PerkinElmer to Showcase Informatics Technologies and Deliver Presentations at ACS Fall 2015 Conference


PerkinElmer, Inc. a global leader focused on improving the health and safety of people and the environment, today announced that it will display several of its informatics offerings and its experts will present on a variety of key industry topics at the 250th American Chemical Society (ACS) Fall National Meeting & Exposition.

“ACS Fall provides the opportunity to highlight our industry leading informatics technologies and share our extensive knowledge with a wide range of chemistry professionals and academics,” said Karen Madden, President, Informatics, PerkinElmer. “This year’s event theme ‘Innovation from Discovery to Application’ speaks directly to the solutions and expertise we offer our customers.”

ACS Fall 2015 attracts between 11,000 and 13,000 chemists, chemical engineers, academicians, graduate and undergraduate students, and other related professionals. Scientists present new advancements in multidisciplinary research and hear the latest developments in their areas of professional interest.


August 16-20, 2015


Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (Booth #211)


PerkinElmer will feature and provide demos of the following informatics products at its booth 211:

ChemDraw® software: for more than 30 years, this chemical structure drawing software has been the drawing tool of choice for chemists to create publication-ready, scientifically intelligent drawings for use in electronic laboratory notebooks, databases and publications, as well as for querying chemical databases. Learn more about the newly released version 15 of PerkinElmer’s ChemDraw software.

  • • A direct link to the SciFinder® application is found in the ChemDraw software, allowing scientists to quickly and easily search for compounds without cutting and pasting. The SciFinder® application is a product of Chemical Abstracts Services. (CAS).
  • ChemDraw® for iPad®: This iTunes® app for iPad® devices allows everyone to access ChemDraw software. Scientists can draw chemical structures quickly on their iPad® device and share them with colleagues. Professors are using ChemDraw software on iPad® devices to teach chemistry in the classroom and revolutionize the way that students learn through the “Flick-to-Share®” technology.

Elements® Platform: a cloud-based scientific collaboration platform for students and researchers. The Elements electronic laboratory notebook is a first-of-its-kind solution that revolutionizes how academic scientists collect and share data and information in the lab and classroom. ChemDraw software is embedded in the Elements platform for drawing chemical structures and calculating stoichiometry.

E-Notebook™ Software: an electronic lab notebook for chemists and biologists in pharmaceutical, biotech, chemical, food/flavor/fragrance, petrochemical, industrial, academic and government institutions. E-Notebook software is designed to replace traditional paper notebooks, helping scientists save time on data entry and repetitive calculations. It also integrates with documents, spreadsheets, presentations and image files and enables researchers to share results with their colleagues. E-Notebook software can integrate with chemical registrations, inventories, LIMS, screening modules, formulations modules, and much more. It easily connects to the TIBCO Spotfire® platform through PerkinElmer’s Datalytix™ connector.

TIBCO Spotfire® Platform: a collaborative interface assimilating data types such as chemical structures, text, numbers, images, chemical properties and biological assays from multiple sources. It helps scientists perform complex analyses and develop easy-to-use interactive visual dashboards. Researchers can create enhanced data visualizations quickly and efficiently from the data of one or multiple instruments.

Lead Discovery™ application, powered by TIBCO Spotfire®: an application that helps chemists visualize and explore complex data and structure-activity relationships through chemical structure viewing and filtering, R-group decomposition, clustering by chemical structure, chemical property calculations, and substructure searching.


PerkinElmer’s team of experts will also deliver the following presentations at the event:

  • Sunday, August 16, 1:55-2:20p.m. , Boston Convention Center Room 104B: “Reaction Discovery & Optimization Tools for Visualizing Chemistry Data” (CNIF #27); Josh Bishop, PhD, Chemical Information Track
  • Monday, August 17, 9:35-10:00a.m. , Boston Park Plaza Hotel Berkeley/Clarendon Room: “Advances in the Visualization of Urban Air Quality Data and Environment Monitoring Using TIBCO Spotfire and the Elm™ Sensor Network” (ENVR #118); Kathryn Kuhr, Environmental Track
  • Wednesday, August 19, 3:50-4:10p.m. , Boston Convention Center Room 104A: “Chemical Research Toolkit: An End-to-End Solution” (CNIF #147); Josh Bishop, Ph.D., Chemical Information Track
