After peak detection a single peak is split into two peaks (split peaks)
Previous Top Next

Peaks in the processed data were split into two more or less symmetric peaks. This phenomenon is not visible in the raw data.

This phenomenon appears if the baselining half width is adjusted to a value that is too low. In this case the flanking regions of a peak are treated as local minima. (See also >Baselining details).

Raise the baselining half width parameter for this or all channels.

Note that for background removal the latest GelQuest versions do not use a baselining algorithm at all but a rolling cycle algorithm.
