GC-LC Concordance software for the automatic comparisons of complex chromatograms with the automatic compensation of the retention time shifts by a neuronal treatment (up to 100 millions of calculations per comparison)

GENERAL

    • Compatibility: Windows NT, XP, VISTA, 7, 8, 10
    • User-friendly interface – only three screens to manage everything in QC mode: Settings, Data entry, Visualisation of the comparison + one PDF report
    • Only one more screen in Retention Index for the identification of a molecule or a raw material
    • Possibility to call GC-LC Concordance from an external software and vice versa

DATA ACQUISITION

    • Acquisition from any brands in the market (Agilent, PerkinElmer, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Waters, Shimadzu etc.)
    • Acquisition from any type of detectors in GC, LC, GC-MS (FID, MS, ECD, MPD, UV etc.)
    • Data acquisition from Servers

DATA ENTRY IN THE SAME SEQUENCE, IN RETENTION TIME OR RETENTION INDEX (KOVATS INDEX)

    • Fast entry of one or many samples and one or many and different control samples – up to 500 per sequence
    • Possibility to link control samples to coded samples automatically
    • Entry of one chromatogram to be compared to thousands of chromatograms on one line of a sequence (Applications: e-nose, counterfeiting, the origin of a product etc.)
    • Automatic creation of a sequence after the comparison of one to thousands of chromatograms
    • Entry of one or many different alkanes chromatograms in Retention Index mode in the same sequence (E.g. Polar and Non Polar)
    • Run the automatic comparison of one, many or all the lines of the sequence with one click

SETTINGS OF THE COMPARISONS OF COMPLEX CHROMATOGRAMS

    • Filters to remove background noise and saturated peaks
    • Customizable relative and absolute tolerances between the peaks area of the sample and the control sample
    • Thresholds of concentrations to control each peak following norms or specifications imposed by your clients
    • Possibility to work on the full chromatogram fingerprint or only a portion of it
    • Protection of the method of the sequence with a password

VISUAL COMPARISON OF COMPLEX CHROMATOGRAMS

    • One page to see in a graphic and in a table the results of the comparison between two chromatograms (missing peaks, out of tolerance etc.)
    • View all the peaks or only the peaks out of tolerance and missing in the table
    • Continuous zoom on the same page to better visualize any part of the comparison of the two chromatograms
    • Comment/add the name of the molecules of any peaks
    • Possibility to transfer all the information added to your control sample to a new control sample in two clicks
    • Possibility to add new peaks in a control sample (E.g. for the control of allergens etc.)
    • Possibility to substract a raw material in a mixture
    • Possibility to switch to manual mode to match up to 6 couple of peaks (for specific applications)
    • Possibility to mix many control samples into one averaged control sample
    • Possibility to memorize the profiles of two columns (for specific applications, E.g. RT realignment and creation of a new chromatogram with RT correction)
    • Possibility to enter a response factor for one or many groups of peaks
    • Possibility to enter specific concentrations (Quantification)

RETENTION INDEX OR KOVATS INDEX: ALL FEATURES ABOVE PLUS…

    • The automatic retention time conversion into retention index with a chromatogram of alkanes or any other indices reference (internal or external)
    • Add your own database of molecules and raw materials
    • Molecule identification with your own retention index database of molecules
    • Raw materials identification with your own retention index database of raw materials
    • Cross the identification with two databases for a precise identification (polar and non polar)
    • Cross the identification with the formulation of your product
    • Graphic identification of a raw material in a mixture with the estimated concentration of the raw material with one click
    • Automatic identification of each peak of your chromatogram with a database of RI (E.g. Allergens, DB, WAX…)

REPORT

    • Full report with all the peaks, or report with only the peaks out of tolerance and the missing peaks (with colors and signs to identify quicker)
    • One matching score between two chromatograms based on three different calculations
    • Report with QC and/or Norm information
    • Presence of the personalized threshold on each peak of the chromatograms
    • Export of the data in the report into a CSV file (Excel…)
    • Possibility to create a new chromatogram with the corrected retention time.
