Learn how the latest incarnations of PerkinElmer’s powerhouse laboratory informatics tools will boost your productivity and enhance decision making.

Just before this issue of TCM went to press, PerkinElmer announced a brand-new version of their market-leading chemical information software, ChemBioOffice Ultra 13 – and it’s a corker! It combines updated versions of such key chemistry and biology tools as ChemBioDraw, with its scientifically intelligent capabilities for drawing chemical structures and biological pathways, and ChemBio3D for molecular modelling and exploration, with a wealth of new and improved functionality.

ChemBioDraw 13 (also available separately) lets you create publication-ready drawings of chemical structures, peptide and nucleotide sequences, cells and pathways. New to version 13 are a biopolymer toolbar including D- and L-amino acids, beta amino acids, DNA, RNA, protecting groups and linkers; calculators for pKa, LogD and LogS giving you the ability to explore bioavailability properties; and a new tool for drawing gel electrophoresis plates. This new version also gives you the ability to paste peptide, DNA and RNA sequences from external sources and have them interpreted chemically with sequence wrapping and shaping.

Meanwhile ChemBio3D 13 boasts new tools that let you set up AutoDock runs for flexible ligand docking and fit, and CONFLEX® runs for conformational analysis and detection of minimum energy conformers.

ChemBioOffice Ultra 13 also incorporates a powerful database management and search utility, an electronic lab notebook and an inventory management application. There are tools for you to accurately predict proton and 13C NMR spectra, calculate physical properties and stoichiometry data, add chemically intelligent capabilities to Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheets, and much more. New collaborative features include cloud storage to save, share and import structures, reactions and drawings.

With this launch, PerkinElmer has rationalised its product range by incorporating a number of products, previously available separately, into ChemBioOffice 13. These include ChemOffice, BioOffice, ChemDraw, BioDraw, ChemDraw/Excel Pro, ChemNMR,
E-Notebook and Inventory, as well as online database subscriptions – although for those customers who don’t have need for biology tools, there are standalone version 13 editions of ChemOffice and ChemDraw.

Delivering all the tools you need to keep track of your work, visualise and gain a deeper understanding of your results and correlate biological activity with chemical structures, new ChemBioOffice Ultra 13 takes laboratory informatics to a whole new level of usefulness.

What do our Customers say about us?

I have now followed your (very clear!) instructions and am happy to report that my problem is solved. Magic! You have made me a much, much happier person!

CS, Reading, UK

I have to thank you again for your help. The support level you have given gives me good confidence in using the product, knowing that there are solutions to problems that are not necessarily easy (or economic) for you to implement, but give the customer a working solution.

CW, Cheltenham, UK

It was about as perfect as a teaching seminar could be. Moved at the correct pace and encompasses a good amount of information

At 13-years old, my daughter’s research manuscript has been accepted for publication in a top tier peer-reviewed Environmental Science journal and OriginPro 8.6 will allow her to export the graphs in a wide variety of formats which can meet any publisher’s requirements. Kudos to OriginLab for designing innovative and intuitive software that can span the needs of both a burgeoning young scientist like my daughter to a PhD expert in their field. It is hard to imagine that other products offer this extraordinary level of user versatility.
