Empower 2 chromatography data management software acquires, manages, processes, reports and distributes data generated by ACQUITY UPLC and Alliance systems, as well as third-party instruments. The system monitors chromatographic results, compares them to predefined limits and responds appropriately to any condition. Integration with NuGenesis SDMS and eLab Notebook software is designed to make data transfer transparent. The environment allows multi-tasking among integrated applications and real-time decision making. It also provides audit trail documentation options such as pre-defined lists, comment fields or yes/no parameters to automatically validate any change in order to maintain compliance.
