ACD/Labs and Protasis Announce Collaboration
News Nov 30, 2005
Advanced Chemistry Development, Inc., (ACD/Labs) and Protasis have announced the start of a collaboration that will produce the complete automated high-throughput system for NMR data production and analysis available.
By combining Protasis’ One-Minute NMR system and ACD/Labs’ Automation Server, the entire NMR process - from loading samples to interpretation - is now automated.
The system uses a Web-based interface to log in sample lists and proposed chemical structures. Sample loading and data acquisition are automated with One-Minute NMR.
When the NMR spectrometer has produced the spectra the information is gathered by the ACD/Automation Server, and data is automatically processed, analyzed, databased, and proposed structures are verified.
The results of all the analyzed samples are then sent back to the One-Minute NMR system, where an e-mail is then prepared for each user showing the color-coded plate results in a graphic (HTML) display.
The verification results are clearly marked on the plate display, thereby allowing the user to focus their efforts on only those problems that need attention.
Brent Lefebvre, NMR Product Manager at ACD/Labs, comments, "Working with Protasis is a natural fit because our technologies complement each other so well."
"Users can only benefit from two industry leaders getting together and making their entire NMR process high-throughput."
"While ACD/Labs users have had high-throughput tools at their disposal for some time, there was always a disconnect between data production and data analysis. With this new collaboration, this gap has been bridged."
"The most exciting part is that users only ever need to open the spectra that need their attention. This should significantly reduce the amount of time spent on NMR analyses."
Bob Albrecht, One-Minute NMR Product Manager, adds, "This combined system will open new doors to NMR in the same way that library searches advanced mass spectrometry, but with the improved structure information of NMR."
"With a capacity of thousands of samples and cycle times in the range of one minute, One-Minute NMR is ready to provide fully automated molecular structure confirmation."
"Our joint effort was designed from the start to answer the question: 'Do I have the molecule I think I have?' in the most efficient way possible."

University of Illinois engineers built a 3-D printer that offers a sweet solution to making detailed structures that commercial 3-D printers can’t: Rather than a layer-upon-layer solid shell, it produces a delicate network of thin ribbons of hardened isomalt, the type of sugar alcohol used to make throat lozenges.READ MORE
