Agilent Technologies Inc. and Scion Instruments have announced a gas chromatography instrument control agreement. This exchange agreement provides customers the freedom to operate instruments from both manufacturers in each company’s chromatography data systems.
The companies will exchange development documentation and royalty-free licenses of driver software for the integration of each other’s GC instruments into their respective chromatography data systems. With the development of these drivers, GC systems from either manufacturer will be integrated into Agilent’s OpenLAB CDS EZChrom Edition and Scion’s CompassCDS chromatography data systems.
“Agilent pursues an open-systems approach to laboratory informatics, preserving our customers’ investment in instrumentation, workflows, operating procedures, data and knowledge,” said John Sadler, Agilent vice president and general manager of software and informatics.
“We are continuously expanding OpenLAB CDS multivendor instrument control capabilities in collaboration with other analytical instrument manufacturers and are working to standardize analytical instrument control across data systems, resulting in the best-working and best-tested software for our mutual customers.”
Specialty gases are widely used in a variety of industries. Because these gases are typically used in critical applications, they need to achieve a purity standard and contaminants need to be identified. Enter the world of specialty gas analysers.
JEOL’s AccuTOF-GCx was exhibited for the first time in the US at Pittcon 2015 in New Orleans, booth #1523. The AccuTOF-GCx, the fourth generation of JEOL’s successful gas chromatography/time-of-flight mass spectrometer systems, is designed for optimum throughput, operation, and uptime.
