Matrix Gemini Updates Enhance Flexibility, Productivity
News Apr 28, 2016
Released at the end of Q2 2016, these improvements will be available to all current Matrix Gemini V5 users and, of course, to all new customers.
The latest version of software provides more flexibility for importing documents, pictures and files by allowing the file path to be defined beforehand to automate the process. This speeds up sample entry and other common tasks by reducing the number of clicks required to import common files.
Improvements to the bulk sample registration workflow enable the selection and/or manual creation of multiple batch codes in the same registration screen as well as enabling new substance test groups to be created during the registration process. Incorporated as a direct result of user feedback these enhancements increase flexibility when registering multiple samples and improve user efficiency in the Lab.
The entry of results where certain pre-defined options are needed can also be significantly speeded up thanks to further enhancements to Matrix Gemini’s ‘editable list box’ feature. It is now possible to display any contents of an editable list column as a combo box (pull-down list) instead of just text.
A number of useful display functions have also been added to Matrix Gemini with the ability to display dynamic images or button colours. This facility allows images on buttons or button colours to change based on result calculations or real time data changes on the screen. For example a button could be configured to display in green or red depending on an entered result in order to highlight a pass/fail result. Similarly, images on the buttons may be changed to reflect a particular characteristic of a sample such as solid or liquid, or perhaps the particular animal breed in a veterinary application.
Neural Computer Hears Like HumansNews
Modelling the human senses is an incredibly complex task. Our brains arrange cells into complex hierarchies that process information from our surroundings. Now, a group at MIT have created a model of the human auditory cortex that can hear sounds and music in the same way that humans do.READ MORE
