Quality Assurance

While the commonly relied upon solution for QA tends to be a laboratory information management system (LIMS), ACD/Labs offers a solution that surpasses the functionality of a conventional LIMS in this environment.

With ACD/Labs' multi-technique, multi-vendor knowledge management software you can:

  • Unify all the disparate data across your department, or the entire organization
  • Store, search, and display analytical spectra, chemical structures, analytical results, and meta data
  • Automatically compare chromatograms, sample spectra and reference standards to determine quality

Combining our core software and automation products, ACD/Labs provided a fully automated quality assurance system for a fragrance manufacturer, which not only logs and tracks samples, assesses quality, and generates reports, but also interacts with an existing ERP system.


In the synthesis of new compounds; isolation of essential oils from natural products; optimization of compounds already in use; and in the creation of new blends of existing compounds, a wealth of chemical and analytical knowledge is collected. ACD/Labsí software not only helps in prediction of properties but also with processing, interpretation, and storage of analytical knowledge.


  • Knowledge management of chemical and analytical data in a chemically relevant way so that it can be effectively repurposed
  • Organization-wide access to all chemical and analytical knowledge, searchable by text, structure, sub-structure, meta-data, and spectral elements
  • Tracking of in-house compounds, flavor or fragrance blends, and chemical reactions
  • Prediction of physicochemical and ADME/Tox properties
