Accelrys’ Partnership with ACD Labs Drives Innovation
Accelrys, Inc., a San Diego, CA-based enterprise R&D software and services company, has announced a continuing partnership with Toronto-based chemistry software company ACD/Labs (Advanced Chemistry Development, Inc.) . The partnership enables pharmaceutical, chemical and biochemical companies around the world to work efficiently and productively by deploying ACD/Labs’ analytical component collection on the Accelrys Pipeline Pilot enterprise R&D platform.
“The partnership between Accelrys and ACD/Labs is a high-value win for our mutual customers,” said Dr. Trevor Heritage, executive vice president of software products at Accelrys. “Software compatibility between ACD/Labs’ tools and our enterprise R&D platform enables the broad and rapid adoption, deployment and management of cutting-edge technology and science across our shared customer community.”
As an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) in the Accelrys Partner Program since 2005, ACD/Labs most recently made their analytical component collection available in the Pipeline Pilot environment. This software integration accelerates the dissemination of informatics solutions in spectroscopic data processing and prediction, property prediction, analytical knowledge management and interactive reporting of scientific data. Integration with the platform’s powerful scientific information processing, automation, analysis and integration functionality helps organizations using ACD/Name, ACD/PhysChem Suite, ACD/ADME Suite, ACD/Tox Suite and ACD/Labs’ analytical tools move products from lab to market quickly and efficiently.
ACD/Labs’ analytical component collection enables import, processing, handling and interpretation of analytical data. It supports scientists in building an analytical knowledge-base of spectra, chromatograms and metadata from a variety of analytical techniques including NMR, LC/MS, UV-Vis, IR, Raman, chromatography, x-ray powder diffraction and other analytical techniques. ACD/Labs’ collaborates with most major instrument vendors, resulting in support of more than 100 file formats.
“By responding to the requests of our joint customer base and working together to add ACD/Labs analytical processing and knowledge management functionality to the Accelrys Pipeline Pilot enterprise R&D platform, ACD/Labs and Accelrys have created a powerful channel for streamlining research productivity,” said Hans de Bie, director of informatics at ACD/Labs.
