Perfectly Synchronized Sample Preparation and Analysis
Product News Mar 23, 2010
Sample preparation for GC/MS or LC/MS analysis can involve sample clean-up and liquid handling processes, such as additions or dilutions, as well as analyte concentration steps to reach the required limits of detection (LOD).
Using the MAESTRO Software PrepAhead function, sample preparation is performed while chromatography of the preceding sample is in progress to optimize throughput. Urgent samples can be inserted into the running sequence without slowing or halting the workflow. If the analysis has been stopped before completion of the entire batch, an e-mail notification can be sent to one or more addresses enabling users to quickly restore productivity.
Context-sensitive help is available for all functions and entry fields in the software and a remote support software tool is included. The user can enable the GERSTEL support team to view the software screen via internet for fast and efficient advice on trouble-shooting or for training as needed.
MAESTRO operates independently, fully integrated with the Agilent ChemStation software and with Agilent MassHunter GC Triple Quad software. Only one method and one sequence table is required to operate the complete system from sample prep to GC/MS or LC/MS analysis.
