Data Analysis

  • Open Enhanced Data Analysis (ChemStation) from the desktop
  • Mouse Actions
    • Left button zoom, Double click with left resets view
    • Right button action

Open File

  • Open a file
    • Or if your file is running, take a snapshot of the file and you can analyze that while the run is still going

Looking at your data=

  • To get an ion chromatogram for a peak: Draw Rt. button over part of the peak to get the ion chromatogram. Only the width of the box matters in terms of which ions will appear in the ion chromatogram
  • To identify compounds in the ion chromatogram: Right button double click on the ion chromatogram to have Chemstation try to identify the compounds. This will turn up a list of possible matches. Need to go through each peak an look @ a list of possible candidates.

Notes from doing this with Yanfen

Open Chemstation From menu--> chromatograms--> Extract ion chromatograms Use data from standard run (Yanfen said she'd send us Bo's data. This is a confirmation of the data from the table in the paper listing unique ions for each compound, std data does specify retention times) Put in time range and unique ions into form --> get mid point of peak at retention time to get average intensity (rt click drag box) --> of peaks in the ion chromatogram use the higher intensity peak usually the M-57. ex) for Ser use 390 not 432

Internal standard +4 all labeled C + 1 N labeled. --> normalized peak intensity to this

Look for N+3 --> 393 instead of 390.

Example Ser ion chromatogram 447 --> M-15 (loss of Ch4) 432 --> 390 M-57 highest abundance

Select peak --> go ion spectrum --> right double click
