In many instances, relevant data exists, yet often, it is not directly accessible, and either cannot be utilized for data-driven analyses or requires painstaking manual efforts to extract. One classical instance of this type is PDF documents. In this presentation, we will demonstrate an example of standardized PDF reports in the Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) and how the JMP Scripting Language can automate data extraction from these PDF files. The presentation will also show how the resulting scripts can be packaged as an Add-in for distribution to many users.
