  • Publication number: 20210116468
    Abstract: A user utters a voice containing a specific keyword according to the purpose. A voice recognition unit (152) performs verbalization processing on the voice input via a voice input unit (151) and extracts a keyword. A control information selection unit (155) refers to a control information DB (156), acquires control information corresponding to the keyword, and sends it to a data processing unit (120). The data processing unit (120) executes, for example, peak waveform processing in which parameters are changed, according to the command associated with the control information. In this way, various operations that were conventionally required to be performed by an operation unit (140) such as a keyboard or a mouse, such as a change of various parameters and conditions during data processing and a change of the data to be processed, can be performed by the voice. As a result, even infrequently used functions can be easily used, and even beginners can easily operate the functions.

  • Publication number: 20190113487
    Abstract: When a peak in a chromatogram is automatically detected by an automatic waveform processing unit and a user thereafter performs a manual operation on the peak, a manual waveform processing unit changes peak information on the peak. A time difference calculation unit calculates an elution time difference between peaks of the same component in two pieces of analyzed data. A peak selection unit selects, for the target data, a peak of the same component as the peak in the analyzed data based on analysis dates and times, namely the sequence of generation dates and times of the pieces of chromatogram data. Based on the elution time difference and the analysis dates and times, a peak information reflection unit reflects the change, made in peak information on the peak in the analyzed data, in peak information on the peak selected in the target data.
