Eliminating the Logistical Challenges of NMR Data Processing with Browser-Based Software
contributed by ACD Labs |
NMR data acquisition and processing often occur separately in the modern laboratory. Scientists acquire data from instrument-vendor software run on a computer (workstation) physically connected to the instrument. To free up time on shared instruments, they then transfer the data to a different, unconnected computer for processing.
What software should be used for the processing step? The vendor software from the workstation seems like the obvious answer. But these programs are designed primarily for acquisition, not processing. Their processing tools are often difficult to use or don’t allow you to get the information you need from your NMR data. Also, vendor software often can’t process data acquired on other vendor’s instruments. This creates problems for institutions with instruments from multiple vendors.
Third-party data processing software solves many of these problems. It provides advanced NMR processing tools in a vendor-neutral application. So users have all the necessary tools to process files from any instrument, without being tied to the instrument itself.
