At IDBS, we set out to design our next-generation, cloud-ready versions of the ActivityBase screening platform and E-WorkBook chemistry ELN by re-examining all aspects of our existing platform. Although IDBS have long maintained our own proprietary chemistry technology, we recognized the need for a radical change. Build, Buy or Partner? Our analysis was clear: for our latest products to quickly deliver excellence across today’s competitive markets in research chemistry across discovery, process and industrial markets, a partnership with ChemAxon was the right business choice. This presentation will provide an overview of current and future applications of ChemAxon technology for chemical drawing & representation for our next-generation chemistry ELN and screening product portfolio.
