Understanding and optimizing the implementation process Robert D. McDowall This article presents an overview of the design and implementation of a paperless laboratory with case study examples of how to progress toward an electronic environment.
Sophisticated applications can be developed relatively quickly Randall K. Julian, Jr., Ph.D. It has long been recognized that the exchange of data is of critical importance to the science of analytical chemistry.
What are you missing? Horst D. Simon Visual Data Analysis (VDA) tool packages are powerful software tools that allow the development of complex solutions to visualize and analyze data.
Standardizing the networked sensor interface Bill Weaver "No, I just have more homework than most" was my standard reply when new acquaintances in undergraduate classes learned of my double major in the physical sciences and accused me of being "smart."
How effective software design can leverage evolving technologies to reduce risk and improve ROI. As the commercial LIMS marketplace evolves and matures, it continually faces the challenge of technology change.
Hewlett-Packard's latest aid to the scientific community (and calculator geeks) is a sleek, silver programmable calculator with diverse menu's beefed-up memory, and a really nice display. This last is highlighted because the user is routinely presented with two oversized rows of display that are very easy on the eyes and can be enhanced by adjusting the contrast.
Measurement and analysis add another dimension Dean Sequera It wasn't that long ago that three-dimensional (3-D) rendering of microscopic objects was an elusive dream of microscopists.
Scientists and engineers have a tendency to become so involved in their work that they loose track of the inconsequential things around them, such as their personal life. With the holiday season rapidly approaching, this tendency could well become grounds for divorce. To save you from this sad fate, I am back once again with a list of holiday gift suggestions.
