Easy-to-Assess Operating Status and Easy Maintenance

The control panel shown in adaptive software's sample analysis window provides functions for the direct control of Shimadzu i-Series systems. It is equipped with monitoring functions to allow system operating status to be assessed at a glance, and features system checks for monitoring the usage of consumables. As a result, the software can be used for daily inspections of instruments prior to analysis, and for monitoring the operating status during analyses. Shimadzu LC control parameters are set through the instrument method editor embedded in the adaptive software. These stored parameters handled as standard method files of adaptive software.

Proof That the System Always Operates in a Stable Manner

With the i-Series auto-validation function, anyone can follow a set procedure to examine solvent delivery stability, wavelength accuracy, absorbance accuracy, gradient accuracy, the presence of any drift/noise, and other parameters. In addition, a system check function automatically performs routine inspections before using the instrument. It also creates a report indicating system self-diagnostic results and a record of consumables used, such as the total solvent volume delivered by the delivery pump, the number of autosampler injections, and the number of hours the lamp has been illuminated. This makes it easy to accurately determine the operating status.

Creating system check report

Displays procedures, mobile phases, and other information necessary for validation on the screen, which allows you to perform inspections by simply following the instructions. System self-diagnostic results and a record of consumables used can be output from the i-Series Driver.
