Details and Registration
Diablo Analytical will be attending Pittcon 2014 from March 2 – 6, 2014 at the McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. We will be located in the Quantum Analytics booth #2453. Please stop by to discuss the 5000A Real-Time Gas Analyzer, EZReporter Software, or our custom application development and laboratory analysis capabilities. Our partner, Frontier Laboratories is exhibiting their pyrolysis GC-MS systems, including the new Tandem Micro Reactor, also in Quantum Analytics booth #2453.
Diablo Analytical has released Version 3.0.2 of the EZReporter Software. In addition to a number of fixes, this new release includes the following enhancements:
NGA Edition Enhancements
- Added a new option to the NGL configuration that allows the extended fraction results (MW, Density, etc.) to be used as the C6+ calculation constants in a “Separate” report.
- Added a new option to the NGL configuration that allows the user to define additional extended fractions (C5+, C7+, etc.) to be calculated and reported in addition to C6+.
- Added an option to print a Total Component Summary report for C6+/Extended analysis reports. The report includes the mole%, weight%, and liquid vol% for all standard and extended range components normalized to 100%.
Standard Edition Enhancements
- Added new option to report control to append additional text information to the end of the main printed report. The text to append is read from a simple text file.
- If no title or subtitle is specified in the report configuration, there is no longer a blank line printed in the report for those items.
A complete list of fixes and enhancements is provided in the release notes.
Installing this Release
To install this release, simply download and run the installation program linked below. You current version of EZReporter will be uninstalled and the new version installed automatically. Your license status will be preserved.
Important: If you are using a modified version of one of the default configuration files, make sure that you rename the configuration file from the original file name. Whenever you install EZReporter, the default configuration files are reset to their standard settings, so any customizations you have made would be lost.

EZReporter 3.0 is a free upgrade for customers with existing licenses of EZReporter 2.0 or earlier. However, if you upgrade you will need to reactivate the software.
Contact Diablo Analytical if you have any questions about EZReporter 3.0.
Diablo Analytical has added support for the Agilent Technologies 5977A Mass Selective Detector (MSD) and the MassHunter GC/MS Acquisition software to the Diablo 5000A Real-Time Gas Analyzer (RTGA). Version 22.214.171.124 of the MS Sensor software has been released and includes a new instrument driver for controlling the 5977A MSD or other instruments that utilize the MassHunter GC/MS Acquisition software (for single quadrupole instruments).

It has become a tradition at Diablo Analytical to create a special calendar each year for the customers, vendors, business partners, and friends who have helped contribute to our success. Rather than simply having our logo printed on a “stock” calendar, we instead create a unique calendar composed of images that Founding Principal, Scott Hein, personally captured during the past year (you can see more of Scott’s images at photos.heinphoto.com).
The 2014 Natural History Calendar is at the printer now and will be available soon. In addition to the usual photos of the the landscapes, plants, and animals around Mount Diablo, the 2014 edition also covers Panama, Oregon, and several locations in California.
We have a limited number of our Natural History Calendars available by request for customers in North America. Please enter your shipping address below, and we will send you a calendar as long as they are available.
