DataApex - Version Clarity Chromatography Software - Flexibility in connecting instruments and variety of application options
Clarity can be used with any GC or HPLC. Together with optional Control modules and Extensions it provides the laboratories with complete chromatography data handling system. The Control modules provide integrated control of selected instruments, Extensions provide functions for specific separation techniques such as PDA or GPC analysis.
Clarity Chromatography software comes with extensive free support from DataApex as well as from the growing community of users in the Clarity Forum. Unlike many large corporations, the DataApex Company is in close contact with its users.
The chromatography station package includes
- Clarity Software with complete set of printed manuals
- A/D converter for analog data acquisition (internal PCI card or external USB box)
- Control module for digital data acquisition.
Simultaneous data acquisition from up to four independent chromatographs, each chromatograph can acquire data from up to 12 detectors.
There is extensive possibility to modify chromatograms. The chromatogram can be changed by entering global parameters or interactively, through direct graphic modification of the baseline.
Simultaneously displays a virtually unlimited number of chromatograms and their mathematical modification; for example, mutual deductions or derivations of any order.
Internal and external standard calculation methods, calibration of groups of peaks and reference peaks method for better identification.
Automated measuring support
Sequence tables for any set of samples with or without an autosampler.
Automatically displays, prints, exports and starts other programs after the completion of a measurement.
Summary result tables
Displays and prints selected results from all simultaneously displayed chromatograms.
User selects parameters for peak display and the specification for axes, including color from an extensive array of color settings. Text labels and lines, either as part of the area or anchored to a chromatogram, may also be inserted.
Optional exportation of all results, with or without the chromatogram, in various formats, into a file or clipboard.
Imports chromatograms or mathematical curves, which have been saved in text or AIA formats, from other programs.
Method and calibration history
Each chromatogram can easily be displayed under the same conditions as when it was printed, exported or saved.
Calculations of peaks in terms of symmetry, efficiency, resolution; all by several methods (tangent, moments, etc.).
Automatically batch processes, displays, exports or prints any number of chromatograms.
Users can define custom calculations in the Result and Summary tables. Using the integrated editor you can create your own columns from original columns and individual mathematical functions.
Sets up access rights and passwords (including their parameters e.g., minimum length, validity, etc.). Each user can define his or her own station appearance.
Records selected events and operations into a special file. Records selected operations directly into a chromatogram.
Each chromatogram can be signed electronically. Signature selection is based on the username or the signature certificate.
Clarity chromatography station files can be accessed from networked computers using Clarity Offline software. This enables the offline evaluation of chromatograms, development of new methods and printing reports.
The chromatography market offers many specialized HPLC data systems or GC data systems, these are often provided with the purchased instrument. It is often complicated to integrate such software into the workflow of the laboratory since they do not enable direct control of additional instruments. Comparing to the small scale solutions such as PeakSimple, Chrom&Spec, Borwin, Azur, Multichro or Chrom-Card, Clarity offers wide range of directly controlled instruments as well as optional Extensions for specific separation techniques. On the other hand, complex solutions with wide scope of features and scalable design, such as EZChrom, ChemStation, Chromeleon, Galaxie, Class-VP, Chromquest or Empower are quite expensive, which is a limiting factor for many customers. Another drawback of the large solutions is its complexity which imposes high demands on users. Comparing to this Clarity represents scalable medium ranged solution with steep learning curve and competitive prices.
The Status Line indicates the current state of the analysis: elapsed time and state.
The Analysis-processing Diagram provides icons for fast access to every process of the whole procedure.
The Result tables (Results, Summary, Column Performance, etc.) can be easily customized to display the data you want see exactly in the way you want to see them.
The Summary tab displays data from overlaid chromatograms in one table for easy comparison.
The compound tabs contain a table with concentration levels matching the response with Amount and a calibration curve.
Any point can be temporarily suspended in the graph it is then marked with a circle instead of a cross.
These outputs can also be controlled from the Event Table. The setting on the image is used to control Fraction Collectors.
