According to the Data Translation catologue, the DT2802 board (don't know
about the dt2801) can be used with the following external software packages:
LabCalc (Galactic Industries Corp.), ChromPerfect(Justice Innovations),
Chrom/RT (Labtech) and Chromafile (Lab Control GmbH). I don't have the numbers
for these compamies, but Data Translation (Finnish office (0) 3511800 fax: (0)
345384) should be able to help. I remember that I looked at going thru' this
route when I wanted to upgrade my chromatography data handling, and had a look
at a package called GRAMS/386 which looked very good, I think it also could
use the DT2802. It is again from Galactic Industries, Inc., but I got a demo
disc through a company called Adept Scientific UK (0462) 480055, who have a
web page at:
In the end though I went for a board plus software package called Borwin which
is very competitively prices and so far I'm quite pleased with it. It is by
