Spark Symbiosis Control

Control module for the Spark Symbiosis sample preparation system

The Spark Symbiosis control module enables direct control of the Spark Symbiosis sample preparation system, which includes Spark HPD (High Pressure Dispenser), Spark ACE (Automatic Cartridge Exchanger) and Spark Alias autosampler instruments. The control is performed over the serial line, LAN or USB, depending on the used communication interface.
Direct control means that the system can be completely controlled from the Clarity environment - all method parameters can be sent to the system directly from the computer, the sequence table can be planned and edited in the Clarity software and the order of the individual cartridges is directed by Clarity. Specific methods may be assigned for different samples in the same sequence and particular method used for the given sample will be saved in the resulting chromatogram.
The Spark Symbiosis system allows to work with Spark HPD, Spark ACE and Spark Alias using the system's internal synchronization, as well as with standalone ACE or HPD devices. It needs the 1.52 or greater firmware revision on the Spark ACE, 1.24 or greater firmware revision on Spark HPD and 1.26 or greater firmware revision of the Spark Alias (User Program must be enabled). It is recommended to check the user manual of the system for its operating principles and restrictions.
