ACD/Labs, an informatics company that is celebrating 25 years of providing analytical and chemical knowledge management solutions for R&D, this week announced the launch of a new web-based application in support of high throughput (HT) experimentation. Katalyst D2D offers a single interface for high throughput experimentation and parallel synthesis—from experimental design to final decisions. Katalyst supports the “lab of the future” through the digitization of laboratory tasks, integration with existing informatics systems, lab automation hardware, analytical instrumentation, and automated execution.

Designed to help ensure data integrity in high throughput experimentation (for reaction optimization, process development, catalyst screening, and scale-up), Katalyst D2D’s digital environment eliminates the manual transcription currently necessary between systems, as well as the painstaking process of gathering and interpreting associated analytical data. By streamlining HT workflows, organizations are able to optimize laboratory efficiency, the analysis of array-based chemistry, and the return on investment in HT robotic equipment.

Unique capabilities offered by Katalyst D2D include:

  • A single interface for high throughput experimentation. Integration with third party systems eliminates manual transcription and offers a convenient, consolidated user interface.
  • Multi-technique, vendor-agnostic high throughput analysis made possible by the ACD/Spectrus Platform. Katalyst D2D integrates with analytical instrumentation to support the execution of experiments, followed by the processing and analysis of HT data. Users can easily compare chromatograms, mass spectra, and other analytical data connected directly with the array for fast, confident decisions.
  • A fully web-based client that meets the informatics requirements of the modern laboratory through convenient user access, facile deployment and support for IT.

“Katalyst D2D was designed to improve productivity, provide conclusive scientific insights, and facilitate decision making among increasing regulatory concerns,” said Andrew Anderson, Vice President of Innovation and Informatics Strategy, ACD/Labs. “As we celebrate our 25th year in business, we will continue to align our technological expertise with our customers’ needs. Katalyst D2D is a testament to our commitment to bring innovation to the forefront.”

ACD/Labs showcased Katalyst D2D for the first time at Pittcon 2019 in Philadelphia, PA, March 17–21, 2019. For more information, please visit here.
