Input of GC-MS SIM data

Input of GC-MS SIM data Joerg  2020-01-21

i want to import SIM-data from our GC-MS from Agilent. However, i repeatedly get the following error message upon import of the runs:

Failed importing results file 'C:\Daten\Skyline\GC\Allopregnanolone\10µmolar A -sim.D'.
Invalid chromatogram ID SIM SIC Q1=215.15 start=5.087066667 end=14.497416667 found. Failure parsing m/z values.

Could it be that my transition list is flawed or i this a problem of the import file structure?

Many thanks in advance!

Hi Joerg,

I don't think you're doing anything wrong - I think there's a problem with Skyline.

May I see your transition list and the 10µmolar A -sim.D file so I be sure I understand the problem, and be certain of the fix? You can upload them to or we can arrange something private if you prefer.

Thanks for using the Skyline support board,

Brian Pratt

Hi Brian,
sorry for the delay! I uploaded the TransitionList_GC_SIM.csv (german computer system, so decimal separators are ",") and the data "PS6.D" as a zip file.
Hope this helps!
Many thanks

Thanks for the files. As I suspected, there was an issue with Skyline. We'll get this fixed for the next Skyline-Daily.

Best regards,
