  5. 5. tiamo – titration and more tiamo is a control and database software for titrators and dosing devices as well as for complete laboratory auto- mation up to a client-server system. This is why the name tiamo stands for «titration and more» – tiamo can do more than just titrate. tiamo is a titration network (NTDS = Networked Titration Data System). tiamo is the result of Metrohm’s largest and most modern software project. With its numerous innovations, user friendliness and flexibility, tiamo is the leading software package for titrations.the way Bringing together what belongs together tiamo is the successor to TiNet and Workcell. Metrohm now offers you worldwide a uniform software package for laboratory automation. This means that, as an interna- tionally operating company, all your subsidiaries can use a single software platform in their laboratories for titrations. Your benefits: data and methods can be exchanged without any losses. tiamo brings together the world of Titrinos and the new Titrando system generation. In the software sector such compatibility with existing Metrohm instruments is not just a matter of course. The whole Titrino family, which was previously also controlled by TiNet, can continue to be operated under tiamo, and this after being on the market for more than ten years! Thats how Metrohm protects your investments!5

  7. 7. tiamo makes work a pleasure Your new workplace The modern user interface makes it easy for you to familiarize yourself with tiamo. All the commands and controls are to be found where you expect them to be. The tiamo bar allows direct access to the four program parts of tiamo: • Workplace • Database • Methods • Configuration These buttons may be visible or concealed, depending on the user’s access rights. The information windows are in the center. In the run window you can comfortably enter all the sample data, whether for a single sample or for a whole sample series. The live display window informs you about freely definable method instructions and shows the live curve during the titration. The method window provides information about the cur- rent method status. If necessary, you have live access to the method parameters. In the report window you can view the current reports of the last determinations.7
  8. 8. tiamo brings you more...Layout Manager – each user gets his or her own tiamoWith the novel Layout Manager the user interface can be arranged so that each user only seesthose windows that are really necessary. This saves time; cluttered-up screens are now a thing ofthe past.You can also freely define what information is to be shown in the windows.Making four from one – parallel titrationsYou can subdivide the user interface even further to create up to four independent workplaces.In this way you can elegantly control different titration systems that are all connected to the samePC. And all this in parallel – and, if necessary, with different users. This means that tiamo offersmaximum utilization of the analytical system.tiamo carries out tedious routine workDo you enter your sample data manually or do you use a barcode reader? In both cases tiamohelps you to fill in the sample table. Continually repeated sample identifications can be saved astext templates. tiamo also takes care of the sequential numbering. Importing the sample table?Just let your LIMS draw up the sample table for tiamo! Avoid surprises when using a samplechanger – let tiamo check the sample table for sample weights that are too high. You can usethe sample assignment table to link sample numbers with methods. This makes your tiamo theeasiest to operate routine system in your lab! 8
