What You’ll Learn

Technical Concepts

Discover why a universal, open source data standard is needed to support experiment automation, data interchange, and long-term storage.

Regulatory Compliance

From GxP to 21 CFR Part 11 and beyond, find out how AnIML facilitates compliance best practices with digital signatures and audit trails.

Workflow Augmentation

Learn how the architecture of AnIML enables you to scale up increasingly complex experiments across a spectrum of measurement techniques.

Practical Applications

Explore real-world use cases of AnIML, including LIMS integration, cross-technique data mining, post-processing and data publication, and more.

Where does AnIML come from?

AnIML is a completely open source data standard for life science that is supported and maintained by an independent, non-profit consortium.

As a file format, AnIML is based on XML. This has several benefits. First, many tools for XML manipulation are readily available off-the-shelf, making implementation easier. Second, as XML is a text-based format, AnIML documents are human-readable – an important aspect for long-term storage.

While AnIML has its roots in analytical chemistry, efforts have been made to make the data standard applicable to many other scientific domains, such as bioprocessing. AnIML is developed by the ASTM E13.15 subcommittee on analytical data which consists of volunteers from industrial, academic, government and vendor communities.

How can I put AnIML to use?

The founders of BSSN Software have been involved in AnIML since 2003. Leveraging this experience, BSSN Software has developed a comprehensive offering of products and services to assist laboratories in deploying AnIML in their processes. In addition, we support instrument manufacturers in implementing AnIML in their products.

BSSN Scientific Workbench is the first full commercial-grade AnIML implementation, allowing users to bring together data from many different instruments and measurement techniques in a single place. A number of AnIML data format converters are available to convert instrument data into the AnIML format.

Due to its constructive involvement and technical leadership in the AnIML development process, BSSN Software is uniquely positioned to deliver effective AnIML-based solutions.
