Thermo Fisher Scientific and Agilent Technologies have announced they are continuing their agreement to the industry-wide Instrument Control Exchange Program (ICEP) – fostering compatibility among key vendors' instrumentation and chromatography data systems (CDS).
The latest enhancements to Thermo Scientific Chromeleon CDS software are designed to allow users to streamline quality control workflows through improved compatibility with Agilent's gas chromatography (GC) and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) instrumentation. Additionally, for the first time, Thermo Fisher's GC, HPLC and selected Ion Chromatography (IC) instruments can also be controlled in Agilent's OpenLab CDS. This allows users to increase workflow flexibility and efficiency through the implementation of instruments suited to their needs.
"The lack of interoperability between different vendors' instruments and software has traditionally presented a barrier to laboratories adopting the solutions that best meet the unique needs of their workflows," said Matt Hazlewood, senior director, global enterprise chromatography data systems, Thermo Fisher Scientific.
The renewal of this commitment and launch of the mutually enhanced CDS software highlights the continued cooperation of companies to provide solutions in the best interest of their users, avoiding the need for multiple software to run a single system or prevent the implementation of new instrumentation.
