Manage analysis workflow from request to final report
Analytical research lab needed a homogeneous platform to manage spectra and chromatograms of various techniques, e.g. NMR, MS, DSC/TGA, UV-IR, to facilitate analysis execution, comparison and knowledge sharing.
The proposed system based on ACD/Spectrus platform consisted in:
- An Analytical Research Database to store all analytical data and support workflow management
- An input form to submit a new request of analysis. A popup form has been created with customer desired format/label/constraints consisting in mandatory fields, controlled picklist values, molecule sketcher to draw a molecular structure and automatically calculate chemical properties (formula, molecular weight, monoisotopic mass, etc..), Safety Data Sheet (SDS) file attachment and analysis checkboxes with the list of all the available analysis.
- A workflow management system implemented via:
- Popup forms to manage request acceptance, single analysis completion
- Email notification to inform involved users
- Status changes rules to identify open, closed, to be approved or approved requests
