New mobile multi-media capture application lets scientists take laboratory data into their hands with accurate, real-time recording at the bench

Accelrys, Inc., a leading provider of scientific innovation lifecycle management solutions, has announced its next-generation mobile strategy for the laboratory―to provide a flexible and secure mobile computing environment that effectively connects scientists, equipment and materials in today’s laboratories where an increasing number and variety of mobile devices, from smart phones to tablet computers, are in use. With over a decade of experience in pioneering paperless, mobile computing and wireless compliance capabilities in regulated laboratories, Accelrys will empower organizations to deploy purpose-built mobile applications in the lab from research to manufacturing, satisfying specific workflow requirements in accordance with Good Manufacturing Practice. Further advancing this mobile strategy, Accelrys Capture is a new mobile multi-media capture application that facilitates rapid, paperless recording at the laboratory bench, significantly improving workflow flexibility, efficiency and productivity.

Accelrys technology has raised the bar in ensuring that laboratory data meets prerequisite requirements before being recorded, thereby reducing review time and rework loops and providing regulated companies with the potential for significant cost savings. Automated compliance solutions from Accelrys include validation-ready wireless infrastructure, validation-ready handheld devices for tracking/tracing process-linked data and numerous instrument-to-procedure integrations running on handheld devices in regulated laboratory environments.

“Proven Accelrys technology makes the next generation of mobile laboratory computing possible,” said Leif E. Pedersen, senior vice president of marketing, product management and corporate development at Accelrys.  “Accelrys Capture is as easy to use as paper while offering scientists the opportunity to work more intuitively, efficiently and productively in today’s integrated laboratory—with all the flexibility, integration and automation benefits of an electronic system in the palm of the hand.”

New Mobile Technology Facilitates Accurate, Real-time Recording at the Bench
Accelrys Capture allows scientists to work more intuitively, efficiently and productively with laboratory informatics software like the Accelrys Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN). The application’s easy-to-use interface provides a straightforward and secure way for scientists to enter information, view procedures, capture data from laboratory instrumentation by using small mobile devices and leverage built-in functionality such as cameras that facilitate both the recording and sharing of experimental findings.

By putting procedures and data directly into scientists’ hands, Accelrys Capture offers the following benefits:

- Increased Lab Efficiency through the ability to enter data quickly and look up procedures using a single, small mobile device; also the ability to make instant procedural annotations at the bench without requiring scientists to document changes at remote computers outside the lab
Improved Staff Motivation by being able to work flexibly and intuitively with the focus on science using modern state-of-the-art mobile devices

- Enhanced Data Quality through direct data entry at the bench where data is created and observations made; fewer data-entry and data-transfer errors

- Reduced Cycle Times by removing bottlenecks in laboratory processes

Accelrys Capture is initially provided as an addition to the Accelrys Electronic Laboratory Notebook for fast and easy data capture at the bench; it will subsequently be extended to other laboratory informatics products such as Accelrys LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) and Accelrys LES (Laboratory Execution System).

Through integration with the Accelrys Enterprise Platform, Accelrys Capture gains access to additional functionality available in the Accelrys Component Collections including the Accelrys Mobile Collection which allows developers to build scientific protocols for deployment to mobile devices. The Accelrys Enterprise Platform gives scientists the capability to quickly search reference information and track the decisions impacting their laboratory work and research hypotheses. Connecting mobile devices with the powerful search and presentation capabilities of the Accelrys Enterprise Platform eliminates tedious, often unnecessary library work in favor of more productive and value-added bench work.
