The Scanner Tool can be used to measure intensities and integrals across specified regions of all the dataset rows referenced in the table. Measurement is performed by selecting a region of the spectrum with the vertical crosshairs and choosing Measure from the Scanner Tool's Analyze menu. The exact measurement performed is based on settings in the Parameters tab. Measured values, stored in the table, can be analyzed using the integrated R scripting capability.
The measurment type is specified by the Mode setting and can be set to the following values.
A local baseline correction can be done based on the state of the Offset setting. A local correction is useful when the measured region is "riding" on a hump or other baseline distortion. The baseline can be calculated locally and subtracted without needing to apply a baseline correction to the entire spectrum. The following choices are available:
After the measurement is performed, the table is updated with the new measurment values. A new column is added to the table with a name that corresponds to the measurment type and region. For example, a column named V.0:max_2.531_2.405re indicates that the measured value is the maximum intensity in the region between 2.531 and 2.405 ppm and a local baseline correction was done based on the edges of the region. The V.0 prefix to the column name can be used as a the column name when referring to the table data using the R scripting interface. Each added column will begin with Vn:, where n is an index incremented for each new column (V0:,V1: etc.).
You can save the table at anytime using the File>Save Table... menu item. The measured values will be saved in the table. The table can be reloaded into NMRFx Processor or analyzed in some other software application.
