Hi everyone, and welcome to this Bioconference Live presentation on mobile apps for scientists. Today I am going to be talking about apps for scientists that can be used on mobile devices . . . like this one. My name is Rory Macneil, and I’m from Axiope. We provide an electronic lab notebook that includes a sample management capability, and you can use it on an iPad. It’s called eCAT. As part of the presentation I’m going to show you eCAT on the iPad in action, and how it’s useful in the lab. Let me get started by setting the scene with an overview of what we’ll be covering today. Please fire away with questions at any time during the presentation. I may respond to a question as it comes in, or if it looks as if it’s going to interrupt the flow I will hold off and answer the question in the Q&A session at the end. Also please feel free to identify yourself and let me know what your particular interest in the presentation is. I’ll try to cover things in a way that makes the presentation relevant to your interest.
So, here’s a quick overview of what we’re going to cover today.

Molecular Materials Informatics – Alan Clark Mobile molecular datasheet is flagship Others, e.g. Reaction101 , which allows editing of a chemical reaction, consisting of reactants, products and reagents, which are defined by structures, names and stoichiometry.
So that’s an example of the kind of application that’s coming soon. It takes advantage of the development of mobile platforms to enable much richer use of mobile devices encompassing a broader range of research activities.
Thanks for listening. Now I’d like to turn to questions. I’ll start with ones that have already come in, but feel free to ask more as we get into the Q&A.
