Multi-vendor hardware control

Monday, 01 September, 2008 | Supplied by: Shimadzu Scientific Instruments (Oceania) Pty Ltd

Control of Shimadzu’s Prominence series high-performance liquid chromatograph (HPLC) by Waters Empower/Empower 2 chromatography data system is now available through a collaboration between Waters and Shimadzu utilising the Open Interface Portal for multi-vendor hardware control. Shimadzu Prominence now seamlessly operates within the Empower software environment. 

Prominence control parameters are set through the Prominence method editor embedded in the Empower software. These parameters are stored and handled as standard Empower method files, and are also available for inclusion in the reports.

Users experience transparent control of Prominence HPLC through Empower.

In addition to seamless system control, the detector signal is digitally transmitted to the data system. This eliminates the need to add an A/D converter for analog data acquisition, making system validation easier and more robust. Photodiode array detector 3D data analysis and spectral processing are also available through Empower.

Furthermore, system status information, such as pump pressure and the column oven temperature, may be monitored and recorded along with chromatograms, making analytical data even more reliable.

Full system control, including autosampler control, uses Empower sample set methods, and data processing is integrated with Empower software so that the audit trail functions of Empower software are fully utilised. This gives full confidence in the compliance of the system to regulations such as GMP and 21 CFR Part 11.
