UI Varian GC & GCMS analyser


User Interface Description

The VARIAN GC&GCMS UI, a revolutionary new UI realised in 2002. Coming from numerical black and white LCD displays, the new UI used a full colour dynamic LCD display combined with an overlay touchscreen. Big progress clock graphics for reading at distance.

Main functions start-stop-pause and help always available as hardware buttons. The yellow start run button became an identity element across the whole VARIAN instrumentation range.
