the DataApex company has released Clarity software version 8.0. This update to any older version of Clarity is free of charge for all users with hardware key and can be downloaded by registered users using this link.
This new version presents many improvements to the design and functionality of the Clarity station. Among the biggest changes are:
- Graphically enhanced user interface
We have redesigned several Clarity windows to better fit user's workflow. The design changes are most visible in main Clarity window and Instrument window, but can be also visible in Method Setup, Chromatogram, Calibration, Data Acquisititon, Device Monitor and Sequence windows. All Clarity icons were also redrawn with multiple resolutions to better fit different font size settings.
- Method Handling
Instrument window now serves as an analysis overview mostly, and method handling has been fully moved to Method Setup dialog. It is now impossible to send or measure with unsaved method, ensuring full method traceability even outside of the GLP mode.
- Global Audit Trail
A new audit trail log is available in Clarity, logging important station events over all days and station starts. It is thus much easier to track station and Instrument accesses over longer periods of time.
- Increased number of ISTD standards
We have increased maximum number of ISTD standards from 5 to 10. Along with that several other improvements regarding ISTD standards happened including their exports, prints and user column calculations.
- End of Windows XP support
Clarity 8.0 is no longer supported on Windows XP, operating system unsupported by Microsoft for more than four years - it can't be installed on the operating system. Users on Windows XP should keep using version 7.4.1.
- New Control modules:
- CTC PAL3 System control via ICF has been added in Testing state
- Ecom ECF2000 series fraction collector control module has been added in Testing state
- HTA HT1500L autosampler control module has been added in Testing state
Several other Control modules have been updated.
