Overview

A Volume in the Wiley-Interscience Series on Laboratory Automation.

The complete, step-by-step guide to using Visual Basic(r) in a laboratory setting Visual

Basic(r) is fast becoming the de facto laboratory programming language, yet existing books typically discuss applications that have nothing to do with science and engineering. This primer fills the gap in the field, showing professionals seeking to improve the productivity of their laboratories how to use Visual Basic(r) to automate laboratory processes.

Automating Science and Engineering Laboratories with Visual Basic(r) helps laboratory professionals decide when and if to use Visual Basic(r) and how to combine it with the many computing technologies used in modern laboratories such as RS-232 port communications, TCP/IP networking, and event-driven control, to name a few. With an emphasis on getting readers programming immediately, the book provides clear guidelines to the appropriate programming techniques as well as custom-developed software tools. Readers will learn how to build applications to control laboratory instruments, collect and process experimental data, create interactive graphical applications, and more.

Boasting many working examples with the complete source code and backward compatibility to previous versions of Visual Basic(r), Automating Science and Engineering Laboratories with Visual Basic(r) is an indispensable teaching tool for nonprogrammers and a useful reference for more experienced practitioners.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Presents techniques for solving problems that commonly arise in a laboratory using Visual Basic 6.0, including communication through an RS-232 port and TCP/IP network connection, development of instrument controllers, and the creation of interactive scientific graphical displays. The guide also provides several custom-developed software tools for building software applications such as a customizable spreadsheet class, and a class containing a variety of predefined parsing functions. Familiarity with the BASIC programming language is required. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
