Big Data in the Lab: How Lab Software Is Just Like Amazon
Survey Says…Analytical Data Management is Still a PAIN

Gearing Up for PITTCON 2016

by Sanji Bhal, Director of Marketing & Communications (ACD/Labs)

This is an exciting time of year for ACD/Labs as we gear up to attend one of the biggest conferences on our events calendar—PITTCON 2016! Live from the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, The Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy will take place from Sunday, March 6 to Thursday, March 10. Every year it attracts more than 16,000 analytical chemists and lab scientists to share the latest research and innovations that will address today’s biggest laboratory challenges.

In addition to exhibiting at booth #4058, we’ll be participating in a number of presentations, networking with our fellow scientists and discussing upcoming mixture analysis capabilities on the ACD/Spectrus Platform. To keep you in the loop on our whereabouts and what our team will be talking about during PITTCON, here is an overview of our activity:

  • Networking Session (Sunday, March 6 at 1:30 PM)—Share your experiences, best practices and perspectives on using predictive software tools in the, “Measure and/or Predict? Perspectives on Prediction Approaches with and Versus Experiments for R&D Compound Analyses,” networking session with Graham McGibbon and Sanji Bhal.
  • Product Update (Monday, March 7 at 9:00 AM)—Keep an eye out for an announcement from us with more information about updates to ACD/ChemAnalytical Workbook and the ACD/Spectrus Platform this summer!
  • Oral Presentation (Wednesday, March 9 at 8:50 AM)—Join Graham McGibbon for “Informatics for Externalization” as he addresses the challenges in data sharing and collaboration within the R&D industry. More specifically, he will discuss how using the appropriate software allows scientists to standardize a way to systematically and efficiently collaborate when sharing analytical data.
  • Poster Session (Wednesday, March 9 during morning session, 400 Aisle)—Visit Richard Lee’s poster session, “A New Approach to the Automated Identification of Metabolites in Multi-Vendor Datasets” where he’ll discuss how scientists in drug metabolism can process data and accurately and rapidly identify metabolites from a variety of mass spectrometry vendors.

If you’re attending PITTCON 2016, be sure to stop by the ACD/Labs booth to ask questions, learn more about our presentations and solutions, or simply meet a member of the ACD/Labs team! Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter, @ACDLabs, and follow along using #Pittcon16 for live updates throughout the show. Finally, for more information, visit our events page at:
