Contur Software has added chemistry functionality in iLabber, the company’s high-end ELN system. Using a software as a service (SaaS) model, Contur Software is making iLabber available to individual researchers and smaller R&D organizations that previously have not been able to utilize the advantages of high-end ELN systems due to investments in hardware, licenses and maintenance.
The added functionality gives premium users of iLabber access to chemistry drawing, chemical structure and reaction searching, stoichiometric calculations (reaction planning), and iLabber’s inbuilt reagent and reactant databases. All chemistry searching in iLabber is powered by ChemAxon’s JChem Cartridge. In addition, ChemAxon’s MarvinSketch is provided to premium users at no extra cost. ChemAxon is a leading provider of chemical software development platforms for the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.
Operation, maintenance, and data storage is securely managed by Contur and is available to both individual researchers and smaller research groups.
