New Features and Improvements in Version 2.9

GC Image GCxGC-HRMS Edition 2.9 has many new features and improvements. See the GC Image GCxGC-HRMS Edition Users' Guide for full documentation.

What's New in Version 2.9 Release 1 (July 2019)


Improved Smoothing for Baseline Correction

Version 2.9R1 has a new default filter type, Median-Mean, for the Default Baseline Correction algorithm and automated noise estimation. This new filter can handle a rapid changing baseline along Column I dimension better than the filter in older versions.

New and Improved Support for Manual Noise Estimation

Version 2.9R1 has a new feature, Recalculate Signal Noise, that allows users to recalculate noise after baseline correction. It supports estimating noises from individual strides and/or specified regions, and allows users to specify background regions manually if automated noise estimation was affected by some background artifacts. Also, the new operation provides three different ways to estimate noise, IID, Standard Deviation, and Peak-to-Peak, and can be added to a method for batch processing.

In addition,

Recalculate Signal Noise

New and Improved Features for Peak Detection

Version 2.9R1 has a new Detect Blob cursor mode for Local Blob Detection. The mode supports detecting a blob at the location indicated by the mouse double click or drag selection. If the location is not contained by existing blobs, the program will detect a blob at the location automatically. If the location is contained by some existing blob, the program will select the blob, and invoke Local Blob Detection to allow users to re-detect blobs within the blob area.
