Automatic characterization report
Automatic characterization report to increase return on investment
Within the analytical research lab reports production was a time-demanding task requiring manual editing and data transcription. Having an automatic report generation system was crucial to reduce time and improve quality. With templates definition, macro and scripts it was possible to reach project goal, in particular:
- Templates have been created for each single technique based on customer desired format by means of ACD/ChemSketch and macro scripting
- A global template has been created to produce the final characterisation report, which consists in collecting in a single document all spectra, chromatograms, molecules, spectrum tables and parameters produced in the characterisation activity. Template consists in a Microsoft Word file (.dotx) with bookmarks and formatting styles according to the customer needs.
- Finally, with scripting it has been possible to take information from the analytical database and feed the corresponding templates to produce reports with just one click.
