Languages

The sites can be viewed in different languages by selecting the "select" option next to the globe on the top of each page. The websites use machine translation to translate the content

The LabComm software is language independent since it is sending data from analysers and it will send the data inn whichever language is used in the lab

The LabDriver system is multi - lingual and is available in English, French, German Spanish and Italian. The user selects one of these languages when they enter their details at login

Email, Printing and Creating PDF pages

A link to most of the web pages can be emailed, printed or converted to a PDF. Select the icon on the right hand side to do this.

PDF files

The PDF file format stands for Portable Document Format. If you need Adobe Acrobat: download Adobe’s free Acrobat Reader software

Image and Text or Font Size

Many of the images can be enlarged by clicking on them. If a larger image is available the cursor will change to a "hand" icon

Font Size

This can be changed in all browsers using the CTRL + or CTRL - keys. This will either magnify (CTRL +) or reduce (CTRL -) for all the websites open in that browser (eg Internet Explorer, Google Chrome)

Schematics and images

Many of the schematics are downloadable as PDF files. Many of the smaller images (displayed as thumbnails) can be enlarged by clicking on them - this will create a new window with a larger image.
