Current Version: VISIONCATS 2.3 NEW!
visionCATS stands for ease of use and intuitive simplicity. The software organizes the workflow of HPTLC, controls the involved CAMAG instruments, and manages data.
The easy to navigate user interface effectively guides the user through the chromatographic process – from definition of samples and substances to reporting of results. Simply select one of the default methods and start working: fill in the sequence table, select a mobile phase and the derivatization reagent.
If necessary modify detection parameters. Then visionCATS will guide you. Creating your own method is easy as well: just select the desired steps. The new sample-oriented approach allows for creating virtual plates from tracks originating from different plates, e.g. for batch-to-batch comparison or long-term stability testing.
With visionCATS relevant samples can be located easier and faster than ever: a powerful search tool within the file explorer that includes extended preview functionalities enables the user to easily search for text and date, samples, methods, and analysis files.
Image Comparison Viewer
With the Image Comparison Viewer tracks originating from the same or different plates and/or different detection modes can be compared on the same screen side by side.
Image Enhancement Tools
visionCATS supports low-noise, high-dynamic-range imaging (HDRI) and includes a comprehensive set of Image Enhancement Tools.
Scanning Densitometry and Spectral Evaluation
Following their chromatographic separation substances on the plate can be measured by Scanning Densitometry. Recording of UV/Vis spectra and their comparison with reference spectra allows identification.
To determine the substance concentration in a sample after densitometric or image analysis, five different quantification functions (e.g. linear and polynomial regression modes) are available. Several scanning steps and up to five different evaluations can be performed in one analysis file.
HPTLC Method Library
For seamless import of validated methods and images of standards and reference materials, visionCATS provides a free of charge HPTLC Method Library for licensed users.
visionCATS supports compliance with cGMP/cGLP and 21 CFR Part 11.
State-of-the-art Software Architecture
visionCATS is based on a client/server system, enabling scalability from a single workstation to a multi-user lab network.
