Implementation and roll-out of ChromX in your DSP
ChromX is typically implemented as a desktop application and executed by the experts at your site. Comprehensive training and consultancy may help your team to get started quickly. As an alternative, the technology can also be utilized by making use of GoSilico’s contract modeling service. If you consider getting started with ChromX, we can offer you an off-location live demo and a short introduction to ChromX. For more information on how to get ChromX, see Try ChromX.
A ChromX modeling project typically starts with a software training course followed by a license purchase including free technical support and monthly software updates. Additionally, different service packages are available for on-demand project support or co-modeling of the first projects.
To help you get started quickly with ChromX, we provide a comprehensive user’s guide and a set of very detailed tutorials that can be followed step-by-step. Those can also be found in the ChromX Help section and significantly help to understand how to use ChromX.
ChromX is designed to run on normal PCs and work stations. It mainly needs CPU performance and makes use of the available cores. An Intel Xeon® is not needed, an Intel Core i7/i9® or AMD equivalent achieves a higher performance per dollar. Memory is not as important, ChromX usually needs 4 GB or less for its own data storage, so the system RAM should be at least 8 GB. Additionally, ChromX requirements are a graphics card and driver that support OpenGL and Windows 10® (recommended), 7, 8 or 8.1 operating systems. An internet connection is recommended for convenient access to the latest updates. There are also options to transfer those updates to a PC disconnected from the internet. You are welcome to contact us for an individual evaluation of your IT infrastructure.
ChromX data is stored in an open and documented format. All parameters used for simulating a chromatographic experiment in ChromX are stored in an XML-based text format. These .cmx files can be read and edited with any text editor. The modeling results generated with ChromX are commonly exported in other widely used data formats such as Excel® files or as graphics in .jpg, .png or .svg format. In the unlikely event that you stop using ChromX at some point in the future, this is not a risk to your modeling results.
When planning to roll out ChromX on a company-wide basis, it is essentially important to plan how ChromX is embedded into your organizational processes, SOPs and workflows. We gladly support customers in rolling out ChromX for e.g. the whole organization, multiple sites, multiple application areas and also offer to take a joint look at streamline SOP, processes and other relevant topics. As those projects depend on your individual status quo, the best procedure is for you to contact us.
