Isentris Personal Edition

Designed for small to mid-size R&D organisations and for individuals, Symyx Isentris Personal Edition brings advanced scientific information management, exploration and sharing capabilities to scientists without requiring an enterprise deployment

As the successor to the ISIS desktop system (replacing ISIS/Base, ISIS for Excel, and ISIS/Draw), Isentris Personal Edition surpasses ISIS in meeting scientists' needs for storing, searching, viewing, and sharing personal experimental results while still providing the powerful functionality of an enterprise scientific informatics system.

Components include: Symyx Isentris, enabling users to browse, collate, report and share data in an efficient, timley manner; Isentris for Excel, allowing the generation of Excel reports; and Symyx Draw, enabling users to draw and edit complex molecules, chemical reactions, polymers, non-specific mixtures, formulations and biologics.

Advanced features enable scientists to enumerate virtual compound libraries, analyse the effects of substituents on biological activities, and search chemical spreadsheets using structure searching and filtering techniques.
