Moderate instrument.
Rating: 2.3

  • Application Area:Purity check, reaction monitoring

"This instrument was donated to us by a local company and was claimed to have seen minimal usage since its purchase. From the outsidee the instrument has a fairly modern look and some unique designs. The face plate and many access port covers are magnetically held in place which makes accessing the insides very easy. The 6-position column switcher makes method development easy. The control software (Chromera) somewhat mimics Waters Empower in that it is layered and modular which allows configuration of multiple combinations of instrument modules, run conditions, and processing parameters to suite the needs. Initial learning and navigation can present a steep learning curve, though. The hardware design is average, loosely represents Waters 600 series HPLC: things do work, but the performance won't give you a WOW. Interfacing with the computer was done through a USB-to-multiple-serial-port-box which suggests the electronics design could be fairly old (note: modules in a newer version use a USB hub for interconnection and computer uplink). The durability is questionable: within half a year the degasser failed and the pump is giving an error indicator. This could have something to do with the fact the instrument was not new when we first had it, but the failure rate was higher than expected. Communication with the sales team has been very fast, but inquiries to technical support can be very slow."

Reasonable instrument
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Routine analysis of synthetic samples

"The instrument has a modern look and there are quite a few well considered designs such as the magnetic door attachment and PC-style soft power button. The column oven is roomy and the 6-position column switcher is a great tool for method development needs. There are things less desirable, though. The instrument interconnection is a mess, compared to Agilent's single CAN cable to carry all control and data signals between the modules, and a single LAN cable to communicate with the PC, PerkinElmer's Flexar uses RS232 to communicate with the PC, and Contact Closure to talk to other modules. To circumvent the requirement for large number of serial ports, a multi-port USB-to-Serial hub is used. So at the back of the instrument you have a jungle of cables. In their more recent design they replaced the RS232 port with a USB port. But instead of taking advantage of the daisy-chain capability of the USB standard, they still went for the 1-to-8 USB hub "spider" at the back of the instrument. One advantage of the old style interconnection method, though, is the capability to use other vendor's modules, so it is easy to salvage old instruments and give them a second life - a big plus in cash-strapped academic and new start-up settings. The software (Chromera) is quite modern-looking, and is more catered to regulated environment. It uses Oracle database to store the data and is supposedly fully traceable. It will require some learning if you are more used to ChemStation, but it's not too bad."

The need for high performance and reliability are a given for labs that run samples on liquid chromatography instruments. In addition, there are increased efficiency and testing demands across all types of labs that run routine analyses. That makes our proven, rugged and reliable Flexar HPLC system the perfect choice when you need fast cycle times, reproducibility and low carryover. With its elegant streamlined interface, our Flexar LC is easy to use and simplifies your day-to-day processes so you can focus on your applications. Flexar LC provides two chromatography data system (CDS) options, the powerfully easy-to use Chromera® CDS software or TotalChrom® for either single workstation or enterprise-wide control and regulatory compliance.

It’s easy to design precisely the Flexar HPLC system you need for fast, sensitive performance that enables reliable, repeatable sample testing you can count on.
