Just imagine, you are a non-scientist working with GC-MS.
You get the task to analyze some complex organic extracts. You are working
together with one of the wonderful technicians who prepare the samples and fill the auto sampler for you - but you are responsible for the task - therefore you push the "START" button.
After more or less leisure you go home - free in mind - because on the next day AMDIS will also do the work for you. On the next day you start your PC and AMDIS - you load the files from the different systems to your desktop and press "Analyze". After some seconds you get a list with your target analytes (from some of them you never heard the name). You save the list and send it to your boss or customer. A day later you get your cheque.
Any problems (apart from the GC-MS and the cheque)?
Yes - because you are a scientist and have to verify your data. But AMDIS can help you to save time and to avoid the "mouse click syndrome" (from subtracting all your spectra manually).
