PerkinElmer Integrates Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) with Elsevier’s Reaxys® Chemistry Workflow Solution
Article Sep 20, 2012
PerkinElmer, Inc., a global leader focused on improving the health and safety of people and the environment, has announced that its electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) can now be seamlessly integrated with Elsevier’s Reaxys®, a web-based workflow solution designed for chemistry researchers in drug discovery, chemicals and academic research.
“As chemists are increasingly turning to electronic laboratory notebooks to plan, execute and record their experiments, they also need ready access to complementary tools and data sources directly within the ELN interface.” said Michael Stapleton, general manager, PerkinElmer Informatics, “The interoperability of our ELN and Elsevier’s Reaxys provides researchers with access to extensive information on chemical compounds and related physical and pharmacological properties so that they can make better decisions. This integration also allows researchers to save valuable time by providing the ability to rapidly search and import external data while eliminating transcription errors.”
Capturing Reaxys content through PerkinElmer’s ELN gives researchers the power to simultaneously leverage information from both sources in order to make critical decisions throughout the chemistry research workflow. Chemical searches in Reaxys can be initiated in an experimental section in the ELN, based on existing or newly drawn compounds or reactions, and results are immediately available. Once suitable reactions are located and selected in Reaxys, they can be exported directly to the ELN and inserted into a pre-designed experiment, complete with reaction scheme, stoichimetry table and preparation text.
PerkinElmer and Elsevier will host an informative workshop at the American Chemical Society in Philadelphia, PA on August 20th at 8:30 am EST to demonstrate and discuss the benefits of integrating Reaxys and PerkinElmer’s ELN. To register for the workshop, signup here.
Integrating the ELN with Reaxys is available at no extra charge to customers who already have both systems.
Machine learning modeling is one of the most eagerly adopted technologies across healthcare. An important technology in this area is robot-assisted surgery, where the hope is that AI’s rapid evolution will soon allow machine learning models to enhance current surgical practice. This article reviews the current and close future applications of machine learning in burn surgery and microsurgery.READ MORE
New developments in pharmaceuticals have made new drugs and treatments available, enhancing options and quality of life for patients. Advanced data analytics solutions mean treatments are more effective and affordable, and less intrusive. However, these evolutions will mean major changes in how companies interact with patients and caregivers, and this will necessitate new capabilities for operations and supply chain.READ MORE
Many recent advances in research have aimed to maximize the amount of data we can produce. But handling all that data is a challenge, and in analytical chemistry, data has more complexity and value than everyday spreadsheets, and tools matching that complexity will be needed to get data back into shape. We discussed how the field should approach these challenges with Andrew Anderson and , Graham McGibbon of Toronto-based analytical software supplier ACD/Labs.READ MORE
