UNICORN™ start software
UNICORN start 1.0 is the control software designed for ÄKTA start.
- Data Management: robust database storage with easy access to data, data security, and data integrity.
- Intuitive design: simple and flexible method creation using predefined templates and phases (steps).
- Interactive process picture: enables real-time monitoring of the run and an intuitive way to control the run.
- Easy reporting capabilities: evaluate, compare, and share results. Create and print PDF reports.
29-0187-51UNICORN start software includes four different modules: System Control, Method Editor, Evaluation, and Administration, allowing you to design runs, operate the ÄKTA start instrument, and to evaluate and share results. While ÄKTA start can function as a stand-alone system, UNICORN start software maximizes the performance of the instrument.
Visualize your Run
Monitor your run using the interactive process picture map. This valuable functionality gives you real-time information about the current step, chromatogram, and various curves; flow, gradient, pressure and conductivity curves are displayed, along with fractions.
Simple and Flexible Method Creation
Methods can be created using predefined templates like Affinity, Ion Exchange, Gel Filtration, and Desalting. Customized methods can be created simply by dragging and dropping chromatography phases such as Prime and Equilibration, Sample Application, Wash out Unbound, Elution and Fractionation from the phase library. Methods can be run directly from the System Control module or simply transferred to a USB memory stick and imported into ÄKTA start if the system is being used as a stand-alone unit (i.e., the system is not connected to a computer).
UNICORN start software has an intuitive graphic user interface that enables users to perform operations like controlling flow path, peak integration, and report generation in a single-click.
