Data System Unites Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry
Thermo Fisher Scientific introduced the next generation of its Chromeleon chromatography data system (CDS), which now supports mass spectrometry along with mainstream front-end separation techniques in the same software package. Thermo Scientific Dionex Chromeleon 7.2 CDS bridges the gap between gas, liquid, or ion chromatography and mass spectrometry to offer enterprise-wide gains in laboratory productivity. Chromeleon 7.2 CDS allows chromatography and mass spectrometry (MS) quantitiation workflows to be streamlined on a single software platform. The software’s suite of automation tools, including Cobra detection algorithm, SmartPeaks integration assistant, and linking panes are designed to reduce review time and data processing. A new consolidated report function generates summaries of very large data sets to facilitate interpretation of results. Seamless integration of the CDS with LIMS and SDMS infrastructure can enable a paperless lab, and Chromeleon 7 platform architecture is designed to accommodate future upgrades. eWorkflows automate many routine tasks, shown by users to boost productivity while reducing manual data entry and processing errors. Initially, Chromeleon 7.2 CDS provides full enterprise support for Thermo Scientific ISQ single quadrupole and TSQ 8000 triple quadrupole GC-MS instruments, plus central processing, reporting, storage and management of LC-MS data. Full native instrument control for LC-MS platforms will be added later.
