You must assign a processing method to each experiment. The processing method you select specifies the identification, component detection, and other experiment-specific parameters that the BioPharma Finder application uses to process your experiment. The application contains one or more default processing methods for each of the four workflows (peptide mapping analysis, oligonucleotide analysis, intact mass analysis, and top down analysis).

You can use a default processing method or create and save a custom processing method by editing one of the default methods.

For more information on creating custom processing methods, refer to the workflow-specific "Working with a [workflow] processing method" chapters later in the User Guide.
