AstraZeneca uses ACD/Labs software to make analytical data accessible as part of their Global Analytical Database. In this presentation, you’ll get an overview of how this database is used by chemists and analysts for data processing, data storage, and knowledge sharing. Two case studies are also shown to highlight how access to centralized data can...

Sanofi partnered with ACD/Labs to develop an automated lab tool combining LC/MS and 1H NMR to help organic chemists efficiently verify their structures. This tool collects, compiles, and evaluates the analytical data and the proposed structure once they are available, and sends the results to the chemist. The pilot project for this system is presented...

Novartis employs a variety of ACD/Labs software in support of structure elucidation and structure verification in pharmaceutical development and post-commercialization. Here they present: Their workflow for structure identification and elucidation for impurities and degradants Time-savings from automated structure verification—a system supporting research chemists for several years The importance of integrated, centralized data management in impurity...

The Pfizer Structure Elucidation Group (SEG) spans two continents, supporting research and development in the UK and USA. In this presentation John talks about their structure elucidation workflow for assisted data processing and analysis, and centralized data management. John also presents some interesting case studies of puzzled they have solved.

At Medtronic, Cindy and Joe are responsible for the characterization of known and unknown compounds. When they needed to upgrade their instruments several years ago they also built their requirements for the analysis software they wanted to find and deploy: Instrument vendor and data format agnostic Integrated with existing ELN and LIMS Traceability (audit trail,...

Improvements in mass spectrometry have generated an increasing demand for analysis of more complicated samples by mass spectrometry (MS). While liquid chromatography (LC) and gas chromatography (GC) are effective at reducing sample complexity, co-elution of components is still not entirely avoidable. The reality of today’s lab is: A variety of instrument configurations and a multitude...

How ACD/Labs Simplifies GC/MS & LC/UV/MS Project Management Modern mass spectrometrists are expected to detect and identify components with greater efficiency, despite increasing sample complexity and shrinking analytical group sizes. Mass spectrometrists require advanced informatics solutions that offer comprehensive coverage of MS analysis, interpretation, and reporting functions. Learn how ACD/Labs’ software strategies benefit mass spectrometrists...

Increasing importation of food and the diversity of potential contaminants have necessitated more analytical testing of these foods. Historically, mass spectrometric methods for testing foods were confined to monitoring selected ions (SIM or MRM), achieving sensitivity by focusing on targeted ion signals. A limiting factor in this approach is that any contaminants not included on...
