As large scale biochemical plate assay experimentation becomes more common, the need for a central management system for organizing, storing, and analyzing plate information is becoming more important. The SurNorte Assay Management System (SAMS) provides an end-to-end solution, with a focus on providing an intuitive, feature-rich interface. The plate editor allows rapid layout of an assay, storing plate templates for later reuse. SAMS also provides an interactive, user-driven output parser. A researcher can load in CSV/TSV-formatted output from a new machine, then guide SAMS through locating any and all values to be imported. Once that’s finished, SAMS will store a machine configuration, so it can later be applied automatically to any further output from that machine. Results can be viewed within SAMS, or downloaded for further analysis elsewhere.
