CHRONOS controls sample preparation and analysis in a time efficient and intelligent way.

During sample preparation, samples are often processed sequentially one after the other. This leads to waiting times during which, among other things, the chromatographs are not used. In addition, different devices and software for control, processing and evaluation must be operated. CHRONOS, the master of time, organizes parallel processes and combines sample preparation and analysis in one user interface.

Parallel processes in sample preparation

CHRONOS controls sample preparation and analysis in such a way that the sample preparation of several samples is nested. This increases the utilization of the instrument while maintaining the time margins of each individual sample preparation. A user-friendly interface minimizes the number of parameters that need to be changed depending on the context. The relevant values are recorded in tabular form and can be changed by the user. In this way, a complete sample list can be created conveniently in just a few steps. Fixed parameters can be adjusted in the method editor if required. The sample list for autosampler control is linked to that of the data system, so that the user only has to manage one sample list. CHRONOS is therefore particularly suitable for complex multi-stage sample preparation procedures.
