visionCATS 2.0 – next generation software for qualitative and quantitative HPTLC analysis

publication date: Apr 28, 2015
author/source: Camag


visionCATS stands for ease of use and intuitive simplicity.

visionCATSThe new software organizes the workflow of HPTLC and controls all involved CAMAG instruments. The easy-to-navigate user interface guides effectively through the chromatographic process - from analysis definition to analysis reporting.

As state-of-the-art software, visionCATS is based on a client-server system offering enormous flexibility to the number of instruments and users that are working together and enabling access to the same data for all members of a work group. Thanks to the sample-oriented approach, locating relevant samples is easier and faster than ever: a powerful search routine finds any previous samples, methods, and analysis files. The visionCATS file explorer features extended preview functionalities: by clicking any explorer item, a preview of the file content is displayed.
Controlled with visionCATS, the CAMAG TLC Visualizer supports low noise, high dynamic range images (HDRI). The fully integrated image comparison viewer allows for comparison of tracks originating from different plates and different detection modes on the same screen side by side. Samples can be rearranged and compared to reference substances or samples, independent of their plate origin. The comprehensive set of image enhancement tools exploits the TLC Visualizer’s full potential. Sophisticated algorithms guarantee highest image quality for identification of even the weakest zones.

When connected with the TLC Scanner visionCATS allows for quantitative evaluation of each individual substance on a plate. For the determination of substance concentration in a sample, five different quantification functions are available. Several scanning steps and up to five evaluations can be performed in multiple plate states. Each scanning step may contain a single wavelength scan, a scan at multiple wavelengths with up to 31 selected wavelengths or a combination of measurements in absorption and fluorescence detection mode.
For analysts using HPTLC for identification of plant materials visionCATS offers break-through support with the HPTLC Method Library for seamless import of validated methods. Licensed users can download library files and import them into their own database.

visionCATS 2.0 supports compliance with the 21 CFR Part 11 and cGMP requirements.
