Biodata, producer of Labguru, the only web-based electronic lab notebook with integrated protocols and specimen management systems, and ChemAxon, a leader in providing chemistry software solutions and consulting services for life science research, announce their collaboration that led to the development of Labguru’s newest feature: chemical structure and reaction support.

Already with a set of deep domain features for biologists, bio-chemists, and more, the integration of ChemAxon’s Marvin JS™, makes it possible for chemists around the world to add chemical molecules and reaction drawings directly to their experiments, milestones, and projects within Labguru.

Labguru’s CEO, Louis Culot, has said, “Adding deep support for chemistry is a priority for Biodata in 2015. With our partnership with ChemAxon, we have started the process and look forward to further developments that enhance Labguru for chemists and biochemists, and to help them properly annotate and find experiments, and make reaction planning and optimization simpler and more powerful.”

Why ChemAxon’s Marvin JS?

Chemistry software tools have been around for many years and so Labguru’s strategy was to survey the landscape and find a powerful tool powered by a modern technology so as to keep Labguru’s reputation for cutting edge stack development. Marvin JS is completely Javascript based so it runs completely in the browser in HTML5, avoiding the hassle of Java applets, or worse, heavy C++ applications. It also is cross compatible with ChemDraw and MarvinSketch. Scientists who use these chemical editors can simply copy & paste their chemical reactions into Marvin JS with no problem while preserving the important metadata carried in the background (e.g., reaction mapping).
