Control Nexis GC-2030 and HS-20/HS-10 Using Chromeleon 7.2
Control Shimadzu Nexis GC-2030 and HS-20/HS-10 Headspace sampler.
Now Thermo Scientific™ Chromeleon™ 7.2 Chromatography Data System (hereinafter called Chromeleon) Software can control the Nexis GC-2030 and HS-20/HS-10 Headspace sampler with the driver software. Shimadzu GC-2030 and HS-20/HS-10 instrument parameters can be set seamlessly via the Chromeleon 7.2.
The ePanel shown in the Chromeleon provides functions for the direct control of Shimadzu GC-2030 and HS-20/HS-10. It is also equipped with monitoring functions to allow system operating status to be assessed at a glance as well as a system check function for monitoring the usage of consumables by various instruments. After completing the sequence analysis, it is also possible to shutdown the Nexis GC-2030 automatically and safely by the shutdown function. As a result, this software supports total from inspection before analysis to stop of equipment after analysis Also, Shimadzu instrument control parameters are set through the method editor embedded in the Chromeleon software. These parameters are stored and handled as standard Chromeleon method files.
Maximize Productivity with Optimum Sample Injection
In addition to standard liquid analysis using an AOC-20i autoinjector, the following types of analysis are also supported.
- Simultaneous analysis of two lines using a dual injection system
- Successive switching between liquid and headspace analysis by installing both AOC-20i and HS-20 units
This optimal sample injection system helps maximize analytical productivity.
