Accelrys® ELN Delivers Seamless Integration with the Reaxys® Workflow Solution
News Mar 03, 2013
Accelrys, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACCL), a leading provider of scientific innovation lifecycle management software, has announced new chemistry information management possibilities for research scientists arising from Accelrys' cooperation with Elsevier. Scientists now can directly access and leverage the trusted Reaxys chemistry workflow solution from the Accelrys Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN). This interoperability makes search and retrieval of crucial chemical reactions, substances and related property data faster, more efficient and directly consumable by the multidisciplinary Accelrys Electronic Lab Notebook. The ability to leverage Reaxys content via the Accelrys Electronic Lab Notebook enhances synthesis planning and documentation in discovery, accelerates process development and speeds scientific innovation and productivity.
Dr. Matt Hahn, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Accelrys, highlighted the benefits of this innovation, saying, "The Reaxys integration provides rapid, in situ access to an extensive and valued source of chemical information, accelerating cost-effective research and improving outcomes in upstream R&D and downstream process development. Specifically, the ability to execute full reaction searches through the Reaxys interface beyond just searching for molecules will accelerate innovation."
Starting from the Accelrys ELN, chemists, biologists and materials scientists in industry, government and academia now can search a wealth of experimentally validated chemical reactions while also leveraging a depth of substance data and related properties in organic, organometallic, inorganic and physical chemistry. The data received from the Reaxys output is easily manageable through end-user scripting, making the output valuable for many different scientific operations.
Meeuwis van Arkel, vice president of product development at Elsevier, explained how the delivery of chemistry information in context would support efficient research, saying, "Easy retrieval of relevant and actionable results at the right time in the right context means scientists can move more quickly through their workflow steps to deliver superior, rapid and more cost-effective outcomes."
