Spectrometer integration with chromatography software


Microsaic’s 4000 MiD compact mass spectrometer is now integrated with SCPA’s preparative data and control software

Microsaic Systems, developer of chip-based mass spectrometry instruments, is collaborating with SCPA to integrate Microsaic’s 4000 MiD compact mass spectrometer with SCPA’s universal PrepCon 5 preparative data and control software.

SCPA is a German developer of specialist software and hardware components needed for chromatography applications in research laboratories.

The PrepCon 5 software can now be used in conjunction with the 4000 MiD to control all functional aspects of the instrument’s operation, including pumps, motor switch valves, autosamplers, detectors and fraction racks in any combination.

In addition, the simple user interface allows the current status of the system to be monitored at any time.

Glenn Tracey, Microsaic’s Chief Operating Officer, commented: “The flexibility and modular structure of PrepCon 5 allows it to be adapted to any user’s system.

This universal capability enhances the usability of Microsaic’s 4000 MiD technology, particularly with non-specialist users and appeals to the wider base of chemists wanting more deterministic approaches to their preparative work for chemical analyses.”
