On November 16th, Agilent Technologies (Santa Clara, California) released their brand new, state-of-the-art, next gen chromatography data system (CDS), Agilent OpenLAB CDS. The system features major improvements to Agilent’s current ChemStation and EZChrom Elite CDS platforms, and the new OpenLAB CDS is backward compatible with both of them.

“The new system is designed from a customer-centric perspective and dramatically improves productivity and quality across the entire customer organization -- from scientists and system administrators through lab managers and IT executives,” said Bruce von Herrmann, Vice President and General Manager of Agilent Software and Informatics.

“Our customers told us they wanted this new functionality without any changes to their existing workflows, and that's what we're delivering. We have engaged a number of customers throughout the design, development and testing phases of OpenLAB CDS,” Herrmann added.

OpenLAB supports both liquid and gas chromatographs from multiple different sources, enabling customers to have the freedom of choosing the vendor of their preference while also providing an easy way for labs to switch over from other data platforms.

According to the company, one of the major benefits of the new OpenLAB system is its intelligent reporting that allows users to generate analytical reports with whatever results they need and in any kind of format, enabling the reports to be precisely created to meet the needs of the user.
