Possible to run gradients using Shimadzu FCV-10AL mixer?

Discussions about HPLC, CE, TLC, SFC, and other "liquid phase" separation techniques.

We're running isocratic runs on our Shimadzu HPLC (LC-10 VP) using one pump (LC-10ADVP) and a FCV-10AL mixer. I'm wondering if I could use this mixer to do gradient elution runs.

Reason I'm confused is because on the software (EZSTART 7.4) there is NO option to set mixture percentages (see screenshot). You can only set ONE channel (A,B,C,D) to choose from, not mix. To me, the FCV-10AL seems more like a switching valve than a gradient mixer (?).

BTW I do have another 2nd pump (LC-10ADVP) and a FCV-11AL that I can install if need be.

Unfortunately I cant find any sort of documentation from Shimadzu on how to set this up. Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks again!
set fcv type on pump front to fcv 10alvp, and gradient mode light will come on. reconfigure in class vp

Thanks HPLCguru I tried this and now I see the gradient option. Thanks
