Trends define the data extraction methods for the reaction. The main
trend is defined during the initial reaction setup in the reaction wizard
but trends can be still added/removed and edited later on in the reaction
window. All trends are displayed in the Trend View window, please refer to
this chapter for detailed description of trend display options.
The trend configuration dialog used for adding and editing of trends
looks like this:
The trend configuration dialog has the following components:
If a sample spectrum is available from a loaded or finished reaction
it will be displayed in this view to facilitate the trend configuration.
Lists all data extraction options for defining the trend. Along with
the spectral method such as Intensity, Peak Height, Peak Area etc. all
calibrations that are loaded in the Quantify
Explorer will be available. If
a calibration is missing, close the configuration dialog by clicking Cancel and
switch to the main application to load the calibration. After reopening
the configuration dialog the calibration will be available. Please review

are the general options such as the display name and the trend line color,
as well specific parameters concerning the data extraction. Numerical
values may be entered directly, or if applicable may be selected graphically
in the spectrum view. If a calibration is selected the full range of statistical
values are available for defining the trend. Please review the aforementioned
chapter for a detailed description.
