> >Are any of you aware of any tool that can be used to read a container label and identify/capture the information?
There is an international effort looking at this opportunity. For those who happen to be in Boston this week, there will be a workshop tomorrow at 5 PM to discuss this effort. The details are:
International Chemical Identifier (InChI) QR Code Consultation Workshops
The International Chemical Identifier (InChI) is a text string that encodes chemical structure and provides a means to search databases for the structure. IUPAC and the InChI Trust (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.inchi-2Dtrust.org_&d=BQIFAg&c=lb62iw4YL4RFalcE2hQUQealT9-RXrryqt9KZX2qu2s&r=meWM1Buqv4IQ27AlK1OJRjcQl09S1Zta6YXKalY_Io0&m=nBam0NNalTLnFKm1A-6Vdhf1rqxuSBSe44f1sG8GBjw&s=4gv3CxwsTIO_cT69HzyuPkvX2ogiGEf_jhT1uUC388Y&e= ) are examining development of a QR code (2D bar code) version of the InChI. We wish to consult with industry/regulatory/academic sector users to identify and prioritise additional information that could/should be included in the QR code at a series of workshops.
The additional information will enhance the value and commercial utility of the QR InChI. Possibilities to be evaluated and elaborated upon include: health/safety information (UN GHS and/or safety data URL); catalog code; batch number; inventory information; sample composition/purity. This project is complementary to another user-focused project that is developing InChI for states and mixtures.

I will be attending this workshop and can supply further information I gather there to people interested if you let me know you are.
Let me know if you have any questions about this.
