Abstract

Major questions of all investigations of analytes using ion mobility spectrometer (IMS) are peak finding and in case of proper finding the reliable referencing. In case of rather complex mixtures like human breath or water impurities, automatic procedures should be found to support peak finding and referencing. A visualisation software tool will be described bringing the summarised results of peak finding methods and the reference lists used as input to data bases together in a single system. The details of the software developed are described briefly and the procedures behind are referenced.
