Accelrys, Inc., a leading scientific enterprise R&D software and services company, announced the release of the 6.6 version of Symyx Notebook by Accelrys. Building on last year’s merger of Accelrys, Inc. and Symyx Technologies, Inc., as well as the combined company’s recently announced corporate strategy and underpinning Enterprise R&D Architecture, the latest release of the multi-disciplinary electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) offers out-of-the box integration with the Accelrys Pipeline Pilot Enterprise R&D Platform. Seamless access to powerful Pipeline Pilot data analytics and reporting from within the ELN accelerates experiment design, execution, analysis and reporting in a collaborative project team environment.
The 6.6 notebook release also offers new capabilities for rapidly and efficiently designing and documenting chemical and biological formulations. When combined with the notebook’s existing process and analytical capabilities, the new formulations capabilities accelerate product development for scale-up production in the biopharmaceuticals, fine chemicals, agrochemicals and consumer packaged goods industries.
In addition, the release provides a new, built-in data source connection making it easier for scientists to connect Accelrys ELN experiment repositories with Accelrys Isentris decision support software. Through Isentris, scientists can combine results from notebook experiments with other sources of information, gaining access to information that leads to fewer repeated experiments, less re-invention, improved insight into experiment design, and better decisions.
Enabling the scientific enterprise, driving scientific productivity
“Symyx Notebook by Accelrys is a unique enterprise ELN that offers robust capabilities across multiple scientific domains,” said Dr. Frank Brown, senior vice president and chief science officer at Accelrys. “Integrating the ELN with Pipeline Pilot extends the notebook with over 3,500 validated scientific components, accelerating scientific workflows, data retrieval and manipulation, computational filtering, visualization, reporting and other critical tasks. This is a great example of how Accelrys’ new, unified Enterprise R&D Architecture is bringing remarkable value to our customers and the market as a whole.”
Pipeline Pilot offers a rich library of chemistry and biology components for delivering design of experiments, statistics, image analytics, analytical data processing, next generation sequencing, modeling and simulation, data integration/reporting/visualization and other key capabilities. The flexible Pipeline Pilot development environment and extensive component collections enable organizations to deploy productivity-enhancing capabilities quickly and cost-effectively to a broad range of scientists using the ELN.
