Electronic Lab Notebook Supports Workflow of Multiple Scientific Disciplines
Product News Apr 16, 2009
Symyx Technologies, Inc. has announced the release of Symyx Notebook 6.2.
The latest release of enterprise Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) supplements existing functionality for analytical chemistry research and biology with new capabilities supporting synthetic and medicinal chemistry investigations. This has been achieved by adding Symyx chemical representation, chemical reaction, and compound registration functionality to the core product.
The Symyx chemistry engine powers the well known ISIS scientific information platform that underlies many chemistry registration, inventory, and other systems used in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries.
In addition, Symyx Notebook 6.2 adds essential chemistry information enabling scientists to access current chemical sourcing, molecular property, synthetic methodology, bioactivity, and toxicology information from Symyx and participating content providers in the context of laboratory workflows.
With Symyx Notebook 6.2, scientists can design and share single and multi-step synthesis plans. Scientists can leverage Symyx Isentris® capabilities to explore Notebook-captured reaction information together with Symyx reaction content for improved synthesis speed.
Isentris is designed to enable scientists to combine Notebook-captured and Symyx-provided molecule and reaction information for use in retro-synthetic synthesis planning. Symyx synthesis databases accelerate successful synthesis planning by providing access to over 6 million publically available reactions.
