Protecting sensitive data Bill Weaver, Ph.D. During my morning commute, I mused about a thesis on data security.
A view toward the future of instrument interfacing Robert Pavlis As laboratories move toward a more secure and controlled environment, I see instrument interfacing taking on an increasingly significant role by providing control over more than just the collection of instrument data.
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.
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.
Exceptional experimentation with extreme programming Bill Weaver, Ph.D. We have recently upgraded our laboratories with some modern analytical instrumentation.
John A. Wass A review of JMP 5 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.
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.
By Ray Almgren To talk about data acquisition futures, we must describe the industry standard for data acquisition software today. Productivity-focused data acquisition software goes far beyond a set of function libraries that access I/O.
Rescuing miniscule signals from noise Bill Weaver, Ph.D. Electromagnetic energy absorption is a ubiquitous tool for detection and quantitation of matter. Many of us were introduced to spectroscopy using a bench-top Bausch & Lomb Spectronic visible absorption spectrometer.
By Richard W. Cooke As I write this I am in Chicago attending the Radiological Society of North America conference.
By: John Sall The coming generations of statistical software will scale things up gracefully for much bigger problems. Already we are getting huge scaleup pressure for analyzing microarray data for gene expression studies and mass spec data for proteomic studies.
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 Scott Deutsch For the longest time, LIMS solutions have operated in a vacuum — successfully. The laboratory has been able to act as a stand-alone, non-integrated organization because of its scientific capabilities. I see this rapidly changing in 2003 and beyond.
Assuring Compliance and Accessibility Adrian Fergus The U.S. FDA has recognized the practical problems surrounding the long-term archive of electronic records of chromatographic data and other analytical data
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.
