The article discusses ways of solving fundamental problems which show how more advanced data analytical methods can be a good alternative to traditional tools such as those offered in commercial chromatographic software. The first move in solving these fundamental problems is to transfer the data to a numerical computing environment such as MATLAB. Fundamental problems such as varying baseline and peak shifts must be handled before the actual data analysis.

    In multivariate calibration and modelling a model is built between a large data matrix containing many variables for each sample, such as a spectrum or a chromatogram, and a property of the samples, such as a given activity. Variable selection or reduction in the large matrix is required, or can...
