An instrument method is a stored set of instructions for controlling an instrument. An instrument method is created with the Instrument Method Wizard and can be edited in the Instrument Method Editor.

To create an instrument method, follow these steps:


  1. Under the Instruments category in the Chromeleon Console, select the instrument that you want to create an instrument method for from the navigation pane.
  2. From the Create menu, select Instrument Method. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete each page of the Instrument Method Wizard and then select Finish.
  3. The instrument method opens in the Chromeleon Chromatography Studio.
  4. (Optional) Review the instrument method by selecting the module views of the modules whose settings you want to edit in the navigation pane, and then edit the module settings, if required.
  5. Select Save Changes in the quick access toolbar and then specify a location and name for the instrument method.
