The functional logic of the data system is divided into three broad
- Acquisition: The acquisition module is used for setting GC and MS
parameters, collection of data and the storage of data during collection.
With the exception of communications with an autosampler, most interactions
with the instrument hardware happen via the acquisition package.
- Data Analysis: The data analysis module is used for extracting, displaying
and printing data, library searching, quantitative calibration and
analysis, etc. The data analysis package can be used even if the instrument
hardware is offline.
- Sequencing: This module is used for automated multiple acquisitions
and data analysis.
