Easy Configuration, Fast Adoption and Improved Productivity Drives Faster Innovation in Today's Science-Driven World

Accelrys, Inc., a leading provider of scientific innovation lifecycle management solutions, has announced the release of Accelrys Notebook 5.0, a flexible, multi-discipline electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) with significant new capabilities for customizing work environments and connecting to existing laboratory software without complex integration and advanced programming support. As an easy-to-use ELN that deploys out of the box on premises or in the cloud, Accelrys Notebook 5.0 eases the transition to the digital lab, enhancing the way researchers capture, share and reuse experimental information, ultimately helping organizations move innovative new products to market more quickly.

"As laboratories generate more and more data, old paper-based systems for managing that data are no longer adequate," said Michael Elliott, chief executive officer of market research firm Atrium Research. "However, our most recent survey has found that simplicity in deployment, use, maintenance and upgrades has become among the most important selection factors―and criteria―for successful implementations of electronic lab notebooks. The market is shifting to require the basic capabilities to move from paper to digital notebooks, with low cost-of-ownership and a simple user experience."

Designed to meet the requirements of laboratories needing to manage an increasing amount of data with low total-cost-of-ownership, Accelrys Notebook 5.0 offers these specific enhancements:

• Easy to configure – Organizations can easily configure Accelrys Notebook to support their workflows, applications and environment without enlisting additional services support. Researchers with little or no software experience can create, test and publish scientific protocols that make it easier to access, analyze and report data. Further integration with the Accelrys Enterprise Platform and Accelrys Pipeline Pilot workflow authoring application enables customers to quickly connect Accelrys Notebook 5.0 with existing lab software including laboratory informatics, materials and inventory management systems, with no advanced programming required.

• Improved productivity and immediate access – By making it possible to easily search and find experiment data, observations and results, Accelrys Notebook 5.0 eliminates the need to repeat experiments―saving researchers time and boosting productivity. Immediate updates and notifications allow global partners to share information instantly. Digital signatures and workflow alerts improve intellectual property protection.

• Fast user adoption – A simple user interface and easy-to-use features significantly reduce training time, resulting in accelerated adoption and fast deployment. Researchers can store, search and share Accelrys Notebook entries from any location and the notebook can be configured to work securely inside and outside the corporate firewall.

Accelrys Notebook 5.0 features a web-based client, in addition to the traditional desktop client, supporting the demands of globalization in the scientific enterprise. Researchers can capture observations and experimental data at the moment they occur via web-client on desktops, laptops and select mobile devices.

"Paper-based labs hinder accurate documentation and knowledge sharing, both of which are essential for scientific organizations to innovate and move new products to market quickly and compliantly," said Leif E. Pedersen, senior vice president of marketing, product management and corporate development at Accelrys. "Accelrys has consistently earned the praise of industry analysts covering laboratory informatics, and the latest release of Accelrys Notebook sets the bar even higher. Organizations can now quickly and easily integrate Accelrys Notebook into a laboratory ecosystem supporting end-to-end, sustainable innovation in scientific product lifecycle management."
