The companyexplains that Fusion not only greatlyaccelerates method development, itenables development of more robustmethods which transfer successfully andwithstand the test of repeated use. Using aQbD-based methodology for LC methoddevelopment allows scientists to developthe best possible method much faster andwith much greater confidence. Thecompany reports that this automatedprocess ensures that scientists develop theright method the first time and translate chromatographic data into information,knowledge and answers.
