Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., and MayLab Analytical Instruments, manufacturer of LC and LC-MS multi column selection and column switching system solutions, announce the release of new software control for MayLab's MistraSwitch multi column selector for the Mistral oven with the Thermo Scientific Surveyor Plus HPLC.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, and MayLab Analytical Instruments, manufacturer of LC and LC-MS multi column selection and column switching system solutions, announce the release of new software control for MayLab's MistraSwitch multi column selector for the Mistral oven with the Thermo Scientific Surveyor Plus HPLC.

The Thermo Scientific Surveyor Plus HPLC is specifically optimized for the most demanding HPLC and LC/MS applications. Short cycle times, high sample capacity, low flow rate performance, and patented LightPipeTM technology in PDA detector have been integrated into one complete system for high-throughput sample processing environments.

MayLab Analytical's MistraSwitch system solution is designed for fully automated selection for up to 10 HPLC columns (for pressure up to 15,000 psi) under temperature control using a Spark Mistral or Mistral Cool column oven. When used with the Thermo Scientific Surveyor Plus HPLC, a variety of different HPLC columns can be under rigorous temperature control and automatically controlled and selected through the Thermo Scientific ChromQuest Chromatography Data System.

"This provides HPLC users with an ideal solution for many chromatography operations including method development and QA/QC," comments Edward C. Long, strategic marketing manager at Thermo Fisher Scientific. "The ChromQuest CDS provides a uniform software interface for all Surveyor Plus HPLC instrument control functions as well as the MistraSwitch."

"The MistraSwitch system solution in combination with Surveyor Plus HPLC and ChromQuest CDS provides the user with highest flexibility and helps saving valuable time", according to Hans Mayrhofer, founder and managing director of MayLab Analytical Instruments.
