Chromeleon 7.2 Chromatography Data System

Chromeleon Goes MS

Have you ever wondered why you need to use two different software packages for instruments that sit on the same bench in the same lab and the only difference is that one has a mass spectrometer (MS) for detection?

Our customers told us that there is a big need to unify chromatography and MS software packages, the user experience, the workflows for chromatography, and routine quantitative MS analysis. The new release of Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ Chromeleon™ 7.2 Chromatography Data System (CDS) software was developed to do this and more.

Chromeleon 7.2 CDS extends beyond control, processing and data management of Thermo Scientific and 3rd party chromatographic instruments to full integration of Thermo Scientific's GC-MS/MS instruments. Chromeleon 7.2 CDS also processes and manages data from Thermo Scientific's LC-MS/MS instruments.

Chromeleon 7.2 CDS now streamlines your chromatography and MS quantitation workflows:

  • Quickly and easily process and report UV and MS data in one application
  • Run your GC-MS/MS analysis in an enterprise environment - from method creation, to quantitation and library-based compound identification

Additionally, Chromeleon 7.2 CDS comes with its unparalleled suite of tools for automated and fast data processing:

  • eWorkflow™ for automated execution of your SOPs
  • Automated and optimized integration of your chromatogram with Cobra™ Peak Detection algorithm
  • SmartPeaks™ Integration Assistant for easy integration of unresolved peaks
  • Immediate visualization of your results and modifications with dynamic interactive data processing

Bottom line: Yes, you can now utilize all these productivity tools to quickly and easily process and report your routine MS data in one application.

Whether your needs are simple or complex or your scope is a single instrument, a global enterprise, or anything in between - the combination of Chromeleon's scalable architecture and unparalleled ease-of-use with our well established MS expertise, makes your job easy and enjoyable with one CDS for the entire lab.

Chromeleon 7.2 CDS Highlights:

Designed for MS

Chromeleon 7.2 CDS is designed to enable MS data in the Chromeleon CDS enterprise architecture, control instruments and process MS data across your network. Central storage of MS data simplifies backup, searching (including NIST libraries) and trending of MS data. New component-centric views make MS data evaluation and reporting fast and easy. Visualize both quantitation and confirmation ions at the same time, with new consolidated report tables catering for multiple traces and large data sets.

More Right First Time Analyses

New Intelligent Run Control (IRC) gets you from samples to results even quicker. IRC enables you to react to passed or failed user-defined conditions during the sequence run. It provides many different options including re-injections of the current injection, all injections, restarting from an earlier point in the sequence, or adding extra injections. It includes built-in error handling, ensuring you get more right first time analyses.

Simplified Data Evaluation

By linking the active Chromatography Studio panes to the chromatogram, data evaluation becomes simple. Calibration plots, interactive charts and reports are linked to the active chromatogram displaying only data relevant to the current zoom or selected peaks, giving the analyst all the information they need for fast, easy data evaluation.

Connect Your Laboratory

With new import and export options, transferring data between other laboratory systems is easier than ever. Automatic import of legacy CDS data can be done directly (Chromeleon 6 CDS, Atlas) or via netCDf/AnDI removing the need to retain multiple legacy CDSs.

Recycle Bin

Have you ever accidentally deleted a sequence or folder? The new Recycle Bin feature makes it easy to recover deleted data, including sequences and folders.

Multiple Instrument Control

Use Chromeleon 7.2 CDS to unify control of all your instruments, regardless of type (LC/GC/IC/MS) or vendor.
