Agilent Technologies Introduces New Lab Software with Enhanced Data Review Capabilities for Complex Samples

OpenLAB CDS Provides Faster Throughput and Insight into Chemical, Petrochemical, Other Complex Samples

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 8, 2014

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced an enhanced version of OpenLAB CDS: Peak Explorer for single-click peak integration and intelligent reporting. These newly added features boost sample throughput for petrochemical, chemical and other industry laboratories processing large numbers of complex samples.

"Agilent continues to expand OpenLAB CDS to deliver time and cost savings to help labs achieve greater productivity," said Thomas Schmidt, OpenLAB CDS product manager at Agilent. "The new release of OpenLAB CDS dramatically reduces the time needed to review complex data, manually re-integrate peaks and view report results."

Complex samples containing hundreds of peaks often require time-consuming data review and manual integration. Peak Explorer is a new OpenLAB CDS data visualization module that speeds review of complex chromatographic data. It enables users to browse multiple sample runs containing multiple peaks-including entire sequences-rapidly, in one data review window.

Using patented OpenLAB CDS Data Analysis peak integration software, users can manually integrate peaks with a single mouse-click. As there are no changes to the integration algorithm, historic results can be compared.

OpenLAB CDS intelligent reporting features intuitive drag-and-drop chromatography reporting, making it easy to create reports without transferring data to other software, such as Microsoft Excel.

Intelligent reporting is expanded to provide even more ways to tailor reports to specific laboratory workflows. Now included is support for all types of calibration curves, and new options for report formatting, annotating chromatograms, defining tables and fields, creating charts and importing data from other applications. A software maintenance agreement entitles all customers to these enhancements at no additional cost.

OpenLAB CDS is part of the industry-leading OpenLAB Suite of software products designed to capture, analyze and share scientific information throughout its lifecycle, across the laboratory and the enterprise.
