Sample Preparation and Sample
Introduction Perfectly Synchronized.

The MAESTRO software operates all GERSTEL modules and system solutions in a simple and efficient manner. MAESTRO can be operated as stand-alone software or fully integrated with  the Agilent Technologies ChemStation. Just one method and one sequence table runs the complete system from Sample Prep and Sample Introduction to GC/MS or LC/MS analysis. Set-up is performed in a very simple manner: By mouse-click.

Flexibility and traceability

MAESTRO provides full flexibility by allowing an ongoing analysis sequence to be modified to incorporate priority samples while keeping track of all steps in the process from sample prep to sample introduction and beyond.

  • Priority samples can be added to the system at any point in the standard analysis sequence
  • LOG file and Service LOG file functions provide traceability and make trouble-shooting easier
  • Automated E-mail notification in case the system is halted enables prompt intervention to ensure that your samples are analyzed as planned

On-line Help Function

MAESTRO has a built-in, context sensitive on-line help function to simplify and speed up the operation and improve the overall productivity.

  • Interactive On-line Help Function
  • Context sensitive help for fast answers
  • Easy-to-understand explanation of each function
  • Simple and comprehensive training tool for new users
  • Provides recommendations for parameter settings

Maintenance Function

MAESTRO has a built-in maintenance function, simplifying maintenance planning and improving the overall operation. If the maintenance function is activated, the software will remind you to change ferrules or to perform other specified regular maintenance  tasks whenever a user-defined number of injections has been reached (maintenance counter).

LVI Calculator

MAESTRO speeds up optimization of your LVI analysis by calculating the best injection parameters based on the injection liner used, the solvent boiling point and injection volume.

Sample Prep by Mouse-Click

The GERSTEL MultiPurpose Sampler (MPS) is a fully automated sample preparation and sample introduction robot for GC (GC/MS) and LC (LC/MS). Sample preparation is performed in a controlled, highly accurate and reproducible manner for best possible results.

The PrepBuilder function helps you automate all sample prep steps by mouse-click:
Standard addition
Derivatization
Sample transfer
Incubation and Agitation
Extraction
Mixing
Conditioning
Dilution
Liner Exchange
Weighing
Solid Phase Extraction
Washing
Evaporation
Sample Introduction

Intelligent sequence editor

The sequence editor has intelligent fill-down functions that let you generate new sequences extremely easily and quickly. Very little effort is required to create the sequence table that runs your daily samples. Priority samples can be added to the system at any point in the analysis sequence.

When integrated into Agilent Technologies’ ChemStation one sequence table and one method runs the entire system including GC/MS or LC/MS

 

New sequence table generated by simple repeat function of first line. Intelligent fill-down function with “Increment Vial/ Datafile” option 
New sequence table generated by modifying an existing table. Trays, injectors or methods are easily replaced by highlighting one cell and pushing repeat button. 
Copy/paste function with clear indication of destination 

The MAESTRO Scheduler provides an at-a-glance graphical overview of all sample preparation steps, the GC/MS or LC/MS analysis times and the total analysis time for the entire batch of samples.

Based on the scheduler overview, sample preparation and analysis times are easily optimized for highest throughput.
When the method is changed, the effect on productivity is immediately seen on the display, the sequence is checked for errors before the run to ensure that all samples are analyzed as planned.

During the software development of MAESTRO one main objective was a convenient and user-friendly handling.

  • The sequence is checked for errors before the run to ensure that  all samples are analyzed as planned
  • The effects of parameter or method changes are visualized directly
  • Interactive on-line help with parameter specific input assistence for fast method development
  • Sample preparation steps are conveniently and easily selected a from drop down menu – without macro programming

 

Context sensitive help

Help for the topic at hand is always at your fingertips in the MAESTRO software. Activate the help function for a single field of interest with a mouse-click or press the help button to display the on-line user manual with extensive help on the software screen in question.

Additionally, whenever the mouse cursor is placed over a parameter field, a short explanation showing the valid range for that parameter pops up to make it as easy as possible to generate the method.
