As in a relay race, Academic research involves continual personnel change and handover of information. Projects, resources, researchers and students move on leaving behind vast amounts of information and knowledge legacy that needs to be taken forward by the next generation. The ability to explore legacy data and easily continue on-going projects are key factors for successful academic research. In addition, collaboration across different groups, universities and geographies is now more important than ever.
Dotmatics provides a comprehensive web-based electronic laboratory environment that enables academic researchers to store, search and analyse experimental information including reactions, documents and spectra in a simple preconfigured solution.
One-Click ELN, an affordable solution to collect, document and search research data: The One-Click ELN is an easy to deploy, low-cost and preconfigured version of Dotmatics’ flagship Studies Notebook (ELN). The One-Click ELN forms part of an Academic Program focused on enhancing the quality of data management (including storing and searching information), collaboration with colleagues, and IP protection in academic research.
The One-Click ELN has three configurations to suit most scientists in Academia:
- ChemELN is a configuration designed for scientists working in the lab and dealing with multiple areas of chemistry
- BioELN is a configuration ideal for storing, searching and reporting biological assays
- UniELN is a universal ELN to store experiments in a free-format configuration
Dotmatics offers the academic community the opportunity to instantly access the One-Click ELN and begin recording and sharing information immediately without any heavy IT involvement or deployment concerns. The One-Click ELN also includes Elemental, Dotmatics’ chemistry sketching and property calculator. Additional visualisation and analysis tools such as Vortex and Dotmatics for Office are available if required.
Analyzing and visualizing data: Vortex from Dotmatics is a versatile and comprehensive data visualization and analysis tool, which has an extra benefit of being chemistry-enabled, so no third party solutions are required to visualize molecular structures. It is designed to analyze millions of data points in an effective and rapid manner. Interactive multiple data plots, graphs, tables and filters coupled with statistical analysis tools enable you to uncover information that may be hidden in a deluge of data. Vortex can be used in conjunction with Browser to seamlessly query and analyse data stored in your databases.
D4O (Dotmatics for Office): This add-on for Microsoft applications enables chemical structure visualisation within spreadsheets, thus coupling all the power of Microsoft Excel, Word, Powerpoint and Outlook with Dotmatics’ chemistry property calculators and search capabilities.
