Agilent Signs Software Co-Marketing Agreement with ACD/Labs

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Agilent Technologies and Advanced Chemistry Development said today that they have agreed to co-market ACD/Labs’ AutoChrom method-development software with Agilent’s ChemStation instrument-control software for its HPLC, Rapid Resolution LC, and LC/MS systems.
 
AutoChrom can perform combinations of column, solvent, and buffer screening experiments, as well as automatic method optimization, the companies said. When experiments are complete, the data are automatically transferred from the ChemStation control software back to AutoChrom for processing and interpretation.
 
ACD/AutoChrom for ChemStation supports Agilent 1100, 1200, and 1200 SL Series liquid chromatographs; and model G1946 and G1956 mass spectrometers.
 
The companies said they expect support for Agilent 6100 Series mass spectrometers to be available in the fourth quarter of 2008.
