IT for Scientific R&D

Deploy scientific software that is designed to marshall, normalize, and manage analytical data. Deliver the efficiencies your organization is looking for with tools your scientists enjoy using.

Digitalize Your Analytical Data Workflows

Scientific data is diverse and disparate. You’ve already deployed ELNs, LIMS, CDSs, and SDMSs to support R&D. But your analytical data is still in heterogeneous formats, scattered across silos. Or it’s reduced to numbers and images with no link to the original data files.

Scattered files in various formats make it hard for your scientists to find and reuse analytical data. An even bigger problem if you want to develop data science applications.

Why organizations like yours adopt our technology
  • Standardize data from all analytical techniques in a single format
  • Reduce software interfaces for your users with vendor-agnostic applications
  • Offer live (immediately re-editable) analytical data for meaningful decision-making
  • Retain chemical and experimental context of experiments for future insights
  • Make your data accessible throughout your enterprise
  • Re-process data easily when new processing methods are available
  • Decrease your maintenance overhead

What You Need to Know About Our Informatics Platforms

Flexible Infrastructure Support

  • The majority of our technologies are Windows-based. Select Percepta products are offered on Linux.
  • We support both relational (Oracle, PostGreSQL) and non-relational databases (Mongo, HDF5)
  • We work with you to design the implementation and architecture strategy that fits your use case and infrastructure
  • Containerized deployment is an option for browser-based applications

API So You Can Be Data-Centric

  • Our API help make your data available throughout your enterprise
  • We have integrated thousands of instruments from all major instrument vendors and continue to add more
  • Our technology has been configured to import data to and from various ELN, LIMS, CDS, SDMS, and in-house systems

Cloud-Enabled Technology

  • Deploy our technologies in the cloud (AWS, Azure, etc.)
  • Marshal instrument data directly to Spectrus database on the cloud for query and visualization
  • Install client applications in the cloud for instant review and reprocessing

Computing at the Edge

  • Reduce latency so scientists can access results quickly—marshal and process analytical data as it’s generated, from the instrument

Browser & Windows-Based Applications

  • Development of browser-based applications to ease your maintenance overhead and make applications available to your users on any type of device
  • On-going support for our Windows-based applications

How We Deliver Scientific Knowledge & Informatics Expertise

Our team brings decades of scientific and informatics experience to help address your needs.

Because we are scientists first…

  • Live analytical data is at the heart of our data management solutions
  • The intimate connection between chemical structure and analytical data means our software handles and interprets spectral and chromatographic data just like your subject matter experts (SMEs)
  • We know your scientists want to use the instrument best-suited to answer their questions and not be tied to a particular vendor or format—that’s why Spectrus is vendor-agnostic
  • We understand the importance of expert review; our applications and solutions are not black boxes
  • Database search parameters include structural, spectral, and textual inputs
  • We know new insights sometimes require re-processing of data. We make that easy.
  • Our predictive software provides the information you need to assess the reliability of the results. You can also train the algorithms with your own data.
  • We started out supporting applications for small molecule chemistry and expanded to biomolecules as your needs evolved

No single informatics system can handle the variety and complexity of data generated in scientific R&D. While we offer the best in analytical data handling, you need information to flow seamlessly between the systems already in use.

Spectrus delivers native handling of >150 analytical instrument data formats. It integrates with the informatics systems already in use in your organization.

Customer Reviews
“ACD/Labs is an atypical vendor. You go above and beyond what we ask you to do and draw our attention to what may or may not work a couple of years down the line. We’ve been pleased with everything from cost, performance, the quality of solutions, and your ability to just get on a call and brainstorm.”
