Software-controlled operation with visionCATS

The Linomat 5 is controlled by visionCATS, the new generation of HPTLC software. Instrument handling is now easier and more convenient. Simply select a plate format, fill in the sequence table and start working. With visionCATS, the Linomat 5 can be IQ/OQ qualified and used in a cGMP environment.

Operation in stand-alone mode

For those who use the Linomat 5 infrequently stand-alone mode is available. Up to ten methods can be entered either manually via the keypad or downloaded to the instrument from a computer running a licensed visionCATS program. In stand-alone mode the keypad is used to enter application parameters or to select a saved method.
