Automating the Processing of Analytical Data for Multiple Drug Discovery Applications

Discover innovative solutions to streamline lab processes, increase efficiency, and reduce human error.

In this on-demand webinar, scientists and IT professionals from AstraZeneca came together to discuss the challenges of manually processing and reviewing large volumes of analytical data and explain how automation software solutions are boosting efficiency and benefiting them in their day-to-day work.

Event Overview

A lab with significant analytical capacity entails managing a large number of instruments and extensive analytical data on a daily basis. Within our purification labs, analytical screening data generated for compounds submitted for purification, as well as data from instrument suitability testing, was traditionally reviewed manually by an analyst to determine the most appropriate method for purification. However, this changed with the implementation of the automation solution from Mnova. The solution includes the Chrom SST brick, which monitors the performance of Mestrelab's instruments, and Chrom Best Method, which automatically processes the screening data and identifies the best conditions for purification, thereby freeing up analyst time.

In this webinar, we explain how these solutions fit into our day-to-day work and the benefits they have brought us. We also discuss the IT architecture and integration aspects and the server-based processing logic, as well as the content and formats of the output.
