AUSREG'S
AUSTRALIAN CHEMICAL DATA

Version 5.0 and updates. (for DOS 3.x and newer.)
(can be launched from Windows 3.x and Windows 9x)


            AUSREG needed a computer-based chemical data package that:
 
                            a) was easy to use,
                            b) was affordable,
                            c) would run on an IBM compatible computer,
                            d) did not require CD hardware,
                            e) included Australian Dangerous Goods and Poisons regulations,
                            f) could be readily updated, as regulations changed,
                                or more data came to hand,
                            g) could be expanded to cover more chemicals as the need arose.

There wasn't one......!!!!


            Accordingly,AUSREG developed it's own. That was version 1.0, which has since been released as shareware.

Click on SAMPLE to obtain a sampler of the current version (5).

This package is likely to be of interest to schools, smaller industrial laboratories, and anybody else who has a need for a simple "look-up" program for a wide range of laboratory chemicals, giving not only the physical data, but also identifying the requirements of Australian regulations.


New in version 5.0:
        The operating system was re-written. This allowed more colours to be used in displaying the text, added more flexibility to the print function, and made the whole package a whole lot smaller for the same data. It also made the updating of chemical files easier. All the data has been re-checked, and updated as necessary.

        There is provision for a sub-directory called \XTRA, into which you may put your own ASCII text files from any source.

        There is now available a facility for writing, saving and printing two sizes of LABELS and an EXTRACT for each of the chemical files. This applies equally to Custom Files and files in the \XTRA directory, as it does to package files.

New in Update to February 1997:
        Some chemical files have been updated because of changes to regulations, mostly Poisons Regulations. Some new chemicals have been added to the package, with corresponding entries in the Alphabetical Cross Reference and in the Appendices. Minor changes to the main program to make it just a little more user-friendly.

Still being updated, as at 27th October 2004:
        This package is in daily use, and is being updated almost every day. New chemicals, new data sections, updated regulations, etc., etc.. There are also a few new functions e.g. text search ALL chemical files.
This is a dynamic suite of executables and data files, and will continue to grow and be updated.
Registered users are welcome to obtain free updates by email, even if you are updating from earlier versions than the current one. i.e. If you have a version previous to 5.0, then send us an email and get the whole new package by email - be warned, it is now quite a few megabytes.

Data Collection:
        The data in this package is derivative. That means that it is drawn from existing published, or even unpublished, information. This also means that AUSREG offers the data in good faith, but cannot claim authorship or responsibility as to the accuracy of every item. Indeed, on many chemicals, the sources used have disagreed.

        The approach taken by AUSREG is as follows: Whenever two or more sources have claimed different data values, or have disagreed as to the classification of a chemical, AUSREG has recorded the "worst case". It is felt that it is wiser to record the lowest Flash Point, the lowest Boiling Point, the lowest LD50, and to record the chemical as dangerous goods if at least one source so indicates.
This data package is not just a list of "nasties".
        For persons handling chemicals, it is just as important to know when a chemical is not dangerous. For this reason, the chemicals included in this package were chosen originally for their general availability, rather than for their antisocial properties. We may still have missed some of your favourites. If we have, either add them to your Custom Files, or ask AUSREG to include them in the next update.

Planned Updates:
        A number of new chemicals have been added to the master AUSREG copy, and will be released in updates. for example, a molecular weight calculater has been added to the package, accessible from most screens by pressing F5. This will be especially useful when writing your own custom files. It will also run quite independantly of the main package if required.

Discount and Support:
        Registered users will be offered updates (free by email) and additional disks at considerable discount. There is no charge for support for AUSREG products and services.

Large software companies please note !!!!!

Free Sampler version.
        To obtain a free sampler (superceded) version, bare bones so-to-speak, click on SAMPLE.
Send us an e-mail request, and we will e-mail a zipped copy back to you, or you can download it directly from the Downloads page.

        If you have any difficulties in running this software, or any suggestions for enhancements or additional chemicals, please contact email: AUSREG

* We are particularly keen to hear of any data you would like added to the Appendices. *
