CALtools will save your laboratory time and money by revolutionizing the way Analysts process calibrations and chromatograms in EnviroQuant. CALtools transforms the Calibration Edit Compounds procedure into a direct editing spreadsheet like table. The new Sub-Listing procedures virtually eliminate wasted effort and time while processing and reporting chromatograms. The reprocessing macros electronically correct response factors in processed samples due to incorrect calibration files, a task that use to double the amount of time analysts process a batch of results.


  • CALtools with sub-listing technology saves 10-30% processing and QA review of EnviroQuant data.
  • CALtools requant technology saves 60-70% of the total time to reprocess EnviroQuant data due to a change in calibration method.
  • CALtools response factor management tools saves 80% of total time to manipulate response factors to non-calibrated compounds, either through referenced response factors or across compound averaged response factors (TPH and PAH/Biomarker methods).


  • New! Process and report only project required compounds with Sub-Listing technology
  • New! Flexible Quality Control Sample reports for LCS, SRM, and reference standards
  • New! Automate processing of complex and manual response factor manipulations like averaging compound response factors or referencing calibrated compounds response factors for non-calibrated compounds (.
  • Electronically reprocess existing results without having to manually recreate integrations. A real time saver when the wrong internal standard amount was used in the calibration file.
  • Build methods from scratch rapidly and accurately, and from sample result table when quant method has been lost or compromised.
  • Copy data in and out of CALtools. All views may be copied or printed for validation or extra-EnviroQuant processing.

CALtools Screen Shots

The following screenshots display a few of the many powerful editing features that will save your analysts time and your laboratory labor costs.

CALtools is designed for EnviroQuant users and tested for ease of use by GC and GCMS Environmental Laboratory analysts.

NEW! CALtools Sub-Listing

CALtools Sub-Listing will save your analysts valuable processing time.

Report and Process only those compounds required for each client project from a single calibration file.
Qedit shows only those compounds associated with the current sub-list.

NEW! QC Sample Summary Reports

Quickly generate a variety of quality control sample reports from drop down menus, and know the quality of the data at the beginning of the work.

  • Create Reports for any variety of LCS, MS, SRM, and oil reference standards.
  • Load qc sample and generate report to screen or printer, quickly and painlessly.
  • Copy and paste values for quick data entry
  • Print report of configuration table for validation purposes.

NEW! Advanced Response Factor Processing Tools

Automate response factor processing normally performed manually.

  • Assign calibrated compound references to non-calibrated compounds.
  • Identify source compound responses to be averaged for non-calibrated compounds based on response factor averages.
  • Updates response factor table in seconds without calculation or transcription errors.
  • Generates and audit report for all averages and compound referenced response factors.

CALtools Table Editor - Dual Column Synchronized View

The CALtools Editor with Dual Column Synchronized View simplifies compound table editing with dual signals.

For relevant fields (concentration, spiking, etc), data entry in the first column is automatically copied to the associated compound in the second column.
Adding, deleting, and moving compounds in the list are all synchronized for the fastest, safest way to manage your calibration method.

CALtools Table Editor - Curve Fit

The CALtools Editor is directly connected to the EnviroQuant Compounds List Editor. Changes made to any attribute are updated and refreshed instantly.

Check how modifications to curve fit and response factor levels affect curve quality (average response factor RSD or regression coefficients).
CALtools presents all available decimals for use in validation or spreadsheet processing.

CALtools Table Editor - Response Factors

Concentrations, Responses and response factors can all be viewed, edited, and printed or exported.

Check how modifications to curve fit and response factor levels affect curve quality (average response factor RSD or regression coefficients).
Drag the cursor across select response factors to see how dropping levels affects average response factors.
CALtools presents response factors to 5 decimals. Print reports for any calibration curve fit (currently not available as a table in EnviroQuant).

CALtools Table Editor - Insert New Compounds

CALtools makes adding compounds easy and fast.

  • Position compound before or after any compound in the list.
  • Apply selected attributes from one compound to the new compound, including response factors.
  • Dual column synchronized mode automatically duplicates and inserts the second column compound correctly.
  • Grouped compounds are a snap to add. Select the L compound type, assign a group number and determine the number of copies: CALtools does the rest!

CALtools Table Editor - Delete Compounds

CALtools makes trimming down copied method lists easy.

Select and flag for delete any number of compounds with the touch of the delete button. Compounds are deleted when CALtools is saved.
Dual Column Synchronized mode automatically flags the linked compounds for delete.

CALtools Table Editor - Quick Filters

CALtools provides filters for any compound type, including user defined.

  • Select the compound type from the compound type filter and only compounds flagged will be visible.
  • CALtools adapts to any combination of compound type flags and any introduced user defined flags.

CALtools Table Editor - Easy Sort

CALtools provides sorting functions unavailable in even the most modern version of EnviroQuant.

  • Sort by Retention Time: Use this sort to find a compound by retention time order. Dual columns are kept separated.
  • Sort by Compound Name: Use this sort to find your compound alphabetically. Also helpful for identifying missing linked compounds in Dual Column analysis.
