Upgrade to the current version of SDScribe™
If you are a user of an earlier version of SDScribe™, the current version of the program has many new features, including:
Existing SDS records can be designated as templates, for use when creating a new SDS.
Improved Suggestion report with styled text for emphasis. The program can paste underlined suggestions into the SDS, at the click of a button.
Stock phrases can be associated with fields on the SDS, so that relevant phrases will appear when opening the stock phrases dialog.
Product Safety Data Sheet (PSDS) capability for products which are articles. Includes an optional disclaimer which can be inserted at the top of the first page.
Improved SDS diagnostics, with green labels highlighting missing field or other content.
New sorting options for regulations and components that appear on the SDS.
Exposure limits and regulations can be individually omitted from the SDS.
Improved appearance for GHS pictograms when printed, and the option of printing the name of each pictogram.
Customizable font colors and background color bars for SDS section titles.
New header style and font size reduction options, to generate a more compact SDS.
Simplified Chinese SDS section labels and hazard categories (optional).
Export and import routines for transferring SDSs to another copy of the program.
The SDS can be used to create a new Substance record.
SDS records can be designated as archived, so that they won't normally appear in the SDS browse list.
Completely redesigned Substance record entry form, with new fields corresponding to the SDS-record fields. Improves ease of copying information in either direction (Substance -> SDS or SDS -> Substance).
Enhanced quick searches for Substance records now include product names, supplier names, synonyms, and the ability to search for components of a material. The last five quick searches appear in a drop-down menu next to the search box (Substance browse list).
Ability to calculate minimum and maximum percent concentrations from molarity levels of Substance records (dilute aqueous solutions).
Added a parts section for containers, lids, labels, packaging, and other items relevant to production. You can enter unit costs as well as volume discounts.
The optional Inventory/Production Manager handles part and ingredient stocks; generates purchase orders; prepares recipes/BOMs, calculates production costs; and records production operations. You can print batch sheets for production workers and even attach a scanned copy after it is complete.
