Partnership Steps towards Innovation for QC Labs

Oct 04 2023

In a new partnership announced at SMASH 2023 (Baveno, Italy, Sept 2023) informatics company ACD/Labs, a developer and supplier of software for R&D and MilliporeSigma, the US and Canada Life Science business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, announced a collaboration that will jointly progress towards innovative technology to make research and quality control in the lab more efficient and sustainable. Science and technology company MilliporeSigma is also one of the leading manufacturers/distributors of certified reference material worldwide.

The first release version of MilliporeSigma’s digital reference material (dRM) platform, ChemisTwin™, combines ACD/Labs’ automated structure verification and prediction capabilities with its own expertise in high quality reference materials manufacturing to provide scientists in quality control labs with an automated structure verification tool by NMR.

"With increasing demand for digital solutions in life sciences, we're proud to provide enabling technologies for MilliporeSigma’s digital reference material ChemisTwin™ platform,” said Andrew Anderson, Vice President of Informatics and Innovation Strategy at ACD/Labs. “Our partnership will empower scientists with a digital means for effective and robust structure verification.”

“Our purpose is to shape the future of analytical testing, to make research and quality control in laboratories more efficient and sustainable. The launch of the ChemisTwin™ platform is a breakthrough innovation in our journey toward this objective, ultimately impacting life and health with science,” said Coralie Leonard, platform project lead and Digital Business Model Developer, Analytical Chemistry at MilliporeSigma. "We have chosen to partner with ACD/Labs not only for their strong expertise in NMR spectral prediction and comparison, but also because they share our vision and passion to be a driver of industry change.”
