PerkinElmer releases newest version of flagship informatics product: ChemBioOffice® Ultra 13.0 Suite

PerkinElmer Inc (Waltham, Mass), a global leader focused on improving the health and safety of people and the environment, has introduced the newest version of ChemBioOffice® Informatics Suite. Available from Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts), ChemBioOffice version 13.0 increases the productivity of scientists with improvements to the industry leading ChemBioDraw® and ChemBio3D® modules while providing secure cloud storage for improved data sharing.

The ChemBioOffice suite helps chemists and biologists to efficiently track their work giving scientists more time to focus on their research, visualise and gain a deeper understanding of their results and correlate biological activity and other properties with chemical structures. The new informatics product provides individual scientists within an organisation the tools they need to create publication-ready drawings of compounds, reactions, materials and their properties for use in electronic laboratory notebooks (ELNs) and databases as well as for querying chemical databases.

“A pressing challenge for our customers is to continually introduce new product candidates into the research and development pipeline in order to maintain competitiveness and ensure ongoing revenues,” said Michael Stapleton, General Manager of PerkinElmer Informatics. “We are very excited to provide chemists and biologists with the new ChemBioOffice Suite, a premium tool developed to help scientists turn data into actionable information and make decisions with greater confidence, thereby accelerating their discovery process.”

The improved biopolymer toolbar of the ChemBioDraw program, the world’s leading scientific drawing program, enables fast and easy modifications to larger therapeutic agents and molecular structures such as amino acids, peptides, RNA, DNA and nucleotides. In addition, users can now copy and paste any sequence into the program to manipulate part of, or the entire section of, a sequence in the search for modifications to gain a deeper understanding of their results and correlate biological activity with chemical structures.

To assess the shape and properties of small molecules and biochemical compounds, the ChemBio3D program enables synthetic chemists and biologists to generate 3D models. The ChemBio3D program can evaluate data input and provide valuable information such as the degree of fit of compounds into a receptor. In addition, the program acts as a hub for other 3D modelling programs, providing easy and consistent access to other computational and molecular modelling programs.

The addition of a sharable cloud location to ChemBioOffice makes it easier for scientists to collaborate by securely sharing and importing ChemBioDraw and ChemBio3D structures, reactions and drawings with other scientists around the world.

ChemBioOffice 13.0 is available now from Adept Scientific.

Thermo Fisher Scientific releases GRAMS Suite – version 9.1

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc (Philadelphia, USA) has announced the latest release in its GRAMS Suite of spectroscopy software: an industry standard solution for visualising, processing, reporting and managing spectroscopy data. Available from Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts), Thermo Scientific GRAMS 9.1 now delivers enhanced capabilities to meet the needs of scientists engaged in a variety of spectroscopic experiments and disciplines.

The GRAMS Suite is comprised of a collection of complementary and fully integrated applications and modules centred on the core GRAMS/AI spectroscopy data processing and reporting software. Its advanced processing routines, data comparison and visualisation features, as well as its ability to handle data from any analytical instrument, have set the industry standard for spectroscopy software. New functionality available with GRAMS 9.1 offers intuitive and simplified workflows to enable scientists to easily and rapidly access their data and make informed decisions about the results generated.

  • GRAMS 9.1 delivers a comprehensive suite of enhancements for managing spectroscopy data.
  • GRAMS IQ is the next-generation solution for visual chemometric modelling. GRAMS IQ provides a simplified visual workflow and model deployment capabilities for quantitative and qualitative analyses.
  • GRAMS Convert allows scientists to automatically find and transform all of the spectra on a hard drive to a standard format.
  • Smart Convert/Import is an interactive import wizard that enables scientists to manage data from more than 180 types of IR, UV-Vis, NMR and LC/GC-MS instruments.
  • GRAMS’ 9.1 enhanced functionality improves access to data, facilitates collaboration and reduces costs by eliminating the need for multiple vendor software packages and the associated training.
  • GRAMS 9.1 is supported on Microsoft Windows 7, 32 and 64 bit Operating Systems and adds compatibility with more than 30 new instrument data formats.

Due to its broad compatibility with many different instrument data types, GRAMS spectroscopy software is valuable to researchers across the broadest range of industries and academia to help solve some of the most difficult data analysis challenges.

“We’re very proud of our long history serving the scientific community with GRAMS spectroscopy software which, for over 20 years, has been the premier solution for visualising, processing and managing spectroscopy data,” said Dave Champagne, vice president and general manager for Thermo Fisher’s Informatics business. “Because GRAMS is compatible with so many different instrument data types, researchers across the broadest range of industries have relied on the GRAMS Suite to solve some of their most difficult data analysis problems and have realised increased productivity, enhanced data access and more opportunities for collaboration.”
