This option allows you to select portions of your data that satisfy up to three different criteria (e.g., where U238 is greater than 10000 counts per second). Because such criteria are independent of how your data were…

So what does Iolite do?

Iolite has been developed from scratch for processing mass spectrometer data. A key design concept has always been to make the programming as flexible and unrestrictive as possible, so even though it was originally designed for laser ablation data, it’s now been expanded to handle solution mode ICPMS analyses and even TIMS data.
