Symbion Systems has released its SDI-FMX driver for the Axiom Analytical FMX series of fibre-optic multiplexers, which are used in applications such as near-infrared and UV-visible spectroscopy.
FMX multiplexers enable multiple spectroscopic probes or flow cells to be coupled to a single FTIR or dispersive spectrometer.
The SDI-FMX driver provides standard computerised control of a multiplexer while allowing its operation to be synchronised with that of the spectrometer and ancillary I/O devices by means of the full complement of Symbion-DX and Symbion-RX capabilities.
Symbion-DX and RX provide standardised platforms for controlling a range of spectrometers and other analytical instruments.
In addition, they feature extensive data manipulation and application development capabilities as well as the ability to communicate with numerous third-party programs and enterprise-wide data systems.
In short, Symbion-DX and RX streamline the development of comprehensive analytical methods encompassing instrument and sample system control, data analysis, process trending, database archiving, and reporting to enterprise-wide data systems.
Each method is permanently stored in the Symbion database and is under full revision control, compliant with 21 CFR Part 11.
Once validated, a method can be recalled from the database and downloaded for deployment at multiple instrumentation locations.
