Can Calibre automatically find ISBN from files?

I'm not sure if this has already been addressed, I couldn't find it while searching the forum, but is there anyway for Calibre to search PDF files (or other files) for the ISBN and automatically import it into the meta data? Most of the ebooks I have contain a single line someplace with the ISBN prefixed by 'ISBN:' so I'd think there'd be some way for Calibre in all its awesomeness to search for this line and import it into the Meta data. I'm importing about 450 books into Calibre and most have the ISBN number like this.

Thanks for any suggestions --

Sam
