The Thermo Scientific iFast Developer's Tool Kit combines the flexibility of scripting with the ease of use of graphical programming to make recipe creation faster and easier than ever before.
The iFast Developer's Tool Kit enables operators to quickly and easily create new or modify existing recipes to fit their specific needs. Recipes are edited within a new intuitive graphical environment, enabling faster learning of the programming environment as well as an easier understanding of existing recipes. Within the iFast Developer's environment, the operator is able to control column settings, detector settings, stage motion and position, patterning and site alignments with logical operation and looping. This enables a high degree of customization to match specific application requirements.
iFast Recorder is included with iFast Developer's Tool Kit allowing to record recipes interactively on an instrument both for unattended operation as well as the creation of a baseline recipe for further enhancements with the Developer's Tool Kit.
