Laboratory Automation and Management System with Standardized Interface for BRUKER Spectrometers
As a software tool for the laboratory network, SampleTrack manages all automation process steps in an analytical environment. The order setup entry can be simultaneously derived from variable sources including spreadsheets, Web client, SampleTrack client, or through an external LIMS system. Consequently, all available instruments and preparation robots are fed with the generated orders.
SampleTrack software is extremely flexible in all kinds of laboratory environments. In an open access system SampleTrack provides effective timesaving and resource sharing. Any client can set up and submit orders with the SampleTrack EasyWeb Dialog from any place within a network, Intranet or Internet. This delivers:
SampleTrack provides an array of features for the modern laboratory:
SampleTracks typical sphere of influence is within the analytical laboratory. All worksteps can be processed individually from SampleTrack or in conjunction with an external LIMS. Spectra data, document data, and an array of other data types can be quickly and easily managed by SampleTrack through mouse click or Drag & Drop.
As standard program, SampleTrack uses the powerful AMIX-VIEWER for spectra visualization. The AMIX-VIEWER can compare new spectra with preexisting spectra data.
In order to ease the verification of the measurement results and structure elucidation SampleTrack provides the possibility of interaction with other analytical applications such as TopSpin® etc.
Windows® applications (e.g., for reports) and structure editors, e.g., MDL® ISIS/Draw™, can be linked directly with SampleTrack.
The SampleTrack EasyWeb interface provides structure and spectra viewing capabilities, including zooming in and out.
Standard Automation Interface for BRUKER NMR Devices
SampleTrack supports all the AVANCE™ series spectrometers which utilize XWIN-NMR™ 3.1 patch level 11 or higher or TopSpin® 1.2 or higher. SampleTrack's automation interface for spectrometers is built on the IconNMR™ platform. Within IconNMR all orders from SampleTrack are executed automatically. Other interfaces for BEST (Bruker Efficient Sample Transfer) systems, including SampleRail™, GILSON® and TECAN®, are also available.
Besides being a complete link to NMR and other kinds of spectrometers, SampleTrack can be used in conjunction with the following automation and preparation products:
SampleTrack is designed to optimize sample tracking, beginning at the submitter's site and continuing through to the final return of results. Information management and hardware control are carried out concurrently as the sample proceeds from the synthesis laboratory through the analytical procedure. SampleTrack has an open-system design which provides for convenient and easy laboratory automation integration. Areas that can be customized include barcode printing, automatic barcode reading and sample identification.
