PRESS RELEASE

Laura 4.1

LabLogic Systems has released the first major revision of its radiochromatography software, Laura 4. Version 4.1 of the software supports Windows 7 and brings users more than one hundred improvements in total. These include powerful new display options, including 2D chromatogram display and even 3D display for DAD measurements. Another new feature is that images – structures for example - can now be included in the chromatogram. This function supports complementary systems such as ChemDraw.

The automatic peak finder in Laura 4.1 has been re-designed and improved to support automatic data analysis, and the Active Counting Mode (ACM), which increases limits of detection by optimising counting conditions in real time, has a new noise reduction facility. New data extraction features include signal-to-noise values (per cent relative area and per cent relative height, for example) and the improved report designer makes it even easier for users to create report templates.

Laura 4.1 continues Lablogic’s policy of making the program a single point of control for HPLC systems and detectors, with interfaces for the Agilent 1260 and 1290, BetaRAM 5 radio flow detector, FlowRAM and ScanRAM.
