Clarity software comparison table

This comparison table shows the differences between our three key Clarity software solutions.


Clarity is a chromatography data software for instrument control, data acquisition, and processing. It enables users to acquire data from up to four independent chromatographs with up to 32 detectors. Optional extensions allow access to specialized techniques. Clarity provides a complete solution, including tools for working in regulated environments (according to 21 CFR Part 11).

Clarity Lite is a simplified version of Clarity that provides data acquisition from one chromatograph using one A/D converter with up to four detectors sharing a common time base. With its reduced set of functions, Clarity Lite is an inexpensive solution for non-regulated environments. Clarity Lite can be upgraded to full Clarity at any time.

Clarity Offline allows users to evaluate and process data, prepare methods, and create reports. This version cannot acquire data and communicate with instruments, but it can share data and access projects of the two previous solutions. Clarity Offline is convenient for working outside of the lab when connection to devices is not necessary.
