The report will produce printable documents of your analysis as well as the possibility to move and save the data of the analysis to different file types like PDF, Excel, Word.
Report Settings: select the report mode, the template and other options
Preview: the report itself
Report has two different modes:
Full plate mode: the pictures of the whole plate are displayed.
Samples mode: for each sample, the area corresponding to the track is displayed for each picture.
You can select the wanted samples in the sequence table.
Each sample is displayed on a separate report page.
Images per page width: in full plate mode, you can have either two small photos of the plate on the same line (two columns) or one big photo.
Image options: image annotations can be enabled or disabled for each annotation type.
Report elements: the report is divided by analysis steps. For Chromatography and Data Acquisition, it is sub-divided by HPTLC steps (therefore depending on your analysis). You can select which elements you want to have in the report.
These report settings aren’t saved, if you switch the tabs or close the analysis, on return the default values will be set again. If you want to save your setting, you should save them as a template.
The active template is displayed here(or none if no template is selected).
Even if you change settings, the active template remains displayed, as it will be used (and not the modified settings) after a tab or a file switch.
If you want to save and reuse (in this analysis or others) the settings, you should Save as template.
You need to enter a name for the template (mandatory), and optionally a description.
For using a template, you should Load template.
