Agilent and ACD/Labs sign marketing agreement on method development software

Agilent Technologies and Advanced Chemistry Development have signed an agreement to co-market ACD/AutoChrom for ChemStation software that automates method development for Agilent HPLC, Rapid Resolution LC and LC/MS systems. This new software is designed to help chromatographers develop better, more robust methods, in less time.

ACD/AutoChrom combines full instrument control via Agilent ChemStation with the ability to direct rational, computer-assisted method development. AutoChrom can perform flexible combinations of column, solvent and buffer screening experiments, as well as automatic method optimisation. Automated component tracking between injections based on MS and UV spectral similarity make it easier than ever to evaluate the results of screening experiments. Once the experiments are complete, the data are automatically transferred from ChemStation, back to AutoChrom for processing, interpretation and assisted decision-making, saving time and helping the user make better decisions about the next experiment to perform.

ACD/AutoChrom for ChemStation currently supports Agilent 1100, 1200 and 1200 SL Series liquid chromatographs, and model G1946 and G1956 mass spectrometers. Support for Agilent 6100 Series mass spectrometers is in development, and is expected to be available in the fourth quarter of 2008. ACD/AutoChrom for ChemStation is available from ACD/Labs.
