Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., has announced the availability of a new Thermo Scientific Atlas Chromatography Data System (CDS) instrument control software for the Shimadzu Prominence® and Prominence XR HPLC. Seamless control of Shimadzu’s Prominence is now possible at no extra cost as no connection license is required.

Award-winning Atlas CDS™ provides chromatographers with a client/server chromatography-based software solution available for controlling multi-vendor instruments.

Within regulated industries, data management is a crucial part of the quality control process. Consequently, there is great demand for a single CDS that can integrate chromatographs from a variety of manufacturers. In response to customer needs and current market demand, Thermo Fisher and Shimadzu have collaborated to provide full instrument control and chromatography data handling within Atlas for the Shimadzu Prominence; a network-ready HPLC.

“This collaboration combines the strengths of both companies and will benefit customers by providing a truly integrated solution for users that require multi-vendor compatibility,” said Dave Champagne, vice president and general manager for Thermo Fisher's Informatics business.

Champagne continued, “The Shimadzu Prominence (20A) LC control delivers added functionality to allow multiple instruments to be controlled on one PC. The integrated auditing capabilities of Atlas provide full audit trails of all instrument methods and data processing actions. This gives users confidence that our systems will enable them to satisfy applicable compliance regulations such as GMP and 21 CFR Part 11.”

The new Shimadzu Prominence (20A) LC control allows the Shimadzu Prominence systems to be used with Atlas software with seamless control, supporting up to four instruments per 247 IC or DataServer. The Shimadzu Prominence (20A) control provides an instrument status screen, delivering direct feedback to the user on current instrument conditions.

Developed with the Atlas DDK (device development kit), the control follows the user interface design followed by the Shimadzu VP instruments. The Shimadzu Prominence is a LAN-based instrument and can be connected to the laboratory network or private instrument network to provide data integrity by network buffering.

“We have received numerous requests from customers who use our LC and GC systems to enable control with Atlas CDS. I am pleased to see that control of Prominence is now possible through collaboration between Thermo Fisher and Shimadzu. This milestone will certainly benefit our mutual customers, and we look forward to continuing our relationship to further extend the control capability,” said Teruhisa Ueda, Ph.D., corporate officer and deputy general manager, Analytical and Measuring Instruments Division, Shimadzu Corporation.
