Symbion Systems has introduced the EDX Experiment Design and Execution Module. The new module automates the process of spectroscopic data collection and chemometric model development. It allows spectra to be collected using Symbion LX, DX or RX and transferred directly to Symbion QT chemometrics without the need for duplicate manual data entry. During collection, the user can add any number of variables, create a spreadsheet of component values and annotate a memo block for each spectrum. All of this information is transferred intact to Symbion QT to facilitate the building of any number of multivariate calibrations. On deployment, EDX allows the user to add multiple trends based on calculations such as peak height, peak ratio or integral as well as chemometric predictions.
