No, SCIEX will not sell the driver with their instrument. Contact your local Thermo Fisher sales representative and request a quote.

The existing 32 Karat methods cannot be directly imported into Chromeleon CDS, but the variables can easily be populated through the guided instrument method wizard as the similar epanel design with the same terminology/nomenclature facilitates easy copying over of existing methods.

It is often preferred by end users to only have 1 instrument per controller requiring a Class 3 Instrument license. However, up to 4 systems can be configured with additional Class 3 licenses, of which, up to 2 systems can perform 3D data acquisition providing a Spectral license is also purchased.
