PerkinElmer Informatics is pleased to announce the release of the newly enhanced ChemDraw/ChemOffice 18 product offering, providing chemists and biologists with a unique and powerful collection of scientifically intelligent personal productivity tools. ChemDraw/ChemOffice 18 contains all the same rich and chemically aware features and functionality that ChemDraw is known for as well as the following new capabilities:
Integration with Elsevier® Reaxys® – a global leader in chemical information search. The partnership offers two benefits: the first, the availability of ChemDraw JS as a drawing editor on the Reaxys website (effective June 2018), and the second, a new search integration from ChemDraw into Reaxys, similar to the “Search into SciFinder” capability (originally introduced back in ChemDraw version 14).
On the theme of integrations, ChemDraw and ChemOffice 18.0 go beyond chemical drawing and bring new, time-saving capabilities to users in the form of the ChemACX Explorer Add-in, delivered through the flexible architecture of ChemOffice. Originally developed on Signals Notebook, ChemACX Explorer offers instant search and retrieve vendor, property and safety information from the comfort of ChemDraw.
Hierarchical Editing Language for Macromolecules (HELM) is becoming an industry standard for the representation of complex biopolymers (peptides, nucleic acids, antibody-drug conjugates etc.). After implementing a new HELM toolbar in ChemDraw 17.0, a HELM library management capability is now available to browse, curate, copy and access common, corporate libraries.
