KNAUER ClarityChrom® is a powerful, yet easy-to-use chromatography software (or chromatography data system, CDS) for instrument control, data acquisition and data processing. ClarityChrom is designed for smaller laboratories. It is an economical solution compared to other more complex chromatography software while still offering FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
ClarityChrom comes as a complete package with LC control and including autosampler control. It is scalable from 1 up to 4 systems; depending on the desired instruments. The built-in fractionation option as well as the optional extensions as SST for automated system tests, PDA for 3D (UV spectra) data handling, GPC analysis, MS and GC control cover a wide range of the requirements for a CDS on a modern lab. KNAUER additionally offers are more advanced fractionation with the KNAUER FRC control module.
ClarityChrom supports all KNAUER devices that can be controlled by software. Please refer to the instrument support list in the Support section of our website, the download link can be found below. Beside this, devices and systems from more than 45 manufacturers can be controlled. Additionally, data acquisition can also be performed with any detector providing a voltage output by simply connecting a KNAUER IFU 2.1 interface box or any other supported A/D converter.
The system suitability (SST) extension automates the calculation of system suitability parameters for system validation and calculates up to 12 parameters and compares the results with the limits the user has set.
The PDA extension allows to acquire and process 3D data from a photo diode array detector (KNAUER PDA detectors are fully supported). The PDA extension provides peak purity analysis and peak identification by spectral library search in self-made or commercial spectra libraries.
The SEC/GPC extension provides interactive and automated gel permeation chromatography analysis, including re-calibration and GPC reporting, as well as simplifies the retrieval of GPC data. The GPC extension allows flow rate and multi-detector delay corrections and includes Narrow, Broad and Broad on Narrow calibrations.
ClarityChrom comes with some basic fractionation functionality. The KNAUER-exclusive Knauer FRC control module for ClarityChrom adds more drivers of several fraction collectors and supports the peak recognition by level and/or slope as well as fractionation by time. Also more advanced functionality as solvent recycling, manual fractionation and rack view with detailed fraction information and chromatogram links are available. The functionality corresponds exactly to the KNAUER preparative functionality of discontinued ClarityChromPrep.
ClarityChrom offers all the necessary operations for an analytical lab. Moreover, the preparative version adds fractionation options to this feature list and allows more flexibility in the lab. ClarityChrom is the best solution for all laboratories searching for an up-to-date and robust software with support of devices from many manufacturers to be flexible in instrumentation but also meet the requirements for modern laboratories.
