The latest release visionCATS 4.0 features the following updates:


  • Technology update
    • .NET
    • Microsoft® SQL Server® 2022 Express
    • Increased speed
    • Improved security
    • Updated Method Library website
  • Internal Standard
    • A new Advanced Option is available
  • Extended linearity
    •  TLC Scanner 4 and TLC Visualizer step parameters allow to specify the Profile representation mode between two options: Classic and Extended Linearity
  • Comparison improvements
    • General improvements were performed to comparison files (third group, new sorting/grouping options). These improvements are designed to facilitate the usage of complementary developing solvents (CDS).
  • Global lists improvements
    • Many new features have been added to the Global lists editor and the usage of global lists items. In particular, naming guidelines have been introduced to control how names are defined and displayed. Furthermore, built-in solvents have been corrected.
  • Impurity test
    • In method and analysis files, there is a new Impurity test tab which can be used to perform sample image checks against a reference track in order to detect impurities.
    • Many improvements were performed to HPTLC PRO SYSTEM configuration and details windows. In particular, the History tab now includes a Table display mode.
  • Other improvements
    • Limit exposure time for Visualizer HDR Images
    • Enhanced installation report
    • Documentation-only analysis
    • The new client profiles application allows the visionCATS client to switch between servers
    • To disambiguate cases in controlled environments, visionCATS now differentiates an abort (performed by the user) from an interruption (caused by an error).

Breaking changes:

  • End of support TLC Visualizer (first generation): the instrument will not be detected, please use instead TLC Visualizer 3 (or TLC Visualizer 2).

  • End of support TLC Scanner 3: the instrument will not be detected, please use TLC Scanner 4 instead.

  • End of support for visionCATS before version 2.5: Importing files or upgrading a whole installation from before version 2.5 is no longer supported. Consequently, legacy reports (reports created before version 2.5) are not displayed anymore.

  • End of support for Windows Server 2012 R2: visionCATS is not anymore supported on Windows Server 2012 R2.

  • For consistency reasons (duplication of functionalities of the Main explorer view), the Project Explorer toolbox has been removed.
