Potential Persistent Tuberculosis Treatment
Researchers have discovered several first-in-class compounds that target hidden TB infections by attacking a critical process the bacteria use to survive in the hostile environment of the lungs.
Shedding Light on “Dark” Cellular Receptors
UNC and UCSF labs create a new research tool to find homes for two orphan cell-surface receptors, a crucial step toward finding better therapeutics and causes of drug side effects.
Giant Molecules Inhibit Ebola Infection
European researchers have designed a "giant" molecule formed by thirteen fullerenes covered by carbohydrates which, by blocking this receptor, are able to inhibit the cell infection by an artificial ebola virus model.

Increasing Chemist Productivity in an Open-Access Environment
Bookmark and Share


Historically, the pharmaceutical industry employed analytical support groups to handle achemist’s analytical data. These groups were responsible for acquiring, processing, analyzing,interpreting, and reporting results for submitted samples. Thanks in large part to advancementsin “Open-Access” or “Walk-up” analytical instrumentation, many routine analytical experimentsare now run by medicinal and process chemists. The advantage of this approach is that itreduces the turn-around time associated with analytical support groups and places the data intothe hands of the individual most knowledgeable about the chemistry involved. Unfortunately, theevolution of open-access data handling has its own drawbacks for chemists. The burden ofwaiting for results has been replaced with the processing, analysis, and interpretation of their ownanalytical data. This added workload has in many cases limited the productivity of a chemist’sday-to-day activities and places more emphasis on their ability to confirm structures by NMR. Insome environments, chemists will have to return to the instrument room to pick up a paperprintout of their spectra. While they usually have access to the instrument’s software, in largergroups they might be faced with a queue to just take a closer look and perform some minorprocessing procedures.

This application note will highlight the benefits of having good NMR software tools that chemistscan access, in the convenience of their own lab or office. In addition, it will address how NMRprediction and verification algorithms can aid chemists in their interpretation of NMR data, thusaccelerating the decision making process.
