Nexxis ELN Interface
27 October 2010
Labtronics has announced the release of a new interface between its Nexxis ELN and Chromeleon CDS from Dionex. This connector links Chromeleon CDS and Nexxis ELN transparently so that information is automatically exchanged between the two systems. Nexxis ELN can collect sample weights and all of the metadata for the sample prep process. The weights can then be sent to Chromeleon, allowing it to complete the concentration calculations, with results then being sent back to Nexxis ELN where they are automatically added to the same worksheet used for sample prep.
Using this workflow, Nexxis ELN gathers all of the information for an analysis in one place. A single worksheet contains everything related to a chromatography analysis, including the batch number of reagents used to prepare the sample, the analyst who did the work, the column ID, the instrument that performed the analysis, a link to the chromatogram, and the final calculated results.
With all of the information in one place, the review and approval process becomes easier to complete. The interface connector will also automatically store the chromatography report in any SDMS, including Nexxis SDMS, and will send results to any LIMS.
The ability to have a single source store all of the metadata for a complete chromatographic analysis adds tremendous value to the lab, which is now able to quickly review and approve the data, and track down any issues.
