Chromatography software

A chromatography software, also known as a Chromatography data system (CDS[citation needed]), collects and analyzes chromatographic results delivered by chromatography detectors.

Many chromatography software packages are provided by manufacturers, and many of them only provide a simple interface to acquire data. They also provide different tools to analyze this data.[citation needed]

The most common tool is "integration": It computes simple areas to delimit peaks by adding valleys automatically or not. Areas are computed between two valleys, a signal, and a baseline.[citation needed]

The following is a list of software and the (unexplained) tools that each provides:
