  1. Since these two samples were run under different chromatographic conditions, it is difficult to compare them in one plot so let’s make it more user friendly. Right-click in the plot and select Properties.

  1. Go to the Overlay tab and under Overlay Type select Make Stack Plot and under Chromatogram Annotation select ‘All Chroms’ in Overlay.  Now we can compare the chromatograms in a more useful way.
