Thermo Fisher Scientific Launches Analytical Instrument and Software to Improve Laboratory Workflows
Product News Mar 02, 2020
Thermo Scientific Vanquish Core HPLC SystemPharmaceutical, food and industrial laboratories can optimize their routine testing and quality control (QC) workflows with an enhanced high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) system that delivers maximized instrument uptime and precision for any operator, regardless of experience.
The new Thermo Scientific Vanquish Core HPLC Systems expand on the performance of the Vanquish platform to provide a productivity-enhancing solution for routine laboratories. From automatically monitoring and determining solvent and waste levels with the Vanquish Solvent Monitor, to continuous background monitoring of system health, the Vanquish Core HPLC System is designed to maintain consistent throughput of dependable results.
"Routine analysis laboratories are expected to deliver precise results without delays. Chromatographers are often required to run methods from a diverse range of instrumentation, which presents a unique set of challenges, especially when integrating systems into an existing infrastructure," said Linda De Jesus, vice president and general manager, high performance chromatography solutions, Thermo Fisher Scientific. "While the Vanquish Core HPLC System enables our customers to deliver the results demanded of them, it also drastically simplifies method transfer and offers easy integration with many leading chromatography data system (CDS) software infrastructure."
The Vanquish Core HPLC System aims to:
- Minimize unexpected downtime through the Vanquish Solvent Monitor, which tracks mobile phase consumption and waste accumulation, preventing the system from running dry or from waste overflowing.
- Simplify integration with all major CDS software, including the new enterprise-level Thermo Scientific Chromeleon 7.3 CDS software, and other widely-used, leading chromatography data networks.
- Facilitate seamless method transfer with Custom Injection Programs, tunable Gradient Delay Volume, and choice of thermostatting technique.
- Provide an intuitive user interface for operators of all experience levels, allowing simple viewing of key instrument parameters, system health status, module information, and maintenance videos.
Thermo Scientific Chromeleon 7.3 Chromatography Data System (CDS) softwareThe new Thermo Scientific Chromeleon 7.3 CDS software is designed to provide greater automation and better workflow support. Chromeleon 7.3 CDS can be easily integrated into company systems and scaled from workstation to global enterprise deployment, ensuring continuity throughout the business. Using cloud-based technology, the software allows operation from remote locations across global laboratory networks, therefore reducing administrative costs and providing resourcing flexibility – all while delivering accurate results, even for non-expert users.
"Organizations are looking to improve efficiency while tracking and tracing all data for auditing purposes and regulatory compliance," said Matt Hazlewood, senior director, global chromatography data systems, Thermo Fisher Scientific. "Through the launch of Chromeleon 7.3 CDS software, customers can implement a scalable enterprise solution that increases productivity, while reducing costs and the burden on IT infrastructure – without impacting compliance."
Universal eWorkflow procedures facilitate efficient sample analysis across the company by allowing users to create customized workflows from adaptable templates. With the increasing challenge of meeting ever-changing standards and regulations, the new system also incorporates enhanced, searchable audit trials, with the aim of helping laboratories to more easily achieve and maintain comprehensive compliance by simplifying data audit trail capture, query and review.
