ACD/Labs has released ACD/ChemAnalytical Workbook, an all-in-one experiment, workflow, and data management tool that allows scientists to document analytical information. Designed for organic chemists and analysts working with formulated products, the workbook offers multi-technique analytical data processing and interpretation, with support for more than 150 instrument file formats. In addition, it enables the building of analytical databases with structures and interpretation information attached, for instant re-use of data; can be a replacement to paper notebooks offering a searchable repository that captures live analytical data; and can track samples and projects, and automate routine analytical tasks.
