ABI unveils a new web portal to share downloadable, turnkey methods that Cliquid™ Software users can download from an applications microsite onto their PCs.

What Apple did for music with iPod and iTunes, Applied Biosystems has set out to do with the new iMethods online portal – essentially making it easier for laboratories to perform regulatory testing by taking advantage of pre-configured methods that can be downloaded from the Internet.

Applied Biosystems unveiled a new web portal to share downloadable, turnkey methods that Cliquid™ Software users can download from an applications microsite onto their PCs for easy upload directly into Cliquid software.

The company claims that making the method easily accessible, free of charge, to a wider range of testing laboratories for immediate download could help to identify contaminants at a fast rate to help protect the food supply, supporting continual improvements to food testing. The portal could also reduce the time required for testing laboratories to adopt the new tests – potentially from months to just a matter of days through the new iMethods option.

The methods include those developed by Applied Biosystems/MDS SCIEX and those contributed by expert users. The first collection available on this new portal includes Melamine, Japanese Positive List (pesticides) and Floroquinalone methods. Cliquid Software for Routine Food Testing offers a simplified interface with pre-configured methods, pre-configured reports and an MRM catalogue in order to customise the required methods, and to simplify the detection of food contaminants, such as pesticides, dyes, mould-related toxins, and chemical and antibiotic residues.
