Simplification of a mixed analytics laboratory can be challenging to manage where instruments of various detection types are on different software or individual workstations. A Chromatography Data System (CDS) that can expand beyond chromatography and deliver full control for single quadrupole, through triple quadrupole, and even into high resolution accurate mass (HRAM) options can help reduce software and file management, user training and method transfer efforts, and bring mass spectrometry (MS) capabilities into quality functions.

Learn how Thermo Scientific Chromeleon CDS simplifies your laboratory workflows by combining all separation and detection techniques, including the higher sensitivity and richer detection of MS, into a single compliance-ready enterprise (client/server) environment.

What are users saying?
"Chromeleon Software's user-focused design allows our lab to have anyone from a PhD Research Fellow to an intern on instruments ranging from a GC-FID to a UHPLC triple quad mass spectrometry. Chromeleon software lowers the barrier of entry to train new staff allowing us more flexibility and less training time."

- Scientist, Kalsec

Superior MS data processing and automation capabilities

Expand your capabilities

Achieving lab expansion is more than just purchasing new hardware and setting it on a bench. Chromeleon CDS can help integrate new hardware into a larger environment and unify the effort to get users trained and utilizing it.

  • One software to control your LC-MS, GC-MS, and IC-MS systems
  • Configurable MS-specific data views, detection algorithms, and reporting tools to streamline analysis
  • Optimized background processing to support multi-analyte quantitation
  • Integration ready into the connected Ardia Platform that centralizes data access and method sharing across a family of MS software applications
Connect your laboratory

Connect your laboratory

Organization and management of methods, data, reports and more can cost time and effort on the road from method development through routine use. Chromeleon CDS can help connect your system and take advantage of file centralization to speed method transfers and open up data access to all users.
