Introducing the Cross Peaks Manager
In the spring of 2010 a customer said he was using iNMR for almost everything, but Sparky for assigning the peaks of 2-D correlation experiments. The main reason for using Sparky was that, once you have assigned the first spectrum, the knowledge is automatically available and visible into all the other experiments of the same sample.
He asked me if it was possible to add into iNMR at least the bare mechanism of book-keeping the list of assigned resonances, because this is all that is needed in the case of natural organic compounds. In other words, he wanted the same functionality provided by Sparky but with the easiness of use of iNMR, all into a single program. The Cross Peaks Manager was born in this way. We use to call it “CPM” for short.
Soon afterwards, other groups, who were working with proteins or with nucleic acids, asked for the inclusion of more and more functionalities into the CPM, to the point that it became the biggest module of iNMR. All the modules are embedded and free. No need to choose, download, install, order nor pay. It's all into the main program.
