Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The ICT-CMAC (Intelligent Decision Support and Control Technologies for Continuous Manufacture and Crystallisation) project has built, as part of the overall intelligent decision support platform, a researcher focused laboratory data handling platform. Here we report the approaches taken to capture data directly from instruments, process, store and report this into our ELN (Electronic Laboratory Notebook). This seamless flow of data eliminates errors and greatly reduces the need for manual, routine post-process analysis. Case studies are described to demonstrate the efficiency of this platform and to highlight the advantages of structured data with the potential of future machine learning and intelligent decision support.
