OpenLAB CDS EZChrom Edition is the next generation of chromatography data systems and the successor of ChromGate CDS. OpenLAB CDS EZChrom Edition provides chromatography data acquisition, processing and control of GC and LC chromatographs and is used in chromatography operations ranging from single user/single instrument to multi-user/multi-instrument laboratories. It provides support of devices from KNAUER and many other manufacturers.
The basic workstation license can only be installed on one PC and allows for control and data acquisition from one system. The license includes System Suitability, Fraction Collector Control and one year Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA).
The system suitability option allows for test if the system is suitable for particular analysis by testing several parameters as resolution, peak asymmetry and theoretical plates.
The KNAUER fraction collector control option includes the drivers of several fraction collectors and supports fractionation by time, the peak recognition by level and/or slope, also with spectral confirmation. Collet Slices allows for setting a desired volume for each fraction, within the defined fraction vial volume. In the fraction collector configuration the delay volume and the fraction vial volume can be defined. This ensures that the target substance will be collected in the fraction vial and the fraction vial will not overflow. The pump flow rate, which is required for calculation of delay and fraction vial fill level, will be automatically read from the pump's meethod setup. If a chromatogram of your separation already exists, the required fractionation commands can be derived directly from the chromatogram with a double mouse-click. The rack view gives an overview of the already collected fraction, their volume and retention time. The manual fraction control and the option to use the KNAUER electric valves for fractionation gives you more flexibility. The combination of virtual detector and virtual fraction collector allows for optimizing the fractionation settings from an existing chromatogram of your separations without any physically existing device and, therefore, without the loss of solvent or target substance.
