Waters Empower 3 chromatography data software

Waters Empower™ 3 chromatography data system (CDS), is a scalable, enterprise-wide platform that can be rapidly deployed to easily fit into existing corporate infrastructure.

One of the most important challenges laboratory scientists and information technology managers face is the need for data management standardisation.  Customers need to support multiple laboratory software and informatics platforms among their labs. Addressing this issue of standardisation, Empower 3 is designed to bring significant value to science driven organisations at the enterprise level.


Specifically, customer benefits of CDS standardisation include reduced training efforts and support resources needed to maintain a single platform. Similarly, customers experience improved internal communication and information exchange amongst fewer software platforms. Finally, a standardised CDS can facilitate more consistent regulatory compliance and complete data integrity through easier software validation and streamlined review/sign off of results.

In addition to a scalable, enterprise-wide CDS platform, Empower 3 offers a variety of usability and workflow enhancements that help streamline customers’ daily workflow and efficiency.   For example, Empower 3 features improved navigation between the review and reporting applications and also allows users to create sample sets post acquisition. This enables more flexibility in processing injections that were acquired individually and also helps with multi-stage and delayed release dissolution testing.

Empower 3 is completely compliant-ready and additional calculation capabilities allow the ability to determine current signal to noise requirements according to regional Pharmacopeias in the United States, EU and Japan.

Previously displayed only in the console in the Empower database, ACQUITY® column usage information is now associated directly with customer injections – this includes information such as column name, serial number, the number of injections on that column, maximum pressure and maximum temperature. This information is tracked for each sample set for automatic and accurate documentation purposes, and is also tracked on a rolling basis so customers can obtain column trending information and also extrapolate and predict lifetime information.
