Agilent Technologies and Bruker are to provide customers with more choice when selecting a chromatography data system for their laboratories.

The companies will exchange information for the development of instrument drivers for their respective gas chromatographs.

This means that both firm’ GC systems may be interfaced and controlled by Agilent’s OpenLAB Chromatography Data System or Bruker’s Compass CDS.

Bruce von Herrmann, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Software and Informatics Business, said: “We are a leading proponent of open systems for the laboratory, and this collaboration with Bruker increases the availability of open system options for our customers.”

OpenLAB CDS software will be able to support Bruker’s 3000- and 400-series gas chromatographs, including Bruker’s SCION 436 and 456 models.

Compass CDS software drivers will support Agilent’s 5890, 6890, 7890 and similar gas chromatographs by the end of this year.

“Bruker is dedicated to providing our customers with the flexibility and versatility they need to address modern analytical challenges,” said Joe Anacleto, vice president of Bruker Daltonics Applied, Industrial and Clinical Research Business Unit.
