we ran a PQ2 a few years ago, and though I can't lay my hands on a version
of the Fisons software you are seeking, I have managed to find the original
OS/2 version 2.1 operating system on 3.5" diskettes.
If this is any use on its own let me know. I will also make some enquiries
locally about the software. Hope this helps.

Subject: Fisons PlasmaQuad ICP/MS *need O/S
Hello from UConn,
I was entrusted to work on a "Fisons Instruments PlasmaQuad VG" that
had a computer controller with a faulty HDD. Therefore I need to replace the
HDD as well as Install a fresh copy of IBM's O/S 2 and then reload the
software. The big problems with this are that we have neither the Fisons
software nor O/S2. Wondering if anyone could be of service in these regards?
P.S. Haven't put a new HDD yet, just wondering if it needs to be a
particular size; or if I can throw in something large and it will by default
only recognize the first X(Max Data/OS) Mb/Gb, or will I have to find
something that is closer to the original HDD size. All help appreciated!
