PerkinElmer has integrated its electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) with Elsevier’s Reaxys, a web-based workflow solution designed for chemistry researchers in drug discovery, chemicals and academic research.
PerkinElmer Informatics general manager Michael Stapleton said as chemists are turning to electronic laboratory notebooks to plan, execute and record their experiments, they also need ready access to complementary tools and data sources directly within the ELN interface.
“The interoperability of our ELN and Elsevier’s Reaxys provides researchers with access to extensive information on chemical compounds and related physical and pharmacological properties so that they can make better decisions,” Stapleton added.
”This integration also allows researchers to save valuable time by providing the ability to rapidly search and import external data while eliminating transcription errors.”
The new integrated solution enables access to reaction and substance data directly from Reaxys into the ELN for enhanced productivity and streamlined workflows.
The chemical searches in Reaxys can be initiated in an experimental section in the ELN based on existing or newly drawn compounds or reactions and results are made immediately available.
PerkinElmer provides discovery, collaboration and knowledge enterprise solutions, desktop software, scientific databases and consulting services to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and chemical industries.
