Browser spectrum viewer improvements

  • New viewer layout, with multiple spectrum and metadata and parameter views
  • Existing spectrum annotations now displayable with primary data

  • For Bruker NMR:
    • Display of multiple processed NMR spectra (Bruker NMR)
    • Upload and display of processed spectra (from spectrometer)
    • A manual upload of existing datasets is recognized by LOGS, and will result in a dataset update

COVID19 NMR Project

This newsletter is normally reserved for just one thing: LOGS release news.

However, due to current events, we want to draw your attention to the COVID19 NMR project.

NMR data and analysis on samples relevant to Covid19 research is being acquired and carried out by researchers in a collaboration spanning the world.

The resulting data is then shared with unprecedented speed and transparency.

Visit covid19-nmr.com and pitch in.

Further additions and fixes

  • Marked performance enhancement in automatic upload of datasets When claiming multiple datasets in one go, the dataset id is sorted by acquisition date
  • Various bug fixes

Obtaining the LOGS release

For online users, the update is automatic. You don’t have to do anything! For LOGS platforms installed on local sites, we are emailing download links with installation instructions to the admin contact.
