Clarity Chromatography Software

Clarity is a chromatography data software (CDS) for data acquisition, processing, and instrument control. The acquisition interfaces (LAN, USB, RS232, A/D converters) allow connection to a wide range of GC and LC chromatographs.

Optional control modules provide integrated control of selected instruments such as GCs, LCs, pumps, detectors, autosamplers, etc. Extensions provide functions for specific separation techniques or calculations such as PDA, GPC analysis, Mass spectrometry, or SST. Clarity can run in English, French, German, Russian, Spanish, and Chinese language. Support technicians and developers are close to their users and ready to provide extensive Support from DataApex.

How to integrate Clarity in your lab?

Main features

Measuring

Simultaneous data acquisition from up to four independent chromatographs, each chromatograph can acquire data from up to 32 detectors.

See Clarity configuration examples.

Integration There is an extensive possibility to modify chromatograms. The chromatogram can be changed by entering global parameters or interactively through direct graphic modification of the baseline.
Overlay Simultaneously displays a virtually unlimited number of chromatograms and their mathematical modification; for example, mutual deductions or derivations of any order.
Calibration Internal and external standard calculation methods, calibration of groups of peaks, and reference peaks method for better identification.
Wide range of supported instruments Control modules in Clarity allow users to control various instruments in their lab. See our growing List of supported instruments.
Extensions completing your workflow Clarity Extensions integrates your workflow into one application. GPC calculations, PDA data processing, gas or detailed hydrocarbon analyses according to selected norms, and much more.
Automated measuring support Sequence tables for any set of samples with or without an autosampler.
Postrun Automatically displays, prints, exports, and starts other programs after the completion of a measurement.
Summary result tables Displays and prints selected results from all simultaneously displayed chromatograms.
User settings User selects parameters for peak display and the specification for axes, including color from an extensive array of color settings. Text labels and lines, either as part of the area or anchored to a chromatogram, may also be inserted.
Export Optional exportation of all results, with or without the chromatogram, in various formats, into a file or clipboard.
Import Imports chromatograms or mathematical curves, which have been saved in text or AIA formats, from other programs.
LIMS Clarity offers connectivity with LIMS, both for sample submission and result output. This can be done via convenient ASCII transfers.
Method and calibration history Each chromatogram can easily be displayed under the same conditions as when it was printed, exported, or saved.
Column performance Calculations of peaks in terms of symmetry, efficiency, resolution; all by several methods (tangent, moments, etc.).
Batch Automatically batch processes, displays, exports, or prints any number of chromatograms.
User calculations Users can define custom calculations in the Result and Summary tables. Using the integrated editor, you can create your own columns from original columns and individual mathematical functions.
User accounts Sets up access rights and passwords (including their parameters, e.g., minimum length, validity, etc.). Each user can define his or her own appearance of the software.
Audit trail Records selected events and operations into a special file. Records selected operations directly into a chromatogram.
Electronic signature Each chromatogram can be signed electronically. Signature selection is based on the username or the signature certificate.
Networked Solution

Clarity chromatography software files can be accessed from networked computers using Clarity Offline software. This enables the offline evaluation of chromatograms, development of new methods, and printing reports.

See the Clarity Offline for more details.

Language Localizations available Useful for non-English speakers. At the moment, there are French, German, Russian, Spanish, and Chinese localizations available in a single installation package. Simply switch to your preferred language anytime, try the Clarity DEMO now.
Competitive approach The chromatography market offers many specialized HPLC data systems or GC data systems; these are often provided with the purchased instrument. It is usually complicated to integrate such software into the workflow of the laboratory since they do not enable direct control of additional instruments. Compared to other small scale solutions such as PeakSimple, ChromPerfect, Chrom&Spec, Borwin, Azur, Multichro, or Chrom-Card, Clarity offers a wide range of directly controlled instruments as well as optional Extensions for specific separation techniques. On the other hand, complex solutions with a wide scope of features and scalable design, such as OpenLAB, EZChrom, ChemStation, Chromeleon, TotalChrom, GCSolution, LCSolutions, Galaxie, Atlas, Class-VP, Chromquest, or Empower are quite expensive, which is a limiting factor for many customers. Another drawback of the large solutions is its complexity which imposes high demands on users. Compared to this, Clarity represents a scalable medium-ranged solution with a steep learning curve and competitive prices.
