Effective data management driving improved processes
Global petrochemical providers face many current challenges associated with their operations, including meeting growing demand, managing costs, adhering to environmental/health/safety regulations, achieving productivity and technology improvements, linking global research and technology operations, collaborating with partner organizations, and leveraging operational synergies from merger and acquisition activity. Many of these challenges are being met by improving R&D productivity as well as production efficiency.
To accomplish these goals, scientists working to research, produce, and refine existing and new molecules require a sharable and searchable repository for entering reaction data, registering new chemicals or assays, and managing inventory from bench top research to large scale production processes. The ArxLab® Notebook platform provides an intuitive and scalable electronic laboratory notebook for conducting chemical research and sharing results across a globally distributed scientific workforce — from laboratory to pilot plant to refinery.
The ArxLab Platform is cloud-based, allowing for scientists around the globe to share their scientific and technical data securely and in real time. External partners at collaborating companies or CROs can be added or subtracted from the system with a click of a button. Chemistry, organic chemistry, and polymer chemistry structures are recognized for synthesis, registration, inventory, tracking, and IP searchability through ChemDraw®, Accelrys Draw®, JChem®, or Marvin®. ArxLab’s easy to use interface works the way scientists work; it reduces the time consuming manual processes and streamlines workflow and information exchange. Duplicate recognition in the system eliminates costly repetition of chemistry. Experiments within ArxLab allow scientists to manage, search, and share information globally, and decision support tools allow for advanced sorting and analysis of all research data.
Speed scientific innovation and productivity in your organization and allow for faster product development timelines.
Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN)
The ArxLab ® Notebook product is a cloud-based Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) and Workflow solution built to serve as an authoritative repository for Chemistry and Biology data, optimized for the collaborative research models ubiquitous in today’s commercial and academic research environments. It is highly effective at allowing organizations to collaborate and securely share research information with outside industrial partners, academic collaborators, and CROs. The system can deploy in one business day, includes experiment signing/witnessing capability and audit trails, is 21 CFR Part 11 compliant, and offers robust functionality to support chemistry and biology workflows.
Registration for Chemistry and Biology
The ArxLab® ChemReg and BioReg modules are a cloud-based solution built to serve as an authoritative repository for unique chemical and biological entities. The system handles cases of uniqueness (identity) criteria, mixtures, and cross-referencing, all within a single system that offers unified search across all entities, including chemically intelligent searching when a structure is present. PerkinElmer ChemDraw® is integrated for chemical drawing, and ChemAxon chemical intelligence functionality enables chemical search, property calculations, and full support for salts, mixtures, formulations, tautomers, and all types of isomers.
ArxLab® Assay is a cloud-based software tool set that can define, collect, manage, and store assay endpoint data – ideal for assay development functions as well as LTS and HTS screening programs. It provides study coordinators an integrated view of study activity and centrally manages data across multiple research groups and facilities. Users can specify required and optional parameters, data types, allowed ranges, and more. ArxLab Assay can perform automated calculation of raw data values, generate curves and heat maps, and allow for point knockouts for curves.
ArxLab® Inventory is a cloud-based inventory application providing a tool set to natively define and manage inventory items such as proprietary compounds, commercial reagents, samples, consumables, equipment, and other inventory items. Common operations include tracking of receiving, container history, usage levels by user, container location, material check-in/check-out, plate management, and audit trail. User-defined location hierarchy provides for exact locations of stored materials within a building, laboratory, bench-top, freezer, etc. Users can configure container type and storage locations and search by any field, or by chemical structure.
ArxLab® Search is a decision support tool enabling querying, visualizing, and reporting of data from the ArxLab® Notebook, Registration, Assay, and Inventory modules. It allows users to perform real-time searching and sorting of compound, material, assay, and inventory data, and to customize the layout of these results. Users can save save search and filter parameters, perform basic mathematical calculations, visualize chemical structures, create customizable graphs, generate 2D plotting, perform structure-activity relationship analyses, export tables to Microsoft Excel, and more. ArxLab Search can also integrate with external data repositories, offering data visualization functionality for any client information.
Project and work request management: ArxLab Workflow is a comprehensive project and work request management system, allowing managers to make work requests and track the progress of these requests, as well as of other projects and activities. It allows users to create new work requests and to assign them to users and/or groups. Workflow allows for designation of which users or groups are allowed to: create new requests, view requests, edit requests, delete requests, and be assigned requests. Managers can submit multiple items or requirements for one request/workflow via manual entry or bulk file import.
