Person Person Nakamoto, Akira (Shimadzu 201504– Board Chairma before CEO)

Shimadzu Corporation (Kyoto, Japan; President: Akira Nakamoto) has released LabSolutions CS, a chromatography data system that is able to control 1100, 1200, 1260, and 1290 series high-performance liquid chromatograph (HPLC) systems manufactured by Agilent Technologies, Inc. (Agilent).

On May 29, 2013, Shimadzu agreed with Agilent to mutually exchange instrument control drivers in order to enable the integrated control of analytical instruments from both companies. Based on that agreement, this new product allows analytical laboratories that use a mix of Shimadzu HPLCs and gas chromatographs (GC) and Agilent HPLCs to perform analysis using unified software. LabSolutions CS integrates the analysis laboratory and office to allow access to analytical instruments, such as HPLCs and GCs, from any computer on the network, and to perform control, analysis monitoring, and data analysis. In addition, the LabSolutions CS database enables central management of all analysis data.

LabSolutions CS features a new multi-data reporting capability, which enables analysis result reports to be easily created in a familiar operating environment without the need for Microsoft Excel®. The easy-to-use, high-performance LabSolutions series, in addition to providing integrated instrument control, automating analysis steps, and supporting report creation, achieves data management for a wide range of instruments.

Main Features

(1) Support for Agilent HPLC Systems

In addition to Shimadzu HPLC and GC systems, the LabSolutions CS chromatography data system offers control of Agilent 1100, 1200, 1260, and 1290 series HPLC systems. This unified software and simple user interface allows users to control Shimadzu GC and HPLC and Agilent HPLC systems and easily migrate their analysis environment to LabSolutions CS.
The LabSolutions CS can also perform integrated data management of a wide range of Shimadzu analytical instruments, such as LC/MS, GC/MS, UV, and balances, thus enabling centralized management of laboratory data using a single software platform.

(2) Support for Multi-Data Report Creation

LabSolutions CS features improved multi-data reporting capabilities and now allows creation of reports that combine data from various instruments in a familiar operating environment without using Microsoft Excel®. Verified report templates for system suitability tests, content uniformity tests, elution tests, and other tests are provided. Templates can also be freely customized. In addition, change management by audit trail functionality reduces the customer validation load.

By controlling Agilent HPLC systems and enhancing reporting capabilities, the LabSolutions CS, as an integrated data analysis system for the control of analytical instruments and analysis data management, aims to improve productivity in analysis laboratories.
