You are right this conversation is usefull if pdf doc are homogenous but does not help in your case. Best option for you is to parse pdf using distiller

There are numerous free and open source pdf parsers. I would use one of them to do this job. Take a look at this one: https://pdfparser.org/demo

Also google pdf parser and you can see how many good tools exist to do this job. This one also looks interesting: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/weve-built-best-pdf-parsing-tool-here-how-we-did-mathieu-stennier/

Also check if the instrument can generate result files in some other structured format or not.

Hi Said,

I just want to understand how it will lead to data integrity issue unless there is problem with parsing.
we will still have the pdf generated by equipment that can be used any where else.
I believe you need to use the result generated from equipment somewhere.

John, adding another brick of software in our landscape will give us another level of complexity for the applications interfacing.

Arindam, PDF as some advantages, it’s the common file format we can always get from equipments, either directly through application export option or through virtual PDF printer.

Uppal, it’s a two steps process in Labware, conversion from PDF to TXT and after parsing in the TXT file result. I see risk in PDF to TXT conversion because it’s totally breaking down the PDF file layout (tables are altered, Graphs removed,…). Any other opinion regarding this kind of conversion process in the frame of D.I is welcome?

I am interested to know if someone used “industrially” that PDF parsing functionality in Labware ??

LabWare provides a list server forum for customers. You would get a lot more experienced feedback if you posted this question there.
