I am setting up our Nu Plasma 1 (machine #2!) for Pb by laser, but when I try to import the data into Iolite I keep getting errors related to the timing of each analysis. This morning I got ‘could not import <sample> due to time overlap on one or more channels (“Hg202”)’ (this might not be the exact wording; Iolite froze for other reasons before I copied the warning). Out of the 11 files I was trying to import, this happened to the two samples immediately before standards, when the delay between analyses is the longest. Now I’m getting ‘The sample <sample> was shunted by x seconds to avoid a time conflict’, where x is between 12 and -12, and has been applied to about 3/4 of the samples (but not the standards). The time stamps in the individual files in both cases clearly do not overlap each other, but I’m not sure why/where/how else Iolite thinks they might be colliding.
I’m running Iolite v.3.0 in Igor Pro 6.36 on a Win7 machine.
If it helps, this morning’s run was:
and this afternoon’s run was:
Many thanks in advance for any help you can provide,
P.S. Thanks for the instructions and patch for creating Nu format files, by the way – although I still get ‘<time>: The shortcut file “<shortcut>” did not contain enough channel names to load this file. Import aborted.’ on the first attempt every time I create one (and I promise I put the correct number of column headings into the table)…
