NMR for Everyone—Manchester University Provides Access to Industry-Leading Software


Site-wide access to off-line NMR processing software gives research staff and students power to process and report their own NMR data, away from the instrument and in the comfort of their own lab, office, or home.

Toronto, Canada (August 8, 2007)—Last’s year’s acquisition of a site license of ACD/2D NMR Processor showed the students and faculty at Manchester University, School of Chemistry just how easy it can be to gain access to their own NMR data. Now, the School has decided to retain the license, freeing up more valuable instrument time for research and learning, and providing additional access outside of Manchester’s network.

The School was looking for NMR processing software that could ease the burden on NMR experts and instrument time allowing users to process their own data away from the instrument. The software needed to be reliable yet user-friendly enough to be self-teaching. ACD/2D NMR Processor was a perfect fit, and a site license granting access to authorized users over the University’s network were implemented.

Ideal for both the NMR expert or occasional user, ACD/Labs NMR Processors bring NMR spectrum interpretation to the forefront with such capabilities as allowing chemical structures to be attached to spectra, automatically determining coupling constants, and creating multiplet reports with the click of a button. In addition, custom-made reports can be easily created for presentations, publications, and assignments.

“The volume and range of the School NMR services continues to expand, with more than 50,000 spectra being produced by our autosampler based spectrometers last year.” said Roger Speak, Aanlytical Services Manager, Manchester University School of Chemistry. “We looked at several packages, however the server resident, multi-seat ACD license provided the best available facilities with exceptional value for the money.”

In addition to the power and ease of use of ACD/2D NMR Processor, users at Manchester were impressed with how easy it was to control access to the software for large numbers of users via the license server. With increased access, students, and research staff can use ACD/2D NMR Processor whether on the University campus or at home, locally on their personal computers or laptops, or via the internet through a VPN.

ACD/Labs software site licenses provide access to an unlimited number of users within an organization, allowing everyone who needs it to benefit from its use. Site licenses for academia are a much more cost-effective option than buying multiple licenses and allow greater flexibility to the variety of people who can use it.

About The University of Manchester
The University of Manchester is Britain’s first chartered university of the 21st century and is the largest single-site higher education institution in the UK. The University was named ’ University of the Year ‘ in the Times Higher Education Supplement awards in 2005 and by the Sunday Times in 2006.
The School of Chemistry continues Manchester’s long and distinguished history of chemical innovation, from the birth of modern chemistry with John Dalton, through to recent Nobel prize winners and Manchester students John Polanyi and Michael Smith.
The School has one of the largest research schools in the UK and, with 620 students, the second largest undergraduate population. It is the premier institution for chemistry in the North West of England, and one of the handful of truly internationally competitive chemistry schools in the UK.
