Paradigm Scientific Search Software from Waters Improves Access to Enterprise-Wide Scientific Information
Product News Apr 13, 2013
Waters Corporation has announced it is expanding its Laboratory Informatics offerings, with the addition of ParadigmTM Scientific Search Software, a powerful information access platform.
Paradigm Scientific Search provides scientists, engineers, and managers in science- based organizations with easy and secure access to information across enterprise- wide data repositories. Easy access to critical information helps drive product innovation, development, and manufacturing, resulting in improved time to market.
“Paradigm Scientific Search enables content consumers to find scientifically relevant information across data silos, whether structured or unstructured, and search by science objects,” says Dr. Rohit Khanna, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, Waters Division. “It allows science-based organizations to fully leverage their science content to make better evidence-based decisions.”
Science Objects for R&D
Paradigm Scientific Search is unrivalled in its ability to mine data repositories for science objects such as chemical structures, reactions, spectra, chromatograms, images, biological sequences and biological structures. Once extracted from documents through a series of automated analytic processes, science objects are indexed for instant recall. As a result, fast and easy scientific searches are no longer restricted to text queries. Paradigm Scientific Search enables scientists to simply paste science objects into a search box to retrieve near-instant results.
Comprehensive and Secure Information Access
Within most science-driven enterprises, valuable scientific content is stored in local information silos accessible with access restricted via narrowly focused Informatics tools. Paradigm Scientific Search offers an alternative to this siloed approach with cross-repository access, combining all information into a single index that can be searched from a single graphical user interface.
Paradigm Scientific Search offers near-real-time updating and secure access to information residing in commonly used science-based organization sources including Waters Empower® 3 Chromatography Software and NuGenesis® 8 Featuring Laboratory Execution (LE) Technologies data management and workflow solution. Incremental indexing ensures that content changes or additions are immediately reflected in search results. Advanced security trimming ensures that users only see the results they are allowed to see.
