For more information please contact me directly at [log in to unmask] We offer direct TCP/IP support for JEOL 8900 and 8200 instruments on a PC for acquisition, automation and analysis including full column control of all parameters. This full featured PC package can supplement or entirely replace the HP computer. Our system is currently running on an 8900 at NASA Marshall Flight Center (Paul Carpenter) and on a new 8200 at Cal Tech (Ma Chi). The cost is a fraction of what JEOL charges for their upgrade and includes a full implementation all of my advanced algorithms, techniques and modeling software. john John J. Donovan, Pres.
