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 represents the technical basis for supporting non-Thermo Scientific instruments in Chromeleon. It is available to partner companies for developing third party instrument drivers for Chromeleon CDS.

  • Chromeleon Software Development Kit (SDK)
    The SDK can be used by software developers to add various functionalities to Chromeleon CDS. Use this kit to develop even more flexibility and custom solutions. Now you have the tools to directly interface Chromeleon CDS with other software products or extend the user interface. Create standalone applications that directly interface your instruments, data, and results, or 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:

  • HiChromet: Import a chromatogram automatically, compare peaks and determine which integration is the best for each peak. (beyontics)
  • Injection Screening Tool: Search through a DataVault for injections that are completed. (beyontics)
  • Sequence Looper: Run a sequence indefinitely, create new sequences, and new folders after several days. (beyontics)
  • GC compare: Compare peaks of two samples and generate a report based on the differences. (beyontics)
  • Connect to Thermo Scientific Virtuoso Vial Identification System: print your vial labels directly from within Chromeleon CDS. (Thermo Fisher)
  • Connect to Thermo Scientific OMNIC Series software (Thermo Fisher)
  • Connect to SAP (Thermo Fisher)
  • Connect to AppsLab (Thermo Fisher)
