Isentris 3.2

Symyx Technologies has released Isentris 3.2, its decision support system that enables scientists to explore, compare and report on information spanning multiple experiments captured in ELNs, LIMS, the Symyx Lab Execution and Analysis (LEA) software suite, and other information management systems.

Symyx Isentris is the cross-experiment data access, analysis and reporting tool for any LIMS system today-driving better informed decisions in scientific experiments and studies. This latest Isentris release supports the ongoing collaboration between Symyx and Thermo Fisher Scientific aimed at integrating Symyx Notebook and Symyx Isentris software with Thermo Scientific's LIMS including Watson LIMS used in DMPK/bioanalytical research.

Isentris 3.2 significantly extends the current analysis and reporting capabilities of Symyx LEA software. For many researchers, Microsoft Excel software is the analysis tool of choice. Isentris now enables LEA researchers to easily aggregate data from multiple information sources in a single view and to report on chemical structures, images, chromatograms, spectra and XY datasets, all within the familiar Excel environment.
