Dear Valued Customers:
We are pleased to announce the development of ARV 3.0, which will bring many improvements over ARV 2.07. In this development phase, we hope to interact with our customer base to find out what new features might be useful to add and what current features can be improved. The following is a brief list of user suggestions we have collected from previous interactions:
1) Add features to bring ARV into compliance with FDA 21 CFR Part 11. This entails creating audit trails for tracking changes to method files and data files.
2) Add a tool in ARV to export data files in an appropriate format (CSV, for example) to a networked folder to be processed by a LIMS software. I am very interested to hear from our customers about what LIMS software they are using and what ARV can do to make the integration process easier.
3) Add a tool in ARV that makes it easier to track the Y501 instrument constant (aka, the baseline) over time (probably over the course of up to 1000 injections). The tool would also prompt the user to take action (a backflush, for example) to correct an instrument constant that has drifted outside of user-defined bounds. There are many ways to design this tool, so I would like to get user input to develop the most useful tool possible.
4) Add a shortcut button to the toolbar for Configure Instruments.
5) Allow the ARV User group to view, but not edit the Analysis Options. Sometimes it is useful just to see what methods or parameters are running.
6) Allow the ARV User and ARV Super groups to access the Configure Instruments windows only to do communication checks and use the manual controls. These groups would not be able to save any changes they made to any parameters, just like now.
ARV 3.0 will be tested for Windows 10 compatibility. Thank you for your support of HMJ, and I look forward to hearing any comments and suggestions from you.
