EluSwitch System Solution

The EluSwitch system solution is designed for fully automated selection for up to 10 mobile phases. The system consists of one MayLab MS 5000 valve drive including the valve of your choice and the MS 5000 interface.

Software drivers for chromatography data systems must be ordered separately.

EluSwitch Features Summary

  • Wide range of valves with different bore diameters and ports available
  • Valve switching speed less than 100 ms
  • Patented microprocessor controlled valve actuating
  • RS 232 or USB control
  • Very rugged, reliable and laboratory proven construction

EluSwitch Interfacing Chromatography Data Systems

Fully automated mobile phase selection within a chromatography data system is the most efficient way for unattended and overnight operation when using different methods with different mobile phases.

Software drivers are available for:

  • Agilent ChemStation 16 bit and 32 bit
  • Agilent EZChrom Elite V 3.1.4 and higher
  • Dionex Chromeleon V 6.4 and higher
  • AB Sciex Analyst V 1.4.1 and higher
  • Thermo Scientific ChomQuest V 4.1 and higher
  • Thermo Scientific Xcalibur V 1.4 and higher
  • Agilent EZChrom Elite V 3.1.4 and higher

The drivers named above are designed to report every error (e.g. faulty valve) through message boxes and will stop the actual running method immediately.

EluSwitch and GLP (Good Laboratory Practice)

The actual valve position of the MS 5000 valve drive is constantly reported to the MS 5000 Interface and to the driver software. Each switching cycle is recorded in a log file, including action, time and date stamp due to GLP reasons for each day. By this means the systems activities will be manageable and reproducible for the operator.

EluSwitch and Valve Configurations

For mobile phase selection the approved VICI Cheminert low pressure stream selector valve series available in different bore diameters and in 1/16” or ¼”-28 fitting is used in combination with the MayLab MS 5000 valve drive and the MS 5000 Interface.

The EluSwitch system solution is available for selecting 4, 6, 8 or 10 mobile phases.

Included in Delivery

The EluSwitch system solution comes as a ready to use system and consists of the following items:

  • MS 5000 valve drive with 4, 6, 8 or 10 port VICI Cheminert low pressure valves
  • MS 5000 Interface (Mobile phase selection controller)
  • 1/16” or ¼”-28 PEEK Fittings for VICI Cheminert valve (depending on valve type)
  • RS 232 cable for connecting MS 5000 interface to PC
  • Cable for connecting the MS 5000 valve drive to MS 5000 interface
  • Instruction Manual
