New control option maximizes UHPLC or HPLC productivity via seamless hardware/software interface; Driver available free of charge to all new and existing Corona detector customers
CHELMSFORD, Mass., May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Integrating a Corona ultra UHPLC detector with a Waters ACQUITY UPLC(R) or Alliance(R) HPLC system is easy thanks to a new Empower 2/Corona detector instrument-control software driver. ESA Biosciences, Inc., a Magellan Biosciences company and leader in novel HPLC systems that improve results for pharmaceutical development and QA/QC, life science, and analytical-chemistry customers worldwide, announced that the driver for Waters' chromatography control and data-analysis platform is available free of charge to new and existing customers. The software driver comes standard with all new Corona detectors. The driver can also be used with ESA's Corona CAD(R) and Corona Plus detectors.

"The development of this driver had its genesis in customer labs, since so many have standardized on both the ESA Corona and Waters platforms. Customers asked for it, and we were pleased to work with Waters to deliver," said Jasmine Gruia-Gray, PhD, president of ESA's life science tools business. "Our product-development goal with the Corona ultra was to make it work seamlessly with the leading U/HPLC brands to help customers streamline their processes, improve productivity, and take full advantage of the power and capabilities inherent in these high-performance systems. The detector is rugged and designed to fit with the other U/HPLC components anywhere within the stack -- no additional bench space is necessary. Now, with the Empower 2 - Corona detector instrument control software, customers can also have single-point system management and control."
Besides excellent sensitivity, the Corona ultra shows consistent inter-analyte response independent of chemical structure. This breakthrough instrument can effectively detect a wide diversity of chemical structures and important classes of molecules -- from small organic molecules, proteins and peptides, to ions, carbohydrates, lipids, and polymers. The Corona ultra makes methods development, validation, and transfer fast and easy for a wide range of life-science research applications and industries: pharmaceutical, chemical, polymer, food and beverage, biofuel, oils, petrochemical, and more. Suited for analytical R&D scientists looking for improved throughput and resolution as well as for those in manufacturing QC requiring real-time quality control, Corona ultra ensures you see the complete analytical picture.
