The Use of Resample to Improve Data Processing for GCxGC-TOFMS

Resample is a new ChromaTOF feature that adds flexibility to GCxGC-TOFMS data processing. New files can be created that reflect sample rate reductions, restricted retention time regions, and narrower mass ranges. The resulting smaller file sizes speed up automated processing routines. In addition, spectral deconvolution may be better due to elimination of low or high m/z matrix ions. When Resample is used to match peak widths properly to acquisition rates through the sample rate reduction, a sensitivity enhancement can occur. No matter how Resample is used, the original data file is still intact.
