Calculating SRBR for .csv spectra

Hi Agilent Community,

I ran a factorial design to find optimal instrument (MP-AES) parameters for analyzing my samples and I would like to know what specific procedure/function is used to determine signal-to-root-background ratio when using the 'Optimize' function in MP Expert to determine optimal viewing position and nebulizer flow rate. 


I ask this as I had to run my samples as a normal run and collect the raw spectra as some of my chosen parameters included pump speed (which can only be varied for a specific run and not during optimization) and read time (which would have been using the 'Optimize' feature a little time-consuming as I have restricted lab access during the pandemic.

I understand that there are a few methods that can be used to determine SRBR however I would like to keep the values I determine consistent with what the MP-AES would output. 


Thank you!
