Chromatopac Integrator

The data processing functionality of the highly-acclaimed Chromatopac line is now even more advanced.
The superior C-R8A Chromatopac Data Processor is equipped with improved automated validation functions and network compatibility.


Inherits the proven Shimadzu Chromatopac algorithms
The numerous peak processing functions and quantitative calculations from previous models (C-R4A, C-R5A, C-R7A) are included in the C-R8A.

Includes automated validation functions
The hardware validation software (accessed with the VP key) supports GLP/GMP and ISO requirements.

Supports full network capability
The C-R8A includes a high speed RS-232C port (19,200 bps) as standard for networking through CLASS-Agent and Chromatopac Manager software programs.

Designed for universal applications
Both novices and experts can make full use of the C-R8A's considerable functionality.

The printer supports the use of AF (Anti-Fade) paper, which can be stored without fading for at least 20 years.
