AMDIS — Setting Up and Running a Deconvolution and Target Analysis: Part 3

by Gary Mallard and O. David Sparkman

In the first two parts of the discussion of setting up AMDIS the basics of running an analysis with retention index filtering as well as a simple analysis were discussed. In this final part of the set up...

AMDIS – Setting Up and Running a Deconvolution and Target Analysis – Part 2

by Gary Mallard and O. David Sparkman

In the last part of this AMDIS discussion, the setting up and running of a simple analysis was discussed. However, to take full advantage of AMDIS it is far better to make use not only of the mass spectral...

AMDIS: Setting Up and Running a Deconvolution and Target Analysis – Part 1

by Gary Mallard and O. David Sparkman

AMDIS is designed to do analysis for target compounds in a GC/MS data file. To do the analysis you need a completed data file (AMDIS reads most current and many older instrument formats as well as standard...

AMDIS – An Introduction to Extracting High-Quality Spectra from Complex GC/MS Data

by Gary Mallard and O. David Sparkman

The identification of components by GC/MS in complex mixtures has essentially two parts – extracting a spectrum that is due to a single component and then identifying the component, usually through a library...
