Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. announces the new Thermo Scientific Atlas Chromatography Data System (CDS) add-on instrument control software for the Thermo Scientific Accela High Speed LC providing integrated instrument control, digital data acquisition, chromatography data processing and reporting. The Atlas CDS provides chromatographers with a client/server chromatography-based software solution available for controlling the Accela LC.

The new Atlas Extension Kit integrates full instrument control and chromatography data handling for the Accela high speed pump, autosampler and PDA detector, and is designed to marry the rapid data analysis, processing and reporting of Atlas with the High Speed LC separations of the Accela.  The Accela High Speed LC with sub 2-micron particle columns can operate at the standard pressures of conventional HPLC to 15,000 psi and separate samples faster, with better resolution and efficiency on the same instrument.

Thermo Scientific Atlas CDS provides a scalable client/server environment for laboratory LAN and WAN networks in pharmaceutical drug development, discovery, QA/QC laboratories, academia, and the food and beverage industries.   Designed as a multi-user, multi-instrument data system, it enables remote network access to any Accela so that its data can be fully collected, secured and protected – enabling organizations to make more informed decisions faster. In addition, Atlas provides seamless integration of Accela results with enterprise wide laboratory informatics management systems applications including the full range of Thermo Scientific LIMS: Darwin, SampleManager, Nautilus and Watson.

Atlas software control for the Accela system is available immediately in version 8.2 of Atlas.
