An CDS vendor is an entity (business, company, corporation, etc.) which provides chromatography data system (CDS; or chromatography data management system or CDMS) software or software packages. The CDS software may be broadly generalized to handle a great number of laboratory situations dealing with chromatography, or it may be very specific to handle the needs of a specific type of sample analysis.

Note: The columns of these tables are sortable for your convenience. Simply click the small arrows in the title of each column to use this feature.

Key CDS vendors

The criterion for a "key" vendor selling proprietary commercial CDS software: the vendor's LIMSwiki page must have a cited (from a publicly-available source) price list. Those with demonstration videos are given higher preference; vendors ordered by number of demonstration videos.
