I'm wondering if anybody knows of an inexpensive way to use an
MS-DOS/Windows based machine to aquire analoque data in the same manner
as a chart recorder. I have looked at a bunch of specialized commercial
chromatography software but they are all outrageously expensive. I would
think there must be cheap analoque to digital boards available for this
type of application as well as inexpensive commercial software or
preferably good shareware/freeware. In fact, I would think there may
even be external boards available that can interface with a serial
port. The interface of the software doesn't have to be fancy provided
you can cut/paste to it, and export the chromatogram into a
drawing/presentation program. For my purposes automated peak integration
is not important provided chromatograms can be printed to scale.
