Further functionality includes:

  • Realtime upload of finished measurements
  • IconNMR status overview dashboard in LOGS, with
    • Experimental queue display for each spectrometer (upper figure)
    • Holder queue display for each spectrometer
    • Measurement history display for each spectrometer
  • IconNMR accounting page (lower figure)

New dataformat: images

Laboratory techniques, e.g. blots and gels, can generate datasets that consist of images.
These are recognised by LOGS and can be uploaded automatically, added as datasets and assigned to samples, in analogy to datasets created by more typical spectroscopic techniques.

Currently recognised are files of type jpg, png and tiff.

New EPR dataformat: FSC2

The dataformat “fsc2” ( can be found in use by several EPR groups. LOGS supports this format and recognizes the datasets for automatic upload, display and searching.

New microscopy imaging dataformat: CZI

The microscopy dataformat of type Carl Zeiss image (*.CZI) is recognised and supported by LOGS.

Authentication log added
