PerkinElmer Launches Innovative Informatics Solutions at the American Chemical Society Spring 2012 National Meeting & Exposition

SAN DIEGO, CA. – March 23, 2012 – At the American Chemical Society (ACS)Spring 2012 National Meeting & Exposition (Booth #218), PerkinElmer, Inc., a global leader focused on improving the health and safety of people and the environment, will be showcasing new chemistry-focused informatics solutions and technologies, including the Reaction Genius® software platform for better chemistry knowledge sharing and workflow productivity.

The Reaction Genius application  enables rapid chemical reaction search and chemistry analytics for Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) platforms, providing scientists with an operational understanding of the chemistry being performed throughout their research organization – for better operational impact and business relevance.

The software is an easy-to-use, web-based solution that provides critical research answers to chemists by offering immediate and enterprise-wide visibility to internal chemical information stored on a variety of global platforms, including ELNs. Researchers can find data relevant to their experimentation by substructure, reaction, similarity and other metadata associated with their projects.  The software can search and retrieve hundreds of thousands of chemical reactions in seconds, and display them via a customized dashboard.

“We are very pleased to launch the Reaction Genius offering at ACS, as part of our mission to enable the most productive informatics-based chemistry research environments possible for our customers,” said Michael Stapleton, general manager, Informatics, PerkinElmer.

He added, "The software helps provide a complete picture of an organization’s chemistry-based research assets, and answers key questions such as:  who within the organization is making what chemical structure; how many novel compounds are produced daily; and, how productive are each of our sites, departments or projects?  The Reaction Genius tool provides the data and analytics for finding those answers necessary to business success.”
