I have a problem with our IRMS system and would be glad if someone could
help me. We use the Isodat 3.0 software with a Conflo IV interface and
Delta Plus XP mass spectrometer. I was running a GC-IRMS sequence
analyzing CO2 when the sequence was stopped and the message "running
script returns a fatal error: peak center failed" appeared. I then tried
to do a peak center myself, but no signal was registered when switching
on the reference gas. It was the same with N2 as reference gas. Box and
trap-values were fine and also enough gas was left. Restarting the
computer and the software didn't help either.
I am relatively new to the field, so I am not sure what can be done to
fix the problem or where the problem can be.
Has anyone experienced a similar problem before and can help me with
Thank you all very much in advance for your help.
