Product News: New Automation Control Software Drives Laboratory Automation Integration...

02 Feb 2009

Velocity11, an Agilent Technologies company, has released a new version of its popular VWorks Automation Control Software.

The new version of VWorks is a complete scalable software solution that integrates and controls scheduling for disparate devices from a variety of vendors in robotics, liquid handling, microplate reading, microplate washing and others. Through driving laboratory automation integration through the discovery process - VWorks enables life science enterprises to maximise throughput, create quality leads sooner and lower support burden with a single robust and versatile automation platform.

An intuitive protocol editor combined with powerful device interfaces allows even novice users to quickly design protocols; while a background JavaScript engine and the IWorks development interface provide the total flexibility needed by expert users and system developers. At its core, VWorks is built upon a proven event-driven scheduler and innovative error handler, allowing scientists to focus on the needs of their assay rather than the automation. The new version of VWorks offers full 21CFR Part11 compliance support, making it the optimal solution for applications covered in FDA guidelines.
