Does Clarity support Calibration Bracketing?
Yes, Calibration Bracketing is supported directly in Clarity since version 3.0.
What is bracketing?
The bracketing in calibration is a technique, when samples in a long sequence run are evaluated to standards immediately preceding and immediately following the respective samples. It is used to compensate for instability of detector response during the run, for example typical for electrochemical detectors.
Bracketing in Clarity 3.0 and later
1. In the Method Setup - Calculation, set the name for cloned calibration files used during the Calibration Bracketing.
The field enables the use of any text, however it is recommended to use variables appropriate to the calibration method (Line, Date and Time, ...) (1).
2. In the Sequence - Sequence Options, check the Calibration Bracketing option.
This sets the sequence and calibration to the Calibration Bracketing mode (2). As every unknown sample series is demarcated by calibration standards and as such uses a single calibration file, calibration will be cloned from the previous calibration clone whenever an unknown sample or blank follows the calibration standard. In a newly cloned calibration file, all responses other than responses of the last series of calibration standards (only those standards that follow the unknown samples) are cleared.
