Recommended PC requirements depend on number of Clarity Instruments and their configuration. For example running multiple Clarity Instruments simultaneously, using PDA Extension and Agilent ICF control modules, pose higher demands on the processing power. Please, contact us to consult PC configuration suitable for your instrumentation.

Windows Pro/Professional Edition is required for configuring Clarity in regulated environment. For more details see M132 Clarity in Regulated Environment.
