This presentation highlights two recent innovations that improve the usability of the GC-MS system with respect to the above mentioned points. Tuning of the mass spectrometer is a critical aspect of running the instrument that ensures the system is in the right working state and is ready to run samples. Mass calibration and resolution tuning are two of the most important steps that are performed to ensure that the system is in good working state. Most modern instruments have an Auto Tune function that is fairly easy to use, but unnecessary tuning of the system is not recommended since it could result in shortening the lifetime of the detector. We present here the concept of the SmartTune wizard which, with minimal clicks, checks the current tune state of the system and tunes it only when necessary. In case of tune/diagnostic failures, it gives specific recommendations to bring the system back into its recommended usable state. With the help of this wizard, a novice user would be able to start running their samples with minimal training.
