The QmixElements spectroscopy plugin is our solution for an optimal integration of Qmix Lambda spectrometer modules into the QmixElements software suite. This software lets you set parameters, such as integration time, filters, baseline correction, etc.). The integrated peak-detection feature automatically marks identified peaks in the spectrum. Recorded spectrums can be exported as images or in the form of many other file formats, such as Excel-compatible CSV files.
Automating and Synchronizing Recorded Spectrums
Like all other CETONI devices, Qmix Lambda spectrometer modules can be integrated into the QmixElements scripting system, using the respective script functions. This lets you automate the recording of spectral data, synchronize them with other devices or processes or trigger spectral recording in case of certain events. Simply drag and drop the spectroscopy function into your program and configure all of the necessary parameters using the graphical interface – and your automatic script-recording system is ready to go.
Conducting Online Analyses
The spectroscopy plugin contains a selection of analysis functions for online-analysis of recorded spectrums. You can create any number of analysis channels for each spectrometer. As an example, the integration function lets you calculate the intensity across the entire bandwidth of a spectrum, while simultaneously determining intensity at different wavelengths.
For each analysis a new analysis channel will be created in the I/O channel list. This channel works like a regular, analog input channel and you can use it and read it like any other analog input in the software and the script system.
The new Chemometrics Add-On, powered by Analyze IQ technology, brings sophisticated chemometric capabilities to the QmixElements software. Analyze IQ technology allows accurate analysis of spectroscopic data in realm time. Analyze IQ Lab software allows you to quickly and reliably create, evaluate and refine sophisticated models.
These models can then be imported into the QmixElements software for real-time analysis of recorded spectroscopy data. You simply create a chemometric analysis channel, assign an analysis model to the channel and then immediately have an analysis channel that continuously analyzes the recorded spectra. This allows you to detect the presence of a substance or its concentration in a mixture in real time, record it or react to it in the script.
Laboratory automation platform
The QmixElements software is a comprehensive, plugin-based, modular software solution for the control of all cetoni devices via a common graphical user interface. The software consists of a core that provides the basic features and services, such as the application window, the event log or the tool bar.
