The Purity function in Empower applies to an internal standard when no purity value is entered - WKB18674

Article number: 18674

SYMPTOMS

  • The Purity function in Empower applies to both amount and response for an internal standard, even though there is no purity value specified for the internal standard
  • The Purity field is completed only for the external standard, not the internal standard

ENVIRONMENT

  • Empower 3 SR2 

CAUSE

This is a defect, PCS 53903 and 51430. When purity value is specified for an external standard but not the internal standard, Empower incorrectly uses the external standard's purity value to correct the amount and concentration values for the internal standard.

FIX or WORKAROUND

This issue is fixed in Empower 3 Feature Release 3.
