Adept Scientific are pleased to announce the latest release of CambridgeSoft’s premier software suite for chemists and biologists.
New ChemOffice 2005 offers an unbeatable array of fully integrated applications and functionality, and is truly the ultimate desktop software suite any life scientist could desire. ChemOffice 2005 allows chemists to efficiently keep track of their work, gain a deeper understanding of their results, correlate biological activity with chemical structures, and of course most importantly: get their work done more professionally and effectively than ever before.
Powerful tools within the ChemOffice Ultra 2005 Suite
The three core applications of the ChemOffice suite are ChemDraw for structural drawing, Chem3D for modelling and visualisation, and ChemFinder, a chemical relational database application with full integration for Microsoft Excel and Word. The ChemDraw and Chem3D applications have been significantly updated in the new version – so too ChemFinder which now includes BioViz, a new bio-visualisation tool to correlate chemical data with biological activity. The new ChemOffice also includes updates to its structure searchable ChemFinder databases, including The Merck Index 13.2 edition, the ChemACX Database, which now offers over 330 catalogues from leading suppliers, and the ChemMSDX Database, which contains over 20,000 material safety data sheets for commonly used laboratory chemicals.
In addition to these updates there are a number of other exciting new components to the suite which really make this 2005 version of ChemOffice by far the best release yet. E-Notebook Ultra, Inventory Ultra and BioAssay Ultra, included in ChemOffice Ultra 2005, are all designed to deliver much of the functionality of CambridgeSoft’s enterprise level applications of these products to individual chemists at their desktops, without the need for a widespread roll out.
It’s impossible to list all the numerous features and benefits of ChemOffice 2005, so instead here’s a list of the highlights of the latest version.
Important new or enhanced features include:
Inventory Ultra 9.0 – Using MSDE as the database, users are given the opportunity to organise, store, and search over their inventory from their desktop. Includes the Available Chemicals eXchange, ChemACX Database, providing a complete tool for research chemical sourcing and purchasing.
BioAssay Ultra 9.0 – Provides flexible storage, retrieval, modelling and analysis of biological data – fit for the needs of both high and low throughput screening biologists.
BioViz/Office 9.0 – The bio visualisation add-on to ChemFinder allows users to create graphical representations of ChemFinder databases in order to identify trends within the data at a glance and evaluate diversity among compounds in a library. Plot styles include scatter plots, line charts, and histograms, with list colouring, point filtering, and more.
BioDraw Ultra 9.0 – Makes drawing and annotating biological pathways straightforward and quick, adding a level of uniformity and detail which is unmatched.
Properties LiveLink – Chemical names, formulae, molecular weights, and other physical properties added to the ChemDraw document are “live”, and will now update automatically as modifications are made to structural diagrams.
ChemNMR Improvements – Proton NMR spectra have more accurate chemical shifts and splitting patterns, and the predicted spectra are displayed more clearly for both Proton and Carbon-13 NMR predictions.
Improved Struct=Name feature – ChemDraw 9.0 now allows users to produce names for many more types of compounds, including charged compounds and salts, highly symmetric structures, many types of inorganic and organometallic compounds, and more.
ChemDraw Livelink – Simultaneous 2D & 3D editing! Draw structures using a ChemDraw window embedded in the Chem3D application. This powerful feature adds a 2D view that is always in-sync with the 3D view.
Dihedral Driver – Chem3D 9.0 provides a new conformational analysis tool that allows for the generation of MM2 energy plots by rotating one or two dihedral angles in the model. New GUI features also make Chem3D easier to use than ever!
Model Explorer – Hierarchical tree-control for exploring the structure of large models. Import a PDB file and examine chains, groups, and ligands. This new feature gives fine-grained control.
Multiple Projects – E-Notebook combines all your notebooks into one. Organise project notebooks the way you work.
Document Pages – E-Notebook pages contain Excel spreadsheets, Word documents, ChemDraw drawings and spectral data.
Audit Trail – E-Notebook 9.0 allows for a complete audit trial, retaining a complete copy of the experiment for each save, including username and timestamp. Other new E-Notebook features include the time saving AutoText feature, which allows users to add prewritten protocols to their experiment text.
Improved Excel integration – Now handling chemical structures in Microsoft Excel is even easier. Structure drawings are integrated with their spreadsheet cells, so they behave just like other data.
ChemOffice Ultra 2005 offers an impressive, comprehensive suite of programs designed to allow scientists to easily produce, store and share chemical and biological information, making this software package the ideal, integrated solution for escalating insight and efficiency in all scientific settings.
