AnIML Workshop at Pittcon 2017
On Tuesday morning, we'll be hosting the workshop session "Analytical Information Markup Language (AnIML) Data Standard in Action". The presentations will be according the following schedule from 8:30 to 11:50 am in room W176C:
If you are attending the SLAS 2017 conference, you should check out the following AnIML-related activities. Besides several talks in the technical program, several vendors are showing AnIML-enabled products on the exhibition floor. The SiLA Consortium is showing a live demo of several vendors with adjacent booths, all connected. AnIML is used to transfer the instrument data on top of the SiLA protocols.
We're happy to announce a partnership with ChemAxon, a leader in providing chemistry software solutions and consulting services for life science research. Our partnership allows users to manage analytical data in ChemAxon's chemistry software solutions using open standards.
We're delighted to welcome Xavo to our family of partners. Xavo has integrated Seahorse Web Edition into their Xavo Lab Logistics (XLL) product. XLL is an innovative sample management solution to track all kinds of activities in the laboratory. You can learn all about it on Xavo's web pages.
It was time to give our corporate identity a little visual refresher. The first visible result is the new design of the web site. For the first time, we are using web fonts to spice up the typography a bit. Headings and certain navigation elements are done using the excellent Lato font by Łukasz Dziedzic. "Lato" is Polish and means "Summer". We liked the lightweight, clear and refreshing look.
I recently attended the SLAS2013 conference in Orlando. One of the items on my agenda was the Standards Special Interest Group (SIG) which I'm now chairing. The Standards Initiatives SIG promotes standardization and interoperability of instruments and data systems in the laboratory. This SIG is a unique forum which brings together two general groups of stakeholders: standard builders and standard consumers. Its purpose is to raise awareness of community-driven standardization efforts currently underway. It also provides a forum to foster collaboration between standards initiatives to ensure greater impact and better utilization of community resources.
I'm happy to report that we're not the only ones showcasing AnIML-enabled solutions at Pittcon. It's great to see AnIML being picked up by others. After all, a standard is only a standard if organizations actually adopt it.
Here's a nice video description of the Software-Cluster.
BSSN Software is now part of the Software-Cluster, Europe's most powerful network of companies and training & research institutions in the area of software development. The cluster region spans a wide area in the southwest of Germany around the cities of Darmstadt, Kaiserslautern, Karlsruhe, Saarbrücken and Walldorf.
For those of you attending SLAS 2012 in San Diego next week, I've put together a collection of activities around the emerging AnIML standard at the conference. Please leave a comment if I missed anything.
