How can I load data from my Varian instrument?
PEAKS reads all PKL files produced from .trans files via the conversion tool embedded in the VarianMS software. The .trans type data (raw) is converted in Varian programs by clicking:
- “File” > “Save As”, then selecting the .pkl file format
- or by clicking “File” > right clicking “Export”, then selecting “.pkl”. If you are viewing a chromatogram with the Varian software, all the spectral data in the viewed chromatogram are converted to the .pkl format. If you are viewing a single spectrum and choose to convert the data, only the viewed spectra will be converted.
