Sigma-Aldrich Catalog and Safety Data Now Available

November 10, 2004 by  

 Synthematix, Inc., a
provider of chemistry reaction planning and Electronic Laboratory Notebook
(ELN) systems for scientific knowledge management, announced today that Sigma-
Aldrich’s (Nasdaq: SIAL) catalog and safety data will be available to users of
the Arthur Suite.
    Scientists will be able to select and analyze compounds from tens of
thousands of the 85,000 chemical substances provided by Sigma-Aldrich.  MSDS
information will also be available from Sigma-Aldrich’s database.  Using
Synthematix’s Arthur Suite, scientists can plan their chemical reactions with
accuracy, safety and speed.
    “We are extremely pleased to announce this latest collaboration with the
world’s leading supplier of chemicals for research,” said Steve Jones, CEO of
Synthematix.  “This is yet another step in furthering our vision of the Arthur
Suite as the integrative solution on every research chemist’s desktop.
Chemists want to access information and order substances from Sigma-Aldrich
without difficulty, and we’re making it easier for chemists to accomplish
these objectives.”

Synthematix’s Arthur Suite is the industry’s leading ELN system for
scientific knowledge management.  The Arthur Suite enables chemists to rapidly
plan their reactions using aggregated scientific data from within the
organization and from external databases.  Experiments are easily and
accurately planned, then recorded electronically.  Templating or scaling
reactions is supported from discovery chemistry through process development.
The resulting institutional memory represents a powerful competitive advantage
for Arthur Suite’s users.
    “Synthematix and Sigma-Aldrich have enjoyed a mutually-rewarding
partnership,” said David Feldker, Vice President, SAFC, for Sigma-Aldrich.
“Synthematix is a leader in helping chemists utilize compounds for important
and safe chemical transformations.  Its innovative ELN solution is an
important contribution to the industry.  We supply the world’s leading
selection of fine chemicals-making our data more easily accessible to
Synthematix’s customers makes good business sense and supports our common
customer base.”
