When you are certain that the instrument is ready for analysis, you can start a sequence (see Starting a sequence).

To start a sequence, follow these steps:


  1. In the Chromeleon Console, select the Data category.
  2. In the navigation pane, select the sequence that you want to run.
  3. The sequence opens in the work area.
  4. Add a sequence to the queue by doing one of the following:
  5. Select the down arrow on the Start button, and then select Add to Queue.
  6. Select the Start button to add the sequence to the queue and immediately start the queue.

The sequence is added to the queue. If the queue is empty, the application performs a Ready Check. If there are no errors, the application starts the queue.
