ATL to Host Webcast: LIMS Without Limits - Using Mobile Technology
News Aug 13, 2013
Accelerated Technology Laboratories, Inc. (ATL) will host the sixth in a series of webcasts on Wednesday, August 21, 2013, to share information leveraging LIMS in a mobile world, with tablets such as the iPad and Samsung Galaxy, as well as smart phones. ATL's Mobile Application allows a collector to download relevant sample collection information from the automated scheduler that was set up in the ATL LIMS directly onto their mobile device. Users of this application can view a collection list, enter results for samples that were previously scheduled, and add new samples "on the fly". Field or plant samplers may have routine collection routes, respond to emergency collection needs or address consumer complaints.
Users connect to ATL's Mobile Application using their web-enabled smart phone or tablet's browser. The ATL Mobile Application website communicates with the Web Service, which communicates with the LIMS database. The ATL LIMS mobile technology allows users to collect data even when no Internet or Wi-Fi connection is available and uploads the data to the LIMS once the user is back in range.
Both field users and laboratory users will benefit from this technology. Primary advantages of ATL's Mobile Application include rapid data access, faster decision-making, enhanced data quality, reduction of costs (labor savings) and increased customer satisfaction.
Recommended attendees include laboratory and quality managers in the analytical, food & beverage, manufacturing (product/material testing), agriculture, energy, environmental, water/wastewater, life science, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and public health sectors
Algorithm Speeds Up Medical Image Analysis 1000 TimesNews
Medical image registration is a common technique that involves overlaying two images, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, to compare and analyze anatomical differences in great detail. Researchers have described a machine-learning algorithm that can register brain scans and other 3-D images more than 1,000 times more quickly using novel learning techniques.
Antarctic Worm and Machine Learning Help Identify Cerebral Palsy EarlierNews
A research team has released a study in the peer-reviewed journal BMC Bioinformatics showing that DNA methylation patterns in circulating blood cells can be used to help identify spastic cerebral palsy (CP) patients. The technique which makes use of machine learning, data science and even analysis of Antarctic worms, raises hopes for earlier targeted CP therapies.
Towards Personalized Medicine: One Type of Data is Not EnoughNews
To understand the biology of diseased organs researchers use different types of molecular data. One of the biggest computational challenges at the moment is integrating these multiple data types. A new computational method jointly analyses different types of molecular data and disentangles the sources of disease variability to guide personalized treatment.READ MORE
