Scilligence Partners with CAS to Optimize R&D Informatics Workflows with Scientist-Curated Data

Columbus, Ohio and Boston, Massachusetts; November 17, 2020 – Scilligence, a provider of web-based informatics solutions for R&D, has partnered with CAS, a division of the American Chemical Society, to enable direct access to CAS scientific content through the Scilligence informatics platform. A previous partnership between Scilligence and CAS enabled users to initiate SciFindern searches directly from Scilligence ELN (Electronic Laboratory Notebook). This new partnership builds on the previous collaboration by streamlining additional workflow scenarios. Users can now access the human-curated CAS REGISTRY® directly from Scilligence ELN and Scilligence Inventory. 

“We are excited about our second partnership with CAS. Integration of Scilligence informatics solutions with CAS content will help scientists to query and access CAS’s scientific content with more efficiency. This is an outstanding example of practicing FAIR data principles and removing data silos,” said Jinbo Lee, Chief Scientific Officer and co-founder of Scilligence.

Scilligence ELN with CAS and Scilligence Inventory with CAS are currently available with additional integrations coming in 2021 across the portfolio of products, including RegMol with CAS and TouchMol4Office with CAS. Through this integration, Scilligence users will have the ability to search for substances from CAS REGISTRY in the research workflow. CAS provides the largest and most up-to-date collection of scientific information including CAS REGISTRY, the gold standard for disclosed chemical information in the world. 

“Embedding our scientist-curated data directly within Scilligence solutions will provide researchers with access to authoritative chemical names and structure data, giving them access to critical resources within their R&D workflows. This partnership is an important step to increase productivity, knowledge sharing and innovation in research,” said Andrea Jacobs, Senior Product Manager for Partnerships, CAS.
