Scion Instruments Launches Latest Release of CompassCDS™ Chromatography Data System
News Mar 15, 2016
Scion Instruments has released the latest CompassCDS™ software for multi-instrument GC laboratories. This industry-focused, networked chromatography data system solution eliminates the costs associated with licensing individual named users. With its unique capacity for customization, CompassCDS provides operators with a powerful tool for a variety of analytical operations. Available as a standalone or fully networked client/server application, it meets the broadest spectrum of customer requirements.
CompassCDS provides operators with customizable, single screen user interfaces that simplify day-to-day operation of GCs in routine analytical labs. It is designed to operate in 24/7 production environments with current Windows versions plus Virtualized and MS Terminal Server and Citrix Metaframe installations. Standard features include multi-channel reporting, the ability to include complex custom calculations and summary statistical reporting. A wide range of GCs including all of the current Scion, Bruker and Varian models, as well as Agilent and other manufacturers’ instruments can be controlled through the software.
CompassCDS is also capable of controlling configured and custom GC analyzers, manufactured for specific industrial analytical applications through plug-in modules for simulated distillation, detailed hydrocarbon analysis, transformer oil gas analysis and natural gas analysis. In addition, the CompassCDS ChromSync module has been specifically designed to automate product QC testing in the flavour and fragrance industry.
Security is assured through centralized management of users and instruments, accessible to system administrators from anywhere on a network. For regulated environments, 21 CFR Part 11 compliance is supported along with electronic-signature and an encrypted, all-in-one data file format. CompassCDS offers a safe and cost-effective way for customers to upgrade their systems through its back-compatibility with previously installed instruments drivers.

Streaming Protocol Makes Gene Data Sharing Future-ProofNews
The Large Scale Genomics Work Stream of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) has announced eight new implementations of its htsget protocol, a standard released in October 2017 for accessing large-scale genomic sequencing data online that does not depend on file transfers. The protocol and interoperability testing are reported in a paper released online this week in the journal Bioinformatics.
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.
