Fully Automated Method Scouting

 

 

Leave Your Method and Analysis Scheduling to Method Scouting System

 

Usually when method scouting, a method has to be created every time the column or mobile phase is switched. For example, 100 combinations of analytical conditions leads to 100 method files, not only creating a huge amount of labor but also increasing the risk of operational mistakes. Method Scouting System is intuitive to operate and can automate these changes in analytical conditions, allowing you to use your resources more efficiently.

Labor-Saving Mobile Phase Blending

The mobile phase blending function in Method Scouting System allows you to quickly adjust the salt concentration, pH, and organic solvent ratio on-line using only a few pre-prepared solvents, and quickly search for suitable conditions. This significantly reduces the time required to prepare and evaluate mobile phases. The integrated i-Series LC system can also perform different types of mobile phase blending, two for water-based and two for organic solvents, using a low-pressure gradient.

Labor-Saving Mobile Phase Blending

Improved Operating Rates with Automation of Analysis Sequences

Purge conditions and equilibration during automatic switching of mobile phases and columns are key issues in method scouting. With Method Scouting Solution, these and all laboratory operations can be performed automatically based on conditions set in advance, from automated control to system checks and system shutdown.

Optimization and Robustness Evaluation

Simple to Set Conditions for Optimization

After choosing the columns and mobile phases, gradient conditions need to be optimized. Using Method Scouting Solution, it is simple to create an analysis schedule which changes these conditions automatically.

Simple to Set Conditions for Optimization

 

Efficient Robustness Evaluations

Method Scouting Solution can import any experimental design (Excel® format) and execute the analysis schedule. It can finely adjust analytical parameters such as ow rate and oven temperature to streamline robustness assessments that require multiple runs.

 Efcient Robustness Evaluations

 

Improve Efficiency Even With Standard LCs

Operational efficiency can be improved even with a standard hardware configuration in the optimization and robustness evaluation stages that do not require automatic switching of mobile phases and columns. Method Scouting Solution is compatible with LCs that do not include mobile phase or column switching valves, so you can use your current LC for more efficient method development.

Seamless Method Migration with LabSolutions™ CS

Once the optimal conditions are determined, they may be applied as general-purpose analysis conditions and transferred to other working departments. The data needs to be managed over long time periods and retrieved smoothly when needed. The combination of LabSolutions CS and Method Scouting Solution not only makes the method development process more efficient, but also streamlines a series of workflow tasks from reporting results to other departments to transferring methods.
