msalign: Signal calibration and alignment by reference peaks

Project description

msalign - signal calibration and alignment

Tests codecov CodeFactor Netlify Status

Wheel PyPI Versions Downloads

This package was inspired by MATLAB's msalign function which allows alignment of multiple signals to reference peaks.


Install from PyPi

pip install msalign

Install directly from GitHub

pip install -e git+

Install in development mode

python develop


Usage is relatively straightforward. Simply import msalign from the package and provide x, array and peaks values. msalign accepts a lot of other parameters that might improve your alignment - simply provide them as keyword parameters.

import numpy as np
from msalign import msalign

filename = r"./example_data/msalign_test_data.csv"
data = np.genfromtxt(filename, delimiter=",")
x = data[1:, 0]
array = data[1:, 1:].T
peaks = [3991.4, 4598, 7964, 9160]

aligned = msalign(x, array, peaks, weights=[60, 100, 60, 100], only_shift=False)


Zoom-in on each peak the spectrum was aligned against
