MAESTRO Software

Automated Sample Preparation and Sample Introduction

The MAESTRO software operates all GERSTEL modules and system solutions in a simple and efficient Windows environment. MAESTRO can be operated as stand-alone software, coupled (one sequence file) with Thermo Scientific Xcalibur or AB SCIEX Analyst or fully integrated with the Agilent Technologies ChemStation. Just one method and one sequence table runs the complete system from Sample Preparation and Sample Introduction to GC/MS or LC/MS analysis. Set-up is performed in a very simple manner: By mouse-click, requiring no special programming language or macros. Maestro can also import sample information from any LIMS system in CSV format to support high throughput operation.

Main Features and Advantages

Flexibility and Traceability

MAESTRO provides full flexibility by allowing an on-going analysis sequence to be modified to incorporate priority samples while keeping track of all steps in the process.

On-line Help Function

MAESTRO has a built-in, context sensitive on-line help function to simplify using special features, speed up parameter entry and improve overall productivity.

Maintenance Function

MAESTRO has a built-in maintenance function, simplifying maintenance planning and improving the overall operation. If the maintenance function is activated, the software will remind you to change ferrules or to perform other specified regular maintenance tasks whenever a user-defined number of injections has been reached (maintenance counter).


MAESTRO speeds up optimization of your Large Volume Injection analysis for GC by calculating the best injection parameters (pressure, injection speed, temperaure and flow) based on the solvent boiling point.
