Fisher Scientific, the world leader in serving science, and ChromSword, a provider of innovative software products, have collaborated to launch an automated high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and ultra-high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) method development system that enables chromatographers to deliver robust and validated methods in less time and with higher confidence.
"Liquid chromatography method development is an incredibly time-consuming and labor-intensive process. To efficiently develop robust methods, frequent manual interactions and extensive method development experience are critical," said Christoph Nickel, Senior Director Software Marketing, Thermo Fisher Scientific. "The Vanquish Method Development HPLC and UHPLC system solves this challenge by allowing our customers to automate method development and validation, saving time and eliminating prerequisite expert user knowledge."
Dr. Sergey Galushko, head of research and development at ChromSword, said "Chromeleon CDS and ChromSwordAuto are two of the most powerful chromatography software systems available. By combining the intelligent method development capabilities of ChromSwordAuto with Chromeleon software’s flexible instrument control functionalities, we’re providing users with a complete suite of method development and validation tools. Through this package, a substantial reduction in method development time is possible for Chromeleon CDS users working with small and large molecules."
In addition to speed and ease-of-use, the system offers unparalleled method flexibility to pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, chemical and food testing laboratories, boasting automated column switching and universal analyte detection, with mass spectrometry-based peak tracking capabilities delivering more reliable results. Using Chromeleon CDS with ChromSwordAuto Chromeleon Connect and ChromSword AutoRobust Chromeleon Connect enables chromatographers to automate method development tasks, including method scouting, impurity profiling, fine optimisation and method validation. Through next-generation automation, the system is well-placed to meet the changing needs of laboratories as they look to implement broader digitalisation strategies and reduce on-site personnel.
