DiscoveryQuant Optimize will not complete optimization with the error message ‘Cannot set spectrum for experiment’ followed by a number, which can be any one of your scan functions.
This error is caused by insufficient scans for DiscoveryQuant to build a profile when processing the data. Remedy is to increase the number of datapoints in the experiment by either:
- Increase scan speed
- Decrease number of experiments (usually decreasing CE experiments for quick tune is a good idea as it is re-optimised in fine tune)
- Decrease Lower mass range (small effect but may get you 1 extra scan)
