Milford, MA ( August 28, 2002) - Waters Corporation announced that it is shipping Empower Software - a powerful, and flexible, Chromatography Data System that offers new capabilities in chemical analysis and separations science technology. Empower has been met by a groundswell of customer support, signifying it as an evolutionary step in chromatography data software. Market interest is attributable to a program architecture that creates an intuitive user environment (by aligning product features with the skill level of operators) that enhances the workflow capabilities of the lab.
"We are excited about reaching this significant milestone, particularly since Empower Software has been embraced so quickly by industry scientists," said Art Caputo, President of the Waters Division of Waters Corporation. "Their reaction to Empower confirms that our design approach - an architecture that streamlines project management while ensuring quality data production - is on the mark. As well, Empower improves a company's regulatory compliance profile under a secure, reduced administration framework."
In collaboration with its customers, Waters' has designed a product that meets today's requirements for efficient lab operation. This calls for applying available resources to meet the goals of the business, without adding complexity. Empower Software can operate as a single point solution or within the enterprise-wide network, using a common server to store and process data. The combination of intuitive interfaces, database integration and industry-leading regulatory compliance features (e.g., audit trails and application security) promise to make Empower Software the industry standard.
One of the first companies to install Empower Software is Innopharm Inc., a leader in providing quality innovative analytical and regulatory services to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and health food industries. Innopharm Inc. purchased Empower Software to support their chromatography efforts throughout the entire laboratory operation.
