Research Systems, Inc. (RSI), a wholly owned subsidiary of Eastman Kodak Company, announced that its IDL Software is being used by oceanographers to analyze and visualize world topography.
The University of Pennsylvania's Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute has adopted SPSS's integrated data mining and text mining solution. The Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute will be using Clementine and LexiQuest Mine solutions to analyze disease processes, with the objective of improving patient outcomes.
JMP is statistical software for exploratory data analysis, general and sophisticated statistical testing, and experimental design. Its richly visual graphic environment makes it an excellent tool for students, statisticians, scientists, and engineers. It has found widespread use in both academe and industry due to its gentle learning curve, automatic graphics and breadth of capabilities.
Using a Device Server or software that allows you to use a PC as a device server Thomas Lutz Most modern electronic laboratory instruments (balances, electrochemistry meters, spectrometers, spectrophotometers, measuring instruments, etc.
Exceptional experimentation with extreme programming Bill Weaver, Ph.D. We have recently upgraded our laboratories with some modern analytical instrumentation.
The important thing is not to be intimidated John R. Joyce, Ph.D. If you tend to push your Palm-based Personal Data Assistant (PDA) to the limit, you've no doubt found yourself in the situation of trying to use an application that doesn't quite do what you want it to do.
LIMS/sm was dead, and the impossibly naive consultants were left to face the unfathomable scorn of jilted customers Randy C. Hice But LIMS/sm, now accelerating like a fuel dragster, didn't know it had contracted a terminal disease. LDP management decided, for reasons that were never clear, that LIMS/sm was moribund, but no one told the patient.
By Stephanie Staley and Ali Bahrami Scientists in the Biophysics Group at Los Alamos National Lab (LANL) perform noninvasive neuroimaging research as part of The Human Brain Project.
Image data becomes a valuable asset when it can be efficiently managed, analyzed and interrogated By Janet L. Smith, Ph.D. An explosion of image data brought on by developments in functional genomics and high content screening (HCS) presents a growing obstacle to efficient drug discovery.
A number of new options provide most of the functionality of a classic word processor while providing the portability of pad and pen. While you can find options on a variety of specialty platforms, most of the ones I'm familiar with are Personal Data Assistants (PDA) designed to be used with the Palm operating system, making them available for Palm, Visor, and Clie units.
But Pittcon hasn't been a picnic either. Despite the unsurpassed organizational skills of the Pittcon program committee, it nonetheless is a scientific potpourri of instrumentation, fume hoods, and the assorted hubris characteristic of a 500,000 square foot garage sale for the laboratory community.
The CDS market today and the future ahead Gordon Logan Ph.D. Chromatography data systems (CDS) are the most widely-used single use and networked data systems in scientific software. They look after crucial separations information from tens of thousands of lab samples per day, they have the most revered history in terms of commercial success, with the most knowledgeable user and supplier base. Hence, we naturally take their power and reliability completely for granted.
What's needed for ELNs to replace and improve on paper Stephen Bruce Information technology is a familiar and essential component of many aspects of research, dramatically enhancing efficiency and productivity in these areas.
By Stu Miller The direction of LIMS and lab data management in 2003 can be viewed as progressing in two different areas: •vendor software advancements, and •directions clients take to address their business needs. Vendors will advance their software on several fronts.
By Trevor Heritage Scientific software has evolved over the past decades in reaction to three main forces: evolution of available computer equipment, tasks that chemists expect and are expected to achieve, and types and volumes of data involved in research tasks.
