Manufacturer: ACD/Labs
Product name: ACD/Labs' Solution for Open Access Labs
Software features: Available as separate product; may be used with other equipment; compatible with other manufacturers' equipment.
This new browser-based solution provides a single interface for delivery of multi-technique analytical results in an interactive environment. Automatic capture of raw data from LC–MS and NMR instruments is followed by processing and interpretation. Live spectra and chromatograms are stored, with associated structures, in a database for subsequent review and retrieval. Mass confirmation results can be visualized together with interpreted NMR spectra. Enabled by the Spectrus Portal the solution provides fully supported, vendor-neutral, platform-independent software.
Suggested applications: This software is intended for use by open access/walk-up laboratories to provide a convenient method for delivery of results from routine analytical experiments in a vendor neutral multi-technique platform. Automated processing and analysis removes bias and frees analytical scientists to concentrate on more challenging problems while providing consistent results.
