifying a peak within a Result Set?

Welcome back to Get Empowered! In the last Empower tip-of-the-week post for Empower Chromatography Data Software, we learned how to use view filters in the Message Center, Configuration Manager and Global Project View (Tip #172).

 

 

In this week’s tip, I am going to answer a great question I received from an Empower user.

Q: How do you get Empower to Summarize Custom Fields after manually integrating
and identifying a peak within a Result Set?

A: Great Question. Let’s see how it is done.

Step 1

Below is a Result Set with an Intersample Custom Field containing a summary function which calculates the %RSD for peak areas. (figure 1)

Step 2

In one of the results, manually integrate the last peak and Click the ‘Quantitate’ tool to quantitate using the new peak area. From the File menu, Select ‘Save’ > ‘Result’ and exit out of Review. (figure 2)

Step 3

Go to ‘Alter Sample’ and change the Processing column to ‘Don’t Process or Report’ for all lines except for the ‘Summarize Custom Fields’ line. Leave that at ‘Normal’, Save all changes and exit out of Alter Sample. (figure 3)

Step 4

Right click on the ‘Result Sets’ and select ‘Process’. (figure 4)
