The Agilent ChemStation is a software package to control Agilent liquid chromatography and gas chromatography systems such as the 1050, 1100 and 1200 Series HPLC system. It has a command line interpreter and can run macros. Those macros are files grouping a set of commands. These files possess a .mac extension. ChemStation can import analysis lists and export result files in XML by adding new lines to the ChemStation.ini configuration file. This is a feature to implement the connection with a Laboratory information management system (LIMS).
