Interfacing Viscotek detectors with Waters SEC systems and Waters Empower® software

Many High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and Size Exclusion
Chromatography (SEC) systems and detectors are compatible with each other thanks to analog and digital connections which allow them to exchange raw detector signals and injection trigger signals. Malvern’s OmniSEC software (version 5.1) now has the added ability to communicate
with Waters Empower® software, which is widely used for SEC measurements. This allows the user to copy sample sequences directly from Empower® and synchronize measurements thanks to the injection trigger signals. This technical note describes how to connect Viscotek detectors to Waters systems, in particular the Waters Alliance® system, and how to use OmniSEC in combination with Empower® to run trouble-free separation sequences.
