Alignment Software for Chromatography and Spectroscopy
LineUp 2.02 is an alignment utility for chromatographic and spectroscopic data. LineUp will process files in several data formats, including Agilent ChemStation chromatography systems (*.CH files), the AIA data interchange format for chromatography (*.CDF files), and ThermoGalactic's GRAMS spectroscopy software (*.SPC files). In addition, accessory files are included for automating the alignment process with ChemStation and for SSI's EZChrom Elite system.
Using a multivariate correlation method, LineUp will adjust a chromatogram's retention axis to more closely resemble that of a target. In doing so, LineUp can adjust for variations in column loading, column aging and changes in flow. The same approach can be applied to spectroscopic data, especially useful for corrections to Raman spectra.
By largely eliminating retention time variation, LineUp becomes an excellent partner with Infometrix' Pirouette pattern recognition methods and data visualization tools. Together, LineUp and Pirouette can automate the interpretation of chromatographic data. Please see the product specifications for more details.
