The first stage of any DigitalGlassware® experiment is the creation of a Recipe, a digital record of the chemists intent in the lab (read more here). The Recipe contains all the information the chemist requires to perform the reaction safely (read more here) and reproducibly (read more here). Importantly though we utilize Recipes to enrichen data captured in the lab and help provide better insights for your chemistry (read more here). All of this is possible due to Practical Chemistry Markup Language (PCML) that DigitalGlassware® uses to codify your procedure into a Recipe.
The PCML contains everything related to your chemistry, including the chemicals, masses, volumes, techniques, equipment, safety information and the actions the user will perform in the lab and is automatically generated whenever you use our Recipe creation tools. This means regardless of skill level, all of our users have access to high quality and rich coded protocols quickly and easily. Additionally you can use our RecipeBuilder tools to make simple changes to your Recipe that automatically updated your PCML.
Alternatively if you are more code savvy you can export and import PCML records for your own analysis (read more here). In fact our PCRR (Practical Chemistry Runtime Record) builds upon your PCML post-run, adding sensor data and even outcomes to an exportable and complete digital record (read more here).
Codifying chemistry is only the first part of the journey towards better insights with DigitalGlassware®. For a fuller demonstration of the DigitalGlassware® platform you can request a free demo of the platform by clicking the button below.
