Clarity software


Clarity software for system control and data acquisition



Clarity from DataApex is an advanced modular software package for data acquisition, data processing and instrument control. Up to four independent LC systems each with up to 12 detectors can be simultaneously connected. Optional ‘Control modules’ provide integrated control of selected instruments, ‘Extensions’ provide specialized functionality for PDA or GPC analysis. Its wide range of data acquisition interfaces (A/D converters, LAN, USB, and RS232) allows connection to virtually any chromatograph.

To familiarise with Clarity a few hands-on sessions are available. Details are in document 195_7010 'Clarity hands-on training'. A number of screen recordings in the tutorial section show how specific tasks are done in Clarity. A demo version is available for download on the DataApex website as well.

It includes a table with concentration levels matching the response with Amount and a calibration curve. Any point can be temporarily suspended in the graph it will be marked with a circle instead of a cross.


Device control

Device control
An extensive list of devices can be controlled by Clarity, operational parameters are stored in method files and chromatograms. It makes methods easily interchangeable between systems.


Sample queue

The Sequence table is a user friendly interface to compose a queue for automated injections. The status of each row is indicated by the colored symbols. Copy, paste, fill down, auto increment and time/date fields for file title are available.


Peak table and chromatogram

Peak table and chromatogram
Users can easily edit acquired chromatograms visually in the graph or through the integration table. The Result tables (Results, Summary, Column Performance, etc.) can be customized to display the data you want to see. The Summary tab displays data from overlaid chromatograms in one summary table.
