Question
What does the "conditioning" option do in the QBD1200 measurement settings?
Summary
QBD1200 measurement conditioning
Answer
The conditioning basically warms up the lamp before the first measurement of a process. For instance, if you are running a tray, including running a background first, the analyzer will warm (condition) the lamp for 6 minutes before the background starts. If you just run a tray without running a background first, then it will condition the lamp before the first sample is measured. This mostly solves problems where our first measurement was significantly different from every measurement after it. We strongly recommend keeping this feature enabled.
