Get hands-on experience with iRT, a technique for storing calibrated, empirically measured peptide retention times in a library for future use in retention time prediction for scheduled acquisition and peak identity validation. In this tutorial, you will calibrate your own iRT calculator and also learn more about the iRT-C18 calibration proposed by Biognosys for the peptide standards in their iRT-Kit. You will calibrate new iRT values from SRM data, a spectral library and chromatogram peaks filtered from MS1 scans in a discovery experiment. And, you will learn how to recalibrate these iRT values to schedule SRM acquisition on a new column with a new gradient. You will see how more accurate retention time prediction based on iRT can give you higher confidence in your chromatogram peak identity validation. (32 pages)
