Welcome to AnIML

The Analytical Information Markup Language (AnIML) is the emerging ASTM XML standard for analytical chemistry and biological data. It is a combination of:

  • A core schema that defines how to store any kind of analytical data;
  • A technique schema to describe how to store data for a given analytical technique;
  • A set of technique definition documents. These XML files, one per analytical technique, apply tight constraints to the flexible core and in turn are defined by the Technique Schema;
  • Extensions to Technique Definitions are possible to accommodate vendor- and institution-specific data fields.
