Branford, CT and Santa Fe, NM – April, 2013 – Core Informatics, a provider of data management solutions to the life sciences, molecular diagnostics and energy industries, and OpenEye Scientific Software, a developer of innovative molecular modeling and cheminformatics solutions for molecular discovery, have announced a new partnership and the integration of OpenEye cheminformatics software into Core Informatics’ web-based Laboratory Information Management System (Core LIMS) and Electronic Lab Notebook (Core ELN).
The Core LIMS and Core ELN offer a wide array of features through a flexible component-based architecture that provides organizations with individually tailored data management solutions. Core Informatics’ introduction of an OpenEye powered Chemical Registration Application enables user access to the robust chemistry handling processes available in OpenEye’s cheminformatics suite within the Core LIMS. OpenEye provides capabilities, such as compound registration, unique compound identification, search and retrieval of exact and similar molecules, enhanced structure visualization and reaction handling. Examples include use of canonical isomeric SMILES to uniquely identify compounds, multiple language translation, and a curated set of useful calculated properties.
“Our partnership with OpenEye exemplifies Core Informatics’ desire to provide our client base access to an expanding array of cheminformatics tools,” said Anthony Uzzo, President of Core Informatics. “We are additionally enthusiastic to draw upon OpenEye’s unparalleled expertise in 3D molecular shape and electrostatics as future extensions to the Core LIMS.”
Anthony Nicholls, CEO and Founder of OpenEye, remarked “We are thrilled that users of the Core platform will have access to all the great cheminformatics developed at OpenEye. It has always been our ‘core’ mission to supply the chemistry community with the very best and most innovative software possible, and this partnership with Core is a big step towards that goal.”
