Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) and PerkinElmer Collaborate to Enhance the Efficiency of Researchers’ Workflows

December  9th,   2013

Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), the world’s authority for chemical information, and PerkinElmer, Inc., a global leader focused on improving the health and safety of people and the environment, today announced a collaboration to combine the power of two leading chemistry solutions: SciFinder® and ChemBioDraw®.

The ChemBioDraw platform is a digital drawing tool for chemists and biologists to create publication-ready, scientifically intelligent drawings for use in ELNs, databases and publications. SciFinder® is a research discovery application that provides integrated access to the world's most comprehensive and authoritative source of references, substances and reactions in chemistry and related sciences, which are collected, organized and indexed by CAS scientists.

New functionality is being developed to enable a ChemBioDraw user to directly initiate a search in SciFinder, providing access to comprehensive content available in the CAS databases. The integrated solution is planned to be available in early 2014.

“Combining the power of two leading chemistry platforms will enable researchers to more efficiently progress in their workflows,” said Clive Higgins, Vice President of Informatics Marketing, PerkinElmer. “The drawing capabilities in the ChemBioDraw platform are used across a large installed base, and adding the SciFinder search capability within the ChemBioDraw solution will extend the access to this authoritative chemical information from CAS.”

“CAS is pleased to collaborate with PerkinElmer to address the latest research challenges facing chemists, biologists and other scientists,” said Chris McCue, Vice President of Marketing at CAS. “We recognize that our users need integrated workflows that save them time and enhance discovery.  Seamless access between SciFinder and the ChemBioDraw platform builds on impressive histories of excellence, customer service and innovation from both organizations.”
