About this plug-in

This format is exported as a text file (.txt) with values separated by tab characters. Retention times are calculated in minutes by finding the mean and standard deviation of each included ion's most intense peak across all aligned runs. The retention time limits are given as:

Minimum:mean − 3 x standard deviations
Maximum:mean + 3 x standard deviations

An extra option allows you to increase this retention time window by a number of minutes to account for likely changes in chromatography. With this format, any compound ions that have the same m/z value and retention time windows less than 0.02 minutes apart, are merged into a single entry in the inclusion list.

Exported fields:

Mass [m/z]m/z of the monoisotopic peak
CS [z]charge of the compound ion
Polaritypolarity of the compound ion 'Positive' or 'Negative'
Start [min]Start of the retention time window in minutes
End [min]End of the retention time window in minutes
