Protea Analyser Software Protea Analyser Software (PAS) is Protea’s standard data acquisition and analysis package for laboratory and mobile field measurements of FTIR data.
As a data collection system, it has all the functionality required of research level FTIR analysis. The trained user can make changes can be made to collection parameters of the spectra, in order to achieve speed of response or detection limit requirements.
But also, running in the dedicated Standard Analysis mode, the un-trained user who is new to FTIR can quickly start collecting and measuring FTIR data. Standard Analysis mode has built in collection and analysis parameters as required when following standard procedures such as environmental emissions monitoring under the MCERTS framework.
As well as collecting FTIR data, PAS allows for connection to Protea’s sampling system control electronics. This monitors and controls sample cell temperature and pressure, provides control for purge valves to the instrument and also relays digital and analogue I/O to external devices.
PAS runs a dedicated calibration area, where users can add, remove and develop their own chemometric models (hyperlink to technology – chemometrics).
Models can be span corrected to match reference gas cylinders and linearity checks can be made for compliance with performance standards. When defining analysis methods, PAS also allows for model switching based on constants or other variables. For example, two chemometric models can be built over different ranges, one 0 -100ppm, one 100-1000ppm. PAS will automatically switch and use the most suitable model for the current concentration mix.
