"Many of today's discovery data warehouse solutions require chemists and biologists to become information technology specialists instead of more informed and agile discovery scientists," said Bryan Koontz, senior vice president and general manager of Discovery Informatics for Tripos.
"Instead of wasting valuable time formulating complicated queries or being forced to become Microsoft Excel experts, project teams using Benchware Discovery 360 can now quickly find, analyse and act on the research data they need, no matter where it exists inside their company."
The Benchware Discovery 360 enables discovery scientists to access and analyse enterprise wide chemical and biological research data from within a single integrated desktop discovery environment.
The software becomes the newest member of the Benchware family of applications designed for laboratory scientists, including discovery chemists and biologists.
It is built on Tripos' original SMART-IDEA informatics system that was built in collaboration with Bristol-Myers Squibb.
The Bristol-Myers Squibb implementation is currently deployed to users throughout the US and Canada allowing scientists and team leaders to access and analyse essential project information on demand.
Tripos said that these capabilities would enable life science organisations to gain better insight into their drug discovery projects, improve scientific collaboration, and allow discovery teams to fully realise the value in the data they are generating.
