Materials Studio Release 6.1

Accelrys has announced release 6.1 of its Materials Studio modelling and simulation environment, providing integration with the Accelrys Pipeline Pilot scientific authoring application, the scientifically-aware Accelrys Enterprise Platform and Accelrys Materials Studio Collection.

This newly-integrated offering is aimed at enabling computational scientists to innovate and collaborate across the global enterprise for the first time, speeding time to market and improving competitiveness with a scientific innovation lifecycle management approach extending across the discovery-to-lab-to-plant continuum. 

Accelrys Materials Studio release 6.1 enables experts to encapsulate and automate computational best practices in reusable protocols using Accelrys Pipeline Pilot. Integration with the Accelrys Enterprise Platform then provides the ability to deploy computational science to the global enterprise by exposing protocols in web browsers and other applications such as Accelrys Electronic Laboratory Notebooks and Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. 

By enabling scientists to leverage computational science rather than test and experimentation alone, Accelrys Materials Studio aims to accelerate the development of new, better-performing, more sustainable and cost-effective materials.
