PerkinElmer Integrates Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) with Elsevier’s Reaxys® Chemistry Workflow Solution
Product News Aug 17, 2012
PerkinElmer, Inc., a global leader focused on improving the health and safety of people and the environment, announced that their 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 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 reaction(s) are located and selected in Reaxys, they can be exported directly to the ELN and inserted into a ready to be carried out experiment, complete with reaction scheme, stoichimetry table and preparation text.
Integrating ELN with Reaxys is available at no extra charge to customers who already have both systems.
