Calibration Model Wizard - Step 1 - General information

Step 1 offers the general information setup of the new calibration. The new calibration needs to be named and a description should be entered. Ideally the name should briefly describe the type of calibration and the calibration model or algorithm used. The calibration will be referred to by this name throughout the software. Additionally more detailed information can be entered into the description field. This will help you later on to identify the calibration from a list of calibrations in the Quantify explorer.

Where can I review this description later on?

A summary of important information on a calibration can be reviewed in the properties tab after the calibration has been finished. Just select the calibration node in the quantify explorer and you will see the summarized information in the properties tab.


Step 1 shows the following dialog:

Calibration Model Name

Enter a unique name for the calibration here. This name will be displayed as a reference on reports and is also used in the software to address the calibration. Suitable names include the model and a description of the calibrated property as shown in the following example:

  • Intensity-1745-Protein
    Denotes a Intensity calibration for the property Protein at 1745 nm.

  • Ratio-1745(1807)-Protein
    Denotes a Intensity ratio calibration for the property Protein where the intensity at 1745 nm is divided by the intensity at 1807 nm.


The description text field might be filled optionally with additional sample information being important to the user. It might contain e.g. details on sample preparation, applicable concentration ranges for the calibration, procedure for preparation of reference concentrations, etc.

How can I add multiple lines in the Description field?

When adding text in multiple lines to the description field, the lines can be separated by CTRL-RETURN keys. Simply pushing RETURN-key does not work (this will trigger the Next-button).


Just click the Next > button to proceed to the next step.

Clicking the Cancel button will abort creating a new calibration.
