Symyx Announces New Version of Symyx Software

Symyx Technologies has announced the release of a new version of its Symyx Software Lab Execution and Experiment Analysis applications. Symyx Software provides comprehensive R&D project execution and decision-support for chemical, energy, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.

The Symyx Software suite is comprised of Lab Execution, Lab Analysis and Electronic Lab Notebook applications.

* Lab Execution applications: control, monitor and manage data acquisition for laboratory instruments
* Experiment Analysis applications: real-time data warehousing so that members of a team or an entire organization can simplify reporting or search by document or chemical structure, utilizing multiple query and browsing tools
* Electronic Laboratory Notebook applications: simplify record-keeping and help researchers compose, load, calculate and share experimental information, with support for both regulated and non-regulated environments and both conventional and array based experimentation

All components of Symyx Lab Execution and Experiment Analysis applications have been enhanced with new features including:
- Library Studio the chemical and mixture grids capture more information from an external chemical inventory, and sources can be better mapped into libraries, particularly in the area of many-to-many maps. The developer kit now supports .NET 2003.
- Epoch /Impressionist now offers users enhanced productivity in protocol authoring, workspace definition, recovery from unforeseen problems, data viewing, and support for numerous new types of instrument devices.
- Spectra Studio a new user-specified reference mode was added for sorting spectra. In addition, there are performance enhancements to spectra preprocessing and sorting.
- Data Browser offers new types of reporting, a restructured user interface, and developer kit support for customized searches.
- Polyview features improvements to query and list management, including the ability to save queries, to determine what part of a query gave rise to a specific list, and to reuse parts of a query. Other improvements include enhanced data export and image handling.
- Application Server key changes include better sharing of experimental data collected at multiple sites through automated replication and enhanced security administration.
