Pittcon 2018 in Pictures

Ever wonder what goes in to exhibiting at a major analytical science tradeshow? I’m glad you asked! Earlier this year I had the opportunity to travel to Pittcon 2018 (Feb 26 – Mar 1) for my first scientific conference as a member of industry, and an exhibitor rather than as an academic. I’ll take you behind the scenes of ACD/Labs’ conference machine to give you an idea of what it’s really like to exhibit at a conference. Read more →

AAPS 2017: Applying QbD in Process and Impurity Control Strategy Development

Andrew Anderson reports on the 2017 AAPS Annual Conference by taking a closer look at his recent byline in Laboratory Equipment. He also introduces Joe DiMartino, ACD/Labs' newly appointed solution manager for Luminata, and previews Joe's recent Q&A with Outsourcing-Pharma.com, which discusses how QbD and impurity control management directly impact process development within pharmaceutical R&D organizations.

SMASH 2017, Baveno, Italy. Are you ready?

Join us next week in beautiful Baveno, Italy, for SMASH 2017. This year’s organizing committee took the light-hearted step of naming each session/workshop after the name of a popular song. Staying with this theme, we are organizing our Software Symposium titled “Stairway to Heaven” on Sunday, Sept. 17th, where we intend to present to you all of the very exciting developments in the world of ACD/Labs.

Thinking outside the box with metabolic musings: A prequel to ASMS 2017

The fascinating world of metabolite identification is something I’ve been learning a lot about recently. The process of drug discovery to drug development to meeting regulations, and the complicated (often manual) workflow. My informant is colleague, Richard Lee. An easy-going and friendly guy with a vast resource of information ranging from metabolite research to cheesy chick flicks (don’t tell him I shared the latter). Read on to learn more about his research and what we'll be discussing at ASMS 2017 this week! Read more →


The Land of Informatics & Life Sciences: Bio-IT World 2017

If you happen to be at Bio-IT World this year, be sure to stop by booth #423 to meet the ACD/Labs team and learn more about our solutions; including our new impurity profile information management solution Luminata. We’ll be busy with a number of activities in addition to networking with our fellow peers. Read on for an overview of what our team has planned for the show and where you can find us. Read more →


LabTube Takes a Look at Luminata during PITTCON 2017

PITTCON 2017 was a particularly big event for the ACD/Labs team this year because we were focused on the launch of Luminata, our new informatics solution for comprehensive impurity and characterization management. The five days we spent in Chicago were the culmination of months of hard work across the entire organization, and I’m pleased to say that the launch went off without a hitch. I had the opportunity to meet with the folks at LabTube to talk about ACD/Labs and our vision for Luminata. Watch the video in our post. Read more →


ACD/Labs NMR Predictors Over the Years, at ENC 2017

Back in 1996, I recall someone saying that prediction software such as ACD/Labs NMR Predictors would eliminate the need to run lab experiments, which would be replaced with “paper chemistry”. Organic chemistry researchers were even more cynical because they believed that nomenclature software - like ACD/Name - would enable students to avoid learning nomenclature rules. Overall, the faculty were concerned that ACD/NMR Predictors and ACD/Name put their jobs at risk. Fast-forward 21 years later, and I find myself a part of the ACD/Labs team that makes all these wonderful things possible. Read more →
