PerkinElmer Offers White Paper on Mobile Technology for the Scientific Workflow


PerkinElmer, Inc., a global leader focused on improving the health and safety of people and the environment, offers a complimentary white paper on the advantages of using mobile technology in the scientific workflow.  The paper, “Liberating Today’s Scientists with App-Enabled Mobile Devices,” argues that apps in science can increase productivity in and out of the lab and foster the collaboration that sparks innovation by providing rapid anywhere, anytime access to data and enabling remote generation of data and experiment control.

Having already revolutionized consumer experiences and infiltrated the business world, mobile technology is making inroads into the lab. Scientific apps are gradually appearing on smartphones and tablets. Leading companies that embrace mobility and find ways to encourage its use in the lab will help scientists improve their productivity and accelerate discoveries.

PerkinElmer, envisioning an environment where scientists perform defined tasks and generate data using mobile devices, recently introduced its first apps for science. ChemDraw and Chem3D for iPad are new chemical structure drawing and visualization apps for the iPad that empower scientists and students to collaborate outside of the lab and classroom. Mobile extensions of its gold-standard ChemDraw software suite and Chem3D molecular viewing solution, PerkinElmer’s first apps are available from the Apple App Store.

The white paper covers the exponential rise in the use of apps for consumers and in business, how their introduction in the lab can benefit scientists, PerkinElmer’s strategy to develop its first apps, and details on how ChemDraw and Chem3D for iPad function.
