Accelrys adds scientific data analysis capabilities to Insight for Excel solution

Accelrys has added new scientific data analysis capabilities to its Accelrys Insight for Excel solution, including the ability to run database searches directly from spreadsheets.

The scientific lifecycle management software also allows users to import refined search results back into the spreadsheets.

Scientists involved in pharmacokinetics research can now calculate absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion and toxicity chemistry properties for chemical structures loaded into an Excel spreadsheet.

The new calculators for blood brain barrier penetration, human intestinal absorption, aqueous solubility, plasma protein binding and hepatotoxicity provide more information to make decisions about the appropriateness of compounds.

New chemical-name-from-structure and structure-from-chemical-name calculators also allow scientists to connect associated data items.

At the same time, the company released a new version of its web-based Accelrys Insight life science, discovery and innovation support environment.

"The latest releases of Accelrys Insight for Excel and Accelrys Insight are important steps in the evolution of an improved, end-to-end scientific decision support environment driving improved collaboration, innovation and productivity in life science discovery,” commented Leif E. Pedersen, senior vice president of marketing, product management and corporate development, Accelrys.
