PerkinElmer Launches New Version of ChemBioOffice Suite

SciFinder Search Provides Access to Comprehensive and Authoritative Chemistry Content


WHAT: PerkinElmer, Inc., a global leader focused on the health and safety of people and the environment, today announced the launch of a new version of its ChemBioOffice offering, an integrated suite of personal productivity tools that enables chemists and biologists to capture, store, retrieve and share data and information on compounds, reactions, materials and their properties.

HOW:  The ChemBioDraw Ultra program, a component of the ChemBioOffice suite, is a digital drawing tool that chemists and biologists use to create publication-ready, scientifically intelligent drawings for use in electronic lab notebooks (ELNs), databases and publications. A popular new capability in our ChemBioDraw Ultra software allows scientists to draw structures or reactions and directly launch a search via a SciFinder button without time-consuming cutting and pasting of structures between different chemical drawing tools.

SciFinder® is a research discovery application that provides access to the world’s most comprehensive and authoritative source of references, substances and reactions in chemistry and related sciences, which are collected, organized and indexed by Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) scientists.

“We are pleased to roll out our new version of the ChemBioOffice suite, providing scientists in chemistry and biology with enhanced capabilities for searching and productivity,” said Karen Madden, President, Informatics, PerkinElmer. “Our customers have found our direct access to the SciFinder search capability to be an invaluable tool for quickly locating relevant chemical information from CAS.”

MORE: Subscribers to the ChemBioOffice Ultra software will be entitled to deploy a special version of the ChemDraw for iPad mobile application, CDSLTM, throughout their organizations at no extra charge. This application provides convenient mobile access to the ChemDraw software application functionality with the ability to move and share files between the desktop and mobile versions.

The ChemBioOffice software suite (ChemBioDraw Ultra, ChemBio3D, ChemBioFinder, ChemBioFinde for Microsoft Office, ChemDraw for Microsoft Excel and ChemScript offerings) has been qualified for use with the Microsoft Windows 8.1 (32 and 64 bit) operating system and Microsoft Office 2013 (32 bit) suite. ChemBioDraw software has been qualified for use with the Mac OS 10.9 operating system (Mavericks)
