Document description: Definition: Online and Offline

There are two different Data Acquisition methods:

With Online Data Acquisition, an instrument is physically connected to the PC. The software is used to specify the measurement settings to use with the instrument. The software starts and controls the readings process and displays the data on the screen as the results arrive from the instrument.
With Offline Data Acquisition, the software imports data from existing text files. The software can automatically recognise text formats containing microplate based data and import the data with little or no user input.
Whichever method of Data Acquisition is used, the acquired data is treated in the same way after Data Acquisition is completed.
