2020-01-31 Labii Supports Chemical Drawing With Marvin JS


Since 2016, the FDA has approved 40-50 new drugs every year; this number represents just a fraction of the drugs that were actually discovered and tested. Drug discovery and development is driven by the knowledge of molecular chemistry and biological processes and facilitated by technological advances. Labii Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) and Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) is accelerating research in this field by developing chemistry widgets that extend the functionality of our existing software. Chemistry plays a crucial role in the development of drugs. Before new methods for discovering molecules were available, new drugs were primarily discovered by modifying molecules from natural products. Development of new technologies such as high-throughput screening accelerated drug discovery. Regardless of the era, chemists are responsible for selecting and synthesizing compounds to address a wide range of diseases, and understanding chemical biology is important in every stage of drug discovery and development, from initial discovery to clinical trials and, finally, FDA approval. Chemical editors facilitate the process by allowing scientists to visualize and manipulate chemical compounds. Labii Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) and Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) is pleased to support chemical editors like Marvin JS directly in our software. Marvin JS is ChemAxon's novel chemical editor designed specifically for chemistry professionals. This revolutionary application provides a clean, user-oriented tool to efficiently draw and modify chemical structures, reactions, and electron transfers. Users can rotate or mirror whole or partial molecules and have access to several tools that facilitate complex structure creation. In addition, Marvin JS is easily integrated with web-based applications like Labii Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) and Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS). Marvin JS is one of many widgets supported in Labii ELN & LIMS. These widgets are stand-alone functions that allow users to edit or process specific pieces of data. Including widgets in Labii electronic notebook ensures our software meets every lab’s specific needs and extends the functionality of your existing ELN & LIMS. Marvin JS integrates seamlessly into Labii Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) and Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) as a Chemical Drawing widget, allowing you to draw and modify chemical compounds, reactions, and Markush structures. Users can create molecular structures and save the structure for later use. In the future, Labii ELN & LIMS will be integrating other similar packages, such as PerkinElmer’s ChemDraw. ChemDraw originated as a chemical drawing tool and has evolved to become one of the leading products for chemical drawing and research publications.
