Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced the launch of the new Agilent GPC/SEC software for gel permeation/size exclusion chromatography with improved measurement and reporting capabilities for the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
The software can be used across different platforms, providing a common element in both Agilent 1200 Infinity GPC/SEC systems and former Varian GPC/SEC systems.
The Agilent GPC/SEC software comes with a look and feel similar to the Agilent OpenLAB CDS LC software, making it easy for users to switch between GPC/SEC and HPLC.
The software builds on shared Agilent OpenLab software components, such as the Agilent Instrument Control Framework.
The GPC/SEC software includes a component that facilitates data collection and full control of all instrumentation supporting RC.NETdriver technology. This includes:
• All Agilent 1200 Infinity LC modules
• All Agilent 1200 series modules
• All Agilent 1100 series modules
• The Agilent PL-GPC 50 system
• Certain non-Agilent models
“Our powerful GPC/SEC systems provide a cost-effective and scientifically sound methodology for routine polymer characterization,” said Helmut Schulenberg-Schell, LC marketing manager at Agilent.
Schulenberg-Schell continued, “The new software extends our comprehensive GPC/SEC portfolio and not only provides users with better-quality results but enables quick and easy data retrieval and export in a variety of formats.”
The GPC/SEC software ensures reproducible results for conventional analysis with concentration detectors only and advanced multidetector applications.
The new customizable user interface offers easy access to improved information content from light-scattering and viscometry measurements.
Data collection from multiple channels is collated, and results, such as molecular weight and branching, are calculated in a single location.
