Shimadzu's LCsolution software offers an intuitive easy-to-use operating environment and sets a new standard for laboratory productivity in the 21st century by offering innovative solutions to meet the challenges of high sample throughput, instrument control, diverse data handling, and integration with regulatory compliance. Shimadzu Lab Solutions workstation unifies data acquisition and management across all types of chromatographic instruments. The operating environment for chromatography applications is standardized with the common user interface, which provides for improved productivity of your analysis.
LCsolution's assistant bar provides easy navigation between major modes of operation. Data explorer provides easy access to data, method and sequence files. By simply double-clicking a data file name, chromatogram and quantitation results can be viewed. Window layout can be saved with its name, which enables users to optimize their operation environment. Wizard functions enable easy parameter settings including peak integration, peak identification, and calibration curve information.
Automation for high productivity
Automation of analysis reduces the time spent on a variety of operations - from bringing the instrument to the optimal conditions before the run to the device shutdown.
For report generation, 26 types of report items are available, including sample information and chromatogram. You can modify existing templates or create your own for infinite possibilities.
OLE automation capability supports users´ customization programs. After the program is applied, the user can access data from custom software.
Reinforcement of 3-Dimensional Data Management
3-dimensional data analysis, which requires high functionality and operability, can use quantitative layouts, qualitative layouts, and custom layouts (which can be saved with name and layouts). Displaying necessary information, these layout screens can be switched easily. By the correlation of chromatogram and spectrum, peak-top spectra can be sequentially checked and a chromatogram at a designed wavelength can be displayed by double-clicking on the spectrum. In the spectrum index, spectra of detected peaks, including unidentified peak, can be viewed. 2 sets of SPD-M10AVP/SPD-M20A can be controlled.
System administration includes the setting of system policy, user management, log browser and audit trails, which support 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
Allows access to the system by system operation control, password validity, and its minimum length, which supports Part 11 compliance in both network and standalone environments.
Consists of the relations among groups and users. The permission pertains to a group and users gain permission by belonging to a group. User security and authorization management help optimize workflow for your laboratory.
Event logs regarding the log and system administration as well as the analytical instrument are displayed. When the user administration is shared with the Shimadzu User Authentication Tool, logs of the user authentication server are also displayed. An easy-to-use filter function quickly selects and displays only those records that match the set criteria.
The complete history of an instrument´s operation and data processing parameters can be saved and output for traceability purposes. In addition, the data audit trail, data acquisition method, and the most recent analysis´ parameters are saved in the data file for future access. With LCsolution, it is also possible to apply audit trail functionality to system policy and as a global requirement for all methods created in the system.
Integrated Data Management
LCsolution has a function for automatic data transfer to CLASS-Agent database. With CLASS-Agent manager, data browsing, inspection, and approval of data for chromatography and spectrophotometry instruments and balances can be obtained without learning new operations for the workstation or analytical instrument's software.
In CLASS-Agent, data search is easy
