ChromGraph is a sophisticated set of programs for the control of BASi instruments and the analysis of data generated by Liquid and Gas Chromatographs. The software runs in the Windows environment, thus providing all the flexibility and multitasking inherent in this operating system.
The data processing sections of ChromGraph (ChromGraph Report) include the following functions: peak identification, peak integration, comparison to internal and/or external standards, and report generation. Reports may be output to printer, disk, or to special files configured for easy manipulation by spreadsheet programs. Special features include automatic updating of standards and superb graphics.
ChromGraph REPORT may operate independently in a batch-process mode for already collected data, or it may be linked to its sister program, ChromGraph CONTROL, for linked processing of current data. Please refer to the OPERATION and DATA COLLECTION sections for detailed instructions on using CONTROL.
This manual is intended to be a simple introduction to REPORT. Where there are several paths to accomplish the same task, usually only one will be described. For example, many operations can be carried out either by clicking on a pushbutton with the mouse, or by selecting items from a menu with the keyboard. Only the mouse operations are described, to keep the manual as simple and undaunting as possible. Those who wish to explore other alternatives are encouraged to experiment, using the comprehensive Help screens and their knowledge of Windows.
Both ChromGraph REPORT and CONTROL run in the Windows operating system. Wherever possible, we have maintained the style of Windows in the look and feel of our software, including drop-down menus, list boxes, dialog boxes, radio buttons, etc. If you are already familiar with Windows, the transition to ChromGraph will be smooth. If Windows is new to you, we urge you to learn it first, using the tutorial provided with Windows.
