Calculating 2SD in iolite and Selection Matrices

A question that appears from time to time in iolite circles is how to report the 2SD instead of the default 2SE for each selection. This is something that we hope to automate in the future but, as is usually the case in iolite, the information is there, you just need to work out where…

We’re getting a lot of users that want to customise the way Iolite processes their data, which is really exciting as it’s exactly why we built Iolite in the way that we did. But we realise that there may be many more that just find getting into the programming code a little too intimidating, or…

How to add more globals to a DRS

This is just a quick tutorial to show you how to add more global variables or global strings to a DRS. These globals are useful because they’re acessible via the Edit Settings window, which means that people not comfortable with the code can quickly and easily view and modify them (e.g., the “ReferenceStandard” global string).…

Using splines in a DRS

In this post I’m going to give a description of how someone making or modifying a DRS can take advantage of the DRS support functions included in Iolite for working with splines. I’ll use the existing “Sr_isotopes_REE” DRS as an example – it’s distributed with Iolite, which should make life easy for anyone that wants…
