CAS SciFinder Discovery Platform solutions

Increase efficiency across the full spectrum of R&D activities by subscribing to the CAS SciFinder Discovery Platform, which incorporates the following solutions:

CAS SciFinder®

Speed up your science with human-curated information

CAS SciFinder speeds the process of finding relevant, actionable insights. We’ve combed through the literature so you don’t have to, extracting and annotating the data, concepts, and molecules you care about so that you can innovate quickly and confidently.

CAS Formulus®

Develop safe and effective products

CAS Formulus is an integrated formulations database and workflow solution. With curated information from patents and journals spanning various industries, CAS Formulus helps formulation scientists evaluate ingredients, find suppliers, and explore regulatory requirements, all in one easy interface.

CAS Analytical Methods™

Speed up your science with human-curated information

CAS Analytical Methods provides a single source for searching and comparing the latest published scientific methods across multiple fields of study. Providing easy-to-read experimental details, CAS Analytical Methods helps get you back in the lab faster.

More than a search and retrieval tool

"SciFinder far exceeded my expectations of what I could achieve with a research and scientific information platform. Rather than being a simple search and retrieval tool, it became my ‘lab partner’ to help me address my hypothesis. In all my experience of working in drug discovery, I haven’t found any other product able to do this."
