Boehringer Ingelheim Selects ChemAxon to Power Next-Generation Global Cheminformatics Platform
News Feb 15, 2013
ChemAxon has announced that Boehringer Ingelheim has chosen its chemistry software platform for multiple applications across research and development, supporting in-house activities and work with external collaboration partners.
ChemAxon technology will be used to store, search, calculate, and visualize chemical entities, properties and reactions, helping to streamline the progression from drug discovery to clinical candidate.
ChemAxon was chosen after an extensive evaluation process that built on dimensions such as ROI, performance, robustness, scalability and future development roadmap.
ChemAxon sets the standard in chemically-intelligent software for pharmaceutical R&D.
With a client list that includes all of the top 15 global pharma companies, the company continues to experience significant growth year on year.
Commenting on the agreement, Alex Drijver, CEO of ChemAxon said, “The adoption of ChemAxon technology by Boehringer Ingelheim further underlines our position as the platform of choice for R&D organizations planning their next-generation systems.”

Streaming Protocol Makes Gene Data Sharing Future-ProofNews
The Large Scale Genomics Work Stream of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) has announced eight new implementations of its htsget protocol, a standard released in October 2017 for accessing large-scale genomic sequencing data online that does not depend on file transfers. The protocol and interoperability testing are reported in a paper released online this week in the journal Bioinformatics.
Algorithm Speeds Up Medical Image Analysis 1000 TimesNews
Medical image registration is a common technique that involves overlaying two images, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, to compare and analyze anatomical differences in great detail. Researchers have described a machine-learning algorithm that can register brain scans and other 3-D images more than 1,000 times more quickly using novel learning techniques.
