Shimadzu LC Driver for Waters Empower - Features

Seamless control of Shimadzu LC

Shimadzu instrument method editor screen

Shimadzu LC control parameters are set through the Shimadzu instrument method editor embedded in the Empower software. These parameters are stored and handled as standard Empower method files so that the instruments are directly controlled from Empower.

Digital data acquisition for enhanced reliability

Status data plotting screen

In addition to seamless system control, the detector signal is digitally transmitted to the data system. This eliminates the necessity to add an A/D converter for analogue data acquisition, making system validation easier and more robust. Photodiode array detector 3D data analysis and spectral processing are also available through Empower. Furthermore, system status information, such as pump pressures and column oven temperature, may be monitored and recorded along with chromatograms, making your analytical data even more reliable.

Regulatory compliance support

Shimadzu’s LC/GC Drivers for Waters™ Empower™

Full system control, including autosampler control, uses Empower sample set methods, and data processing is integrated with Empower software so that the audit trail functions of Empower software are fully utilized. This gives you full confidence in the compliance of the system to regulations such as GLP/GMP and US FDA 21 CFR Part 11. Waters™ and Empower™ are registered trademarks of Waters in the USA and other countries

Shimadzu LC systems compatible with Empower

Nexera series

It is now possible to control the Shimadzu LC systems including Nexera and i-Series from Waters’ Empower chromatography data system. Experience the advanced features of the Nexera series and LC-2050/LC-2060 such as mobile phase monitoring, dual injection and automated pretreatment programs.

MPM-40 mobile phase monitor with smart devices

Prevent mistakes caused by running out of mobile phase

Using the MPM-40 mobile phase monitor*, it is possible to check levels of mobile phase, autosampler rinse solution etc. in real time (up to 12 bottles). Remaining volumes can be monitored from the Empower control panel or from a smart device. You can receive advance notifications to your PC or smart device if the mobile phase is likely to become depleted, preventing costly mistakes in analysis.



Dual injection function

Analyze one sample in two flow paths simultaneously (dual injection)

Using the dual injection function* of the SIL-40 autosampler series, it is possible to carry out two separate simultaneous analyses on one system, saving space and time. Flow paths can be constructed for a variety of analyses – amino acids, organic acids, sugars, vitamins, positive or negative ions, etc.



Automated pretreatment programs save labor and increase reliability

A range of pretreatment programs for the SIL-40 series includes functions for dilution, addition, co-injection, etc. Automation prevents human error and increases repeatability as well as improving overall workflow efficiency.
