File structure

Application files

Application files

Files within a database

File sharing

Files are saved locally or within a database. Each instance of the application can access those files.

Files are saved locally. Under Security Pack the files are protected by Windows Security settings.

As the files are always in a database, they must be exported and imported to be shared.

Method saving

A method can be created or saved from a batch file that contains data.

Concentration calibration curves can be saved as methods.

Methods contain only the analytical parameters.

Standards can be saved separately as .std files.

Automation tables can be saved separately also.

Saving a method switches to the method file created from v1,1. Concentration curves can be saved as methods after they are measured.

File import

Can import .csv data
