Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) and Shimadzu Corp. today announced
the release of each other’s GC instrument control for their respective
chromatography data systems. The move provides customers in analytical
laboratories with more freedom of choice when selecting a chromatography
Agilent has released drivers for the Shimadzu GC-2010, GC-2010 Plus and
GC-2014 integrating to Agilent’s OpenLAB CDS; Shimadzu has released
drivers to control Agilent 6890, 6850, 7820 and 7890 GC instruments in
Shimadzu’s LabSolutions. These releases are the result of the joint
collaboration—employing RapidControl (RC.NET) instrument
drivers—announced in May 2013 to preserve customers’ investments in
workflows and operating procedures.
“Agilent continues to follow an open-systems approach for the laboratory
to deliver value to our customers,” said Bruce von Herrmann, vice
president and general manager of Agilent’s Software and Informatics
business. “To reduce costs and enhance the customer experience, we are
working with other manufacturers, such as Shimadzu, to enable full and
reliable control of lab instrumentation from any CDS. These new releases
demonstrate that Rapid Control is the predominant industry standard for
analytical instrument control.”
“At Shimadzu, we continue to deploy industry-standard drivers for
instrument control to provide flexible instrumentation and software
solutions for our customers,” said Masahito Ueda, Shimadzu general
manager of the GC & TA Business Unit, Analytical & Measuring Instruments
Division. “The adoption and support of RC.NET drivers provide a more
integrated solution to customers who require a single CDS product to
support seamless multi-vendor control of all instruments in their
The companies’ move expands control of each other’s instruments to gas
chromatography. Since mid-2013, Agilent’s OpenLAB CDS has supported
Shimadzu’s Nexera and Prominence HPLC lines, and Shimadzu’s LabSolutions
CDS has supported Agilent’s 1100, 1200, 1260 and 1290 Series instruments.
