Bruker has announced the launch of Bruker Dash Reporting, an intuitive new system which brings the power and flexibility of customized reporting to all users. This new capability centers on Dash Designer, a purpose built standalone application which enables customers to position and closely format report elements, and preview reports with relevant data. Dash Designer then seamlessly integrates with Bruker’s powerful MS Workstation data system to generate reports both manually and automatically, according to customer needs. This combination delivers intuitive and highly flexible report development and generation. Dash will be included at no extra cost on all new EVOQ liquid chromatography mass spectrometers (LC-MS) and new SCION gas chromatography mass spectrometers (GC-MS); upgrades are available for existing customers.
Dash Designer’s user interface has been purposefully created to provide an intuitive and visual approach to make report development as easy as possible. Users ‘draw’ report elements such as tables and spectrum plots in position on the page. These individual elements can then be sorted, filtered, resized and formatted with common editing operations and advanced functions. Once formatting is complete, the report template may be previewed directly with data in Dash Designer and amended as needed. Furthermore, when report templates have been created, MS Workstation provides the flexibility of a variety of both manual and automatic report generation options in both hardcopy and PDF form. For example, one or more samples may be selected for immediate report generation or, alternatively, a series of reports may be generated automatically when a batch of samples has been completed.
Jim Edwards, Software Product Manager at Bruker Daltonics, said, “Bruker Dash Reporting has been designed to be accessible for all users, providing an easy method for adapting reports to meet the needs of the situation. Dash Designer has an easy to use yet powerful interface, which also allows users to create and review templates with the relevant data before report generation. Combined with the versatility of MS Workstation, the system delivers total reporting flexibility. Dash is part of Bruker’s drive for innovation that makes a real difference to actual labs.”
