Accelrys has launched version 6.6 of its Symyx Notebook. This latest release of the multi-disciplinary electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) offers out-of-the box integration with the Accelrys Pipeline Pilot enterprise R&D platform. Access to Pipeline Pilot data analytics and reporting from within the ELN accelerates experiment design, execution, analysis and reporting in a collaborative project team environment. The 6.6 notebook also offers new capabilities for designing and documenting chemical and biological formulations and provides a new, built-in data source connection enabling users to connect Accelrys ELN experiment repositories with Accelrys Isentris decision support software. Through Isentris, scientists can combine results from notebook experiments with other sources of information, leading to fewer repeated experiments and less re-invention.
