10.30 (EDT) / 16.30 (CEST)


Mestrelab is presenting to the Allotrope community the state of its development and commercialization of NMR converter. The first tool, an Mnova Gears brick, converts Bruker to Allotrope Data format and will allow our users to monitor any new acquired data, convert it into ADF so that it can be reviewed by the ADF Explorer browser. Future steps related to other starting formats, metadata consensus reconciliation and other additional information to be added in the ADF will also be discussed.
