The FQT software allows the user to enter header information such as: operator, sample identifier, averaging intervals, and number of sides sampled. After entering the header information, the program proceeds to the collection menu. At this point the program is in a stand-by mode until a sample is taken. Once a sample is taken, the program stores the pentetration profile, peak value and time of the reading and then will automatically advance to the next sample without requiring a keyboard entry. This insures the collection process flows as efficiently as possible.
The program's main collection menu is comprised of two sections, a readings display window and a graphical display module. The readings section is located on the left side of window and displays a running account of the information which has been collected. The graphical display module is used to disay the penetration profile, as well as graph statistical information such as peak readings and frequency distributions.
The FQT has a feature which allows the user to set various settings such as the ability to set upper and lower time restrictions on the penetration of the sample. This gives the operator the ability to set filter protocols and reject readings outside these limits. This feature also serves to reduce operator variability and provide operator feedback. These option are set using the FQT's control panel
The data collected by the system is easily exported to other formats such as QuattroPro® or Excel®.

The FQT was developed with the collaboration of John M. DeLong, Robert K. Prange, and Peter A. Harrison of the Atlantic Food and Horticulture Research Centre, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.
