Give your older AKTA a boost with a software upgrade to Windows 7 or 10 OS
We often talk to labs who are struggling to maintain the effectiveness of their systems because they are constrained by their software. It’s common to find older AKTA systems being controlled from lab PCs running on old Windows operating systems (XP or earlier) – with the associated networking and upgrade problems that brings. You might have inherited an older system, recommissioned one that was mothballed or even purchased a refurbished unit. You could be looking at an old AKTA system that won’t run on newer versions of Windows. Maybe you have an old lab PC that’s beyond updating. To compound matters, you need software and hardware that’s compatible with your intranet. Organisations rightly want their labs to upgrade to newer operating systems for security reasons – and who wants to put a 10 year old operating system on a new computer! That’s where an iLab Solutions software upgrade could help.
We’ve helped labs extend the life of their faithful, older AKTAs by supplying a laptop running Windows 7 or 10, configured with the instrument strategies from their current system and with the latest AKTA operating software. There are a number of benefits to upgrading your Windows PC:
- Faster data acquisition and processing
- Laptop system to replace desktop – portable and multi-functional
- Enables networking
- Easy to install future software upgrades.
We’ve heard from labs that have tried to update their own systems and hit problems, such as locating the system configuration files. We’ve also seen instances of incompatibility with operating software or worse of all, hardware failures requiring a complete de-install and downgrade. iLab Solutions’ fully trained service engineers will move over your method library, ensure your instrument is recognised and liaise with your IT department to ensure security compliance and data protection.
