Original Press Release:

New Software from Quantachrome for Pore Size and Surface Area Measurements

Quantachrome Instruments announces the release of the latest version of its AS1Win software, ver 2.01. The program is Windows Vista compliant and includes new functionality including the calculation of heats of adsorption - important for new environmental applications, and upgraded, user-friendly features. It is also offered in parallel as a version developed to satisfy the additional special needs of the pharmaceutical industry. The new program replaces ver 1.5X and ships with all new Autosorb-1MP and -1AG instrument orders.

This latest release adds a new physisorption "Heat of Adsorption" calculation, user-selectable units of measurement for familiar reporting of data, the latest library of Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations, and an enhanced user interface with optional database search engine. Users in the pharmaceutical industry can choose the 21 CFR Part 11 compliant version with required features including expiration of login passwords, idle timeout, encoded audit trail, unique report id's etc. This latest software program additionally offers data reduction of any Quantachrome gas sorption data files from other models such as Autosorb-6B, Nova, Quadrasorb and Hydrosorb.

Ground-breaking, new materials in the fields of hydrogen storage, lithium ion batteries, CO2 and methane sequestration and so on, absolutely require state-of-the-art characterization technologies, and it is in response to the ever changing needs of the materials science world that Quantachrome constantly improves both its instruments and associated software products. Quantachrome is the world-leading instrument manufacturer in the application of DFT methods to pore size, volume and surface area determination.
