A data system consists of three primary elements:
- Data processing package
- Acquisition software and electronics
Introduction of a new PC to an older instrument provides extraordinary gains.
Consider these PC features:
Operating system, Windows 8®, Windows 7®, Windows
Vista®, or Windows XP.
- Large hard drives for data storage, e.g., 1TB and greater.
- Fast, multi-core processors.
- Powerful but easy networking, usually built in.
- Versatile local and network printer support.
- Data archival media such as CD-R and DVD±R.
- Large, eye-friendly displays.
Older data systems based on PC technology, usually cannot take advantage of today's
PCs, due to hardware timing issues or incompatible interface buses. Even without
these issues, getting an old MS-DOS, Windows 3.x, or Windows 9x based system to run a
new PC is usually difficult, and typically isn't worthwhile since the data system
A replacement data system needs to have access to a strong data processing package. Vx Acquisition
can generate Agilent MSD ChemStation, Varian WorkStation, and Andi NetCDF data files.
This allows your laboratory to choose the optimal data processing package.
The heart of the data system is its acquisition package. The Adron data system is
supports a wide range of mass spectrometers, chromatographs and auto samplers. These
components can be mixed and matched as required. For different instrument
configurations, our software offers a consistent user interface.
Our data system provides versatile instrument control, including computer control of
many chromatographs and autosamplers. (See our instrument page
for supported instruments.)
