Mistral Oven/Thermostat

The Mistral offers exact and reproducible temperature control. Large area heating plates guarantee safe and stable operation at a temperature range from +5°C up to 90°C for the thermostat, Ambient up to 90°C for the oven, while forced air circulation ensures excellent temperature uniformity in the column area.

 The temperature-controlled column area contributes to the reproducibility of retention times, separations will be more consistent at a constant temperature and some separations will be more efficient at elevated or sub-ambient temperatures. With a temperature-controlled column area room temperature changes will no longer affect your separations.

 The MayLab Mistral Software driver for ChromQuest and Xcalibur allows fully control of the Mistral oven or thermostat (except temperature gradient).

Mistral Interfacing ChromQuest / Xcalibur

A fully automated temperature controlled column compartment within ChromQuest or Xcalibur is the most efficient way for unattended and overnight operation when using different methods with different temperatures and only one column.






Software drivers are available for:

  • Thermo Scientific Xcalibur V 1.4 and higher
  • Thermo Scientific ChomQuest V 4.1 and higher


Mistral and GLP (Good Laboratory Practice)

The actual oven temperature is constantly being reported to the software and recorded as an analogue signal. The signal will be available as RAW File after recording.
