USP Suitability in Empower
Hi everyone. Did a quick search and didn’t find anything on this – hopefully I didn’t miss anything. I was curious when Empower (in my case Empower 2) was going to update the suitability module to match the recent (well some back to 2009) changes to the USP. In particular this is in regards to the new USP signal to noise calculations. I realize that since USP has harmonized with EP, that EP s/n is the same as USP. However there are issues, such as selecting USP as the compendia in the suitability tab prevents EP s/n from calculating.My suggestion is to realign the compendia calculations to match the most recent changes in all compendia. I would also suggest adding the option to use Average P2P Noise for the noise value, of course requiring the user to set the minimum Segmentlength to 5x 50% peak width (just like they do for start stop times now). I would also suggest adding the option to say “Ignore Integrated Peaks” contained within the Start / Stop region. Something like a simple checkbox in the Noise and Drift tab would work. That way you could actual use the noise “situated equally around the peak of interest”, well when possible that is.Anyway I hope this is something already in the works, as the compendia calculations really need to be updated. Please let me know the timeline for this much needed correction.
