Improved analysis times The latest version of Qlucore Omics Explorer 2.1 includes a log function that is helping to drive creativity and efficiency within the pharmaceutical sector. Qlucore Omics Explorer is an advanced data analysis tool that allows researchers in the life science and biotech industries to shorten analysis time and achieve results more quickly, thanks to the product’s speed and statistical analysis capabilities. The log functionality provides an easy way for researchers working in R&D to keep a step-by-


Engineering spreadsheet for technical data Adept Scientific is distributing DSP Development’s DADiSP 6.5, the latest release of the engineering spreadsheet designed specifically for technical data analysis. DADiSP 6.5 supports the processing of multi-

channel data displayed in a familiar stripchart recorder plot. Calculations on a stripchart extend to each trace and automatically produce a corresponding output stripchart. Properties such as trace colour, axis placement and colour attributes are easily specified. By providing a ‘one to many’ calculation environment stripchart processing can greatly simplify the task of multi- channel data analysis. DADiSP 6.5 adds seamless execution of

Matlab code directly from DADiSP. DADiSP 6.5 processes any built-in or custom Matlab function or script just as if it were a native DADiSP function. Matlab and DADiSP functions and data can be freely mixed. DADiSP 6.5 automatically plots series and array results from Matlab in a DADiSP Window. Matlab code embedded into a Worksheet Window formula is hot-linked and automatically re-calculates in response to source data changes. DADiSP 6.5 extends DADiSP’s Series

Processing Language to support both function and file based static and global variables. A new form-based custom dialogue box facility enables the inclusion of GUI specifications and related SPL functions in one combined file. An integrated GUI-based debugger simplifies the development of custom SPL functions. SPL’s C/C++ syntax offers a familiar and clean programming style allowing users to create custom routines using


standard programming techniques. Additional features include mouse-based visual data editing, enhanced shape and text annotations with a programmable object-handle interface, .NET and ActiveX event handling and expanded online documentation.

Statistics for quality improvement Minitab has released Minitab 16 Statistical Software, the latest version of its package used for quality improvement and statistics education. Minitab 16 offers new functionality and

features, including the Assistant, a menu-based tool designed to guide users through their analyses and help them interpret their results with confidence.

Other enhancements include: nonlinear

regression; split-plot designs; more power and sample size tools; tolerance intervals; new reporting features; new tutorials and datasets. The new Assistant feature opens the door

to statistical analysis for more people, so everyone engaged in quality improvement efforts throughout an organisation can make more effective use of their data to make the best decisions. The Assistant contains an interactive decision

tree that helps you choose the right tool and walks you through your analysis step-by-step. It has a simplified interface that is easy to understand, and includes guidelines to ensure your analysis is successful. It even provides interpretation of your output and comprehensive reports you can use to present your results.

step record of exactly what they have done during an experiment by storing log points in a detailed log file. Users can then store and access this information easily, and can even annotate each log point with specific comments, if desired. What makes the log function in Qlucore Omics

Explorer unique, however, is that each of these log points contains all of the information needed to ‘snap back’ to the exact stage when the log point was created, with all plots, colours and settings reset accordingly. Not only that, but when a researcher restores a log point in this way, the application will allow the user to continue with the analysis from that point forward. To get even greater value from Qlucore Omics

Explorer’s log files, researchers working in R&D can share them with others. As a result, different

members of the same research group can now work together very easily, and with much greater efficiency, as each researcher can apply his or her own knowledge and unique approach to the same data, from the same starting point.

Data cartridge is one-stop solution Symyx has released the Symyx Direct 7.0 data cartridge, a one-stop solution for registering, searching and retrieving chemical and biological entities stored in relational databases. Supporting the continued expansion of biologics in today’s pharmaceutical, biotech, and materials science R&D pipelines, Symyx Direct 7.0 improves R&D efficiency, project team collaboration, and IP management by enabling multidisciplinary project teams to visualise, explore, and compare novel macromolecular sequences and chemical structures stored in a single, fully searchable corporate registry system. Many scientists today are searching for ways to

reduce off-target effects and improve the stability of chemically modified short interfering RNA (siRNA) sequences, peptides, and other large molecules. Aiding these efforts, Symyx Direct 7.0 supports natural post-translational modifications (PTM) and custom modifications while also providing seamless support for D-amino acids and complex cyclisations, including the imidazolinone fluorophore found in the fluorescent proteins. Symyx Direct 7.0 offers a new, hybrid representation that combines the best features of bioinformatics and cheminformatics notations, improving multidisciplinary collaborative research by enabling scientists to: register and retrieve molecules, reactions, and biomolecular sequences including peptides, oligonucleotides, and oligosaccharides; search for and view chemical modifications in sequences; and develop structure- activity correlations in sequences.


LIMS for wastewater laboratories Accelerate Technology Laboratories (ATL) has launched the XL BOD Master, a new product aimed at wastewater laboratories. The ATL XL BOD Master is an Excel-based software tool, integrated into Sample Master Pro LIMS, which will automatically calculate and report the BOD/CBOD results based upon Standard Methods criteria in seconds. The software will flag any data that is not within acceptable limits and will complete all required calculations. It is user friendly and can be used
