Chromatography Data Collection Software


Quick Overview

PowerChrom software is used for the collection, display and analysis of chromatographic and similar signals.
  • Turns your computer into a chromatography data workstation
  • No programming required - just plug and play
  • Collect signals from one or two detectors
  • Use with ER180 PowerChrom hardware or any Edaq data recorder

PowerChrom Software

PowerChrom software is used for the collection, display and analysis of chromatographic and similar signals.

PowerChrom is supplied as part of the PowerChrom system, or separately for use with e-corder recording systems. Signals can be recorded from one or two chromatography detectors. Most detectors that have a "recorder" or "integrator" output are suitable.

Software Features

  • Update Your Chromatograph

    PowerChrom is the ideal data acquisition system for upgrading your GC or HPLC. Throw away paper recorders, integrators, and DOS-based systems, and work with the latest generation of computing technology.

    Automatic or manual operation is possible (depending on your chromatograph configuration). Autosamplers and fraction collectors can be triggered with contact closure or TTL signals. Multi-run experiments are controlled via sequence documents (PowerChrom System 180).
  • GLP

    PowerChrom is designed to help you with good laboratory practice:
    • All runs are date and time stamped
    • Methods used for data collection and analysis are recorded
    • Extensive annotation facilities store observations, and keep track of sample numbers etc
    • Data is saved to hard disk every thirty seconds, and can be recovered in the event of a power outage
    • All information (methods, calibrations, peak reports, as well as raw data) is stored in the one convenient data file, which can contain up to 999 runs!
    • Files can be transferred between Windows and Macintosh computers
    • All intermediate versions of calibration tables can be accessed
  • Export Friendly

    You can export raw chromatograms (as graphics or tabular data), peak reports, and method and sequence tables, to other graphing software, word processors, and spreadsheets.
  • Manual Peak Editing

    For difficult peaks, when adjusting automatic thresholds becomes time consuming, just use manual peak editing to add, delete, skim or otherwise directly edit a peak - just point and click!
  • Calibration Response Functions

    Calibration curves can be fitted with linear, quadratic or even point-to-point (linear interpolation) response functions.
  • Sequences for Automation

    Sequence documents can be used to automate a series of runs when used with a suitable autosampler. (PowerChrom 180 system).
  • Digital Signal Processing

    PowerChrom oversamples the signal then averages the readings for each data point gathered, giving enhanced signal-to-noise ratios. Also, at recording speeds of 40 /s or less, the signal is averaged over whole mains cycles (50 or 60 Hz mains power), which eliminates the effects of mains hum. Thus you always get the highest quality data possible from your detectors.
