Open-source version of the chemistry electronic lab notebook released for Indigo ELN

GGA Software Services LLC has released version 1.0 of Indigo ELN, the open-source version of the chemistry electronic lab notebook that was developed by one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies.
GGA received the exclusive license from this global pharmaceutical company to create and distribute the open-source version, and it has been working to modify the pharmaceutical company's internal chemistry ELN for distribution as an open-source application. The system is now publically available for downloading at GGA's website ( under the open-source GNU General Public License, version 3.
"Indigo ELN represents a leading cost-effective alternative to commercial ELN products: Users can upgrade their existing ELN with a proven and tested open-source platform, and they can do it at no charge,‰ said Richard Golob, GGA's President and Chief Executive Officer. Golob continued, "Through our own open-source cheminformatics initiative, GGA has been contributing software tools to the scientific community, and we regard this initiative with one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies as a natural extension of our existing commitment to open-source technologies.‰
Benefitting from the considerable investment by this global pharmaceutical company in its internal chemistry ELN, Indigo ELN provides scientists with a proven way to create, store, retrieve, and share electronic records of chemistry information in ways that meet all legal, regulatory, technical, and scientific requirements. It allows scientists to prepare, plan, and analyze experiments, access relevant information, and develop new methods in the areas of synthetic chemistry, analytical chemistry, and process chemistry.
"With Indigo ELN, users will be able to enjoy the functionality of an ELN platform that has been used by thousands of scientists in the global research and development organization of GGA's partner,‰ according to Golob. Users will be able to perform functions including creating and setting up singleton experiments, running experiments and recording results, automatically registering and submitting batches, attaching related documents, and printing reports. In addition to this core package, users can integrate Indigo ELN with existing or new customer services, such as compound registration, structure verification, and analytical information services, as well as chemistry logistics systems.
Furthermore, users can integrate Indigo ELN with GGA's open source offerings, such as its Bingo® molecular search engine for Oracle database, its Ketcher® chemistry drawing tool, and its Indigo® cheminformatics engine. GGA is offering broad support for Indigo ELN, including installation and configuration services, integration of the core Indigo ELN system into the user environment and with other services, creation of custom functionality, and support and maintenance.
"For several years, GGA has worked successfully as an outsourcing partner for the global pharmaceutical company that developed the chemistry ELN, and we are confident about GGA's capability to provide Indigo ELN users with the full range of services needed to make the Indigo ELN a successful application, from installation, customization, and integration, to support and maintenance," said Golob.
