The LAV is the prime software platform for viewing and processing measurement data acquired by ion mobility spectrometers (IMS) or gas chromatograph-ion mobility spectrometry (GC-IMS) couplings. It offers several user friendly advantages:
Available Plug-insIn addition to the functionalities of the LAV G.A.S. has developed application related/customized plug-ins. These useful data analysis tools support analysts to compare entire chromatograms with respect to 1, 2- or even 3-dimensional data representations and are powerful tools for determining and evaluating signal patterns. Beyond that they facilitate identifying specific marker compounds or different amount of the same present substances within different samples and enable a comprehensible graphical representation of the result. The 'Reporter' plug-in is a very useful tool for re/-presentation, combination and analysis of GC-IMS data to quickly visualize entire chromatograms, compare them with or even substract them from each other to visualize difference in a second. The 'Gallery Plot' cuts out selected compound peaks within chromatograms and allows to compare their intensities in bigger datasets in order to visualize similarities or differences in the fingerprint of samples, show in- or compound decrease over time or rather variations in intensities.
