Development kits for customization

Our partners can use the following kits to tailor Chromeleon CDS software for our mutual customers’ laboratories:

  • Chromeleon Driver Development Kit (DDK)
    The DDK is available to partner companies for developing third-party instrument control drivers for Chromeleon CDS.

  • Chromeleon Software Development Kit (SDK)
    Based on the Microsoft.NET Framework, the Chromeleon SDK includes extensive online documentation and C# sample code demonstrating many common tasks. The SDK can be used by software developers to add various functionalities to Chromeleon CDS:
  • Develop even more flexibility and custom solutions
  • Directly interface Chromeleon CDS with other software products or extend the user interface
  • Create standalone applications that directly interface your instruments, data, and results
  • Automatically transfer information between Chromeleon CDS and another application
  • Integrate plug-ins that extend the built-in functionality of Chromeleon CDS

The SDK has comprehensive functionality that enables third party applications to:

  • Hide or replace the standard user interface
  • Run samples and manage instrument queues
  • Access data and results
  • Automatically transfer information between Chromeleon CDS and another application
  • Provide specialized post-acquisition analysis

Based on the Microsoft.NET Framework, the Chromeleon SDK includes extensive online documentation and C# sample code demonstrating many common tasks.

A selection of Chromeleon add-ons that have been developed with the SDK:
