Accelrys, a scientific enterprise R&D software and services company, has unveiled a new packaged professional services solution built on the Enterprise Lab Management (ELM) suite of the Accelrys Enterprise R&D Architecture.
Known as Accelrys Experiment Knowledge Base (News - Alert) (EKB), the new solution has been designed to speed innovation in materials science by helping scientists plan, execute, analyze, report, mine and manage experiments.
All this is achieved through a single system that is complementary to existing laboratory instrumentation and data management methods.
Accelrys claims that its solution also has the ability to improve laboratory efficiency and productivity. Moreover, it supports sustainability strategies for scientific enterprises in the chemicals, manufacturing and materials industries.
The company further notes that its EKB solution can address specific challenges faced by Accelrys’ customers and can optimize scientific workflows of materials-focused labs.
“When scientists cannot answer basic questions about what has already been done in the lab, they can end up repeating up to 40 percent of their experiments — a colossal waste of effort, time and money,” said Mollie Hunter, vice president of worldwide professional services at Accelrys. “To reverse this trend, Accelrys’ EKB turns siloed data into actionable scientific knowledge, accelerating the development of innovative performance materials that are environmentally and economically sustainable.”
The solution is built on the recently released Enterprise Lab Management suite, which includes a core set of lab-enabling services and add-on components within the Accelrys Enterprise R&D architecture.
This Enterprise Lab Management suite, says Accelrys, provides a flexible framework that can be configured and deployed according to specific customer needs.
