PerkinElmer to Integrate Agilent Software with its GC Systems

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – PerkinElmer said today that it will develop a software interface that will allow users of Agilent’s chromatography data system to control PerkinElmer’s gas chromatographs.

PerkinElmer said that researchers using Agilent’s EZChrom Elite chromatography data system will be able to use the interface to control PerkinElmer's Clarus line of gas chromatographs, including the 600, 500, and 400 models.

The company said that the software will enable EZChrom Elite users in pharmaceutical and petrochemical markets, as well as other industries, to use the Clarus systems with their existing networked installations.

The company expects the software interface to be available in July.
