Chromatography Data System (CDS) is the software program, which automates instrument control, data acquisition, data processing, data filtering, data storage, and database management in various chromatography systems such as Gas Chromatography (GC), High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Supercritical Fluid Chromatography (SFC), and Capillary Electrophoresis (CE). CDS provides multiuser access and multi-instrument control for safe and secure instrument use.
Chromatography Data System Market Drivers
Addition of new features in the existing CDS, to enhance user interface is expected to boost growth of the chromatography data system market. For instance, Data Apex, a chromatography software development company, in July 2018, launched Clarity version 8.0. Chromatography Software, which has advanced features such as excellent performance, cost-effectiveness, and proficient technical support.
Chromatography Data System Market Restraint
Data integrity violations, enforcements, and criminal investigations of companies during audit by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) and failure to meet Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP) by companies is expected to hamper growth of the chromatography data system market. For instance, in January 2016, USFDA sent warning letter to Ipca Laboratories Limited for manipulating the processing parameters used for CDS, in order to obtain approvals for its drug products.
Furthermore, in June 2016, SEKISUI MEDICAL CO., LTD., a Japan-based firm, failed to clear the USFDA and Department of Health and Human Services inspection, due to manipulation in the chromatography data by deleting failed chromatograms, absence of raw data back-up, and nonfunctional CDS.
Chromatography Data System– Regional Analysis
On the basis of region, the global chromatography data system market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.
Geographically, North America is probable to dominate during the forecast period in the chromatography data system market, owing to collaboration strategies adopted by various key players for sophisticated chromatography technologies and analysis software in the region. For instance, in February 2015, PerkinElmer, Inc., collaborated with Waters Corporation to deliver Waters Empower CDS Software and premium instruments in the U.S. market. This software manages multi-vendor data and simplifies data collection, processing, and reporting.
Asia Pacific is estimated to grow with fast rate in the chromatography data system market during the forecast period, owing to launches of new products by key players for better productivity and functionality of chromatography systems. For instance, in February 2018, Shimadzu Corporation of Japan launched Shimadzu gas chromatography (GC) setup, which imbibed Chromeleon 7.2, a CDS software of Thermo Fisher Scientific. Shimadzu GC instrument parameters are set through the protocols embedded in the Chromeleon software. It allows for optimal sample injection system that helps to maximize analytical productivity.
Key players operating in the chromatography data system market are Advanced Chemistry Development, DataApex, Agilent Technologies, Inc., Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc., Gilson Incorporated., PerkinElmer Inc., Chromperfect Chromatography Software, Shimadzu Analytical (India) Pvt. Ltd., SRI Instruments, a dba for Scientific Repair, Inc., a California corporation., Thermo Fisher Scientific, and Waters Corporation.
