San Diego and Santa Clara, CA. – Accelrys and Agilent Technologies have announced that they have entered into an agreement to allow Agilent to distribute an embedded version of Accelrys’ SciTegic Pipeline Pilot with Agilent OpenLAB software solution. Agilent expects to have a commercial version of Embedded Pipeline Pilot (Embedded PP) available in the first half of 2008.
Accelrys and Agilent entered into a comprehensive resale agreement last fall that covers the breadth of both companies’ informatics portfolios. As part of the agreement, Accelrys offers Agilent’s OpenLAB Enterprise Content Manager, Kalabie Electronic Lab Notebook, and GeneSpring (a gene expression solution). Agilent offers Accord cheminformatics solutions and Pipeline Pilot Scientific Operating Platform solutions.
“This OEM agreement builds on our partnership with Accelrys to provide our customers with integrated informatics solutions,” said Bruce von Herrmann, Agilent vice president and general manager, Software and Informatics Division. “It will significantly benefit pharmaceutical companies that want to spend less time integrating existing informatics solutions and more time developing new, more effective medicines.
“The recent OEM agreement with Agilent allows us to continue to enhance the broad range of scientific business intelligence solutions to our chemical and pharmaceutical customers and introduce SciTegic Pipeline Pilot into Agilent markets including laboratory informatics, QA/QC and manufacturing,” said Mark J. Emkjer, president and chief executive officer, Accelrys.
