Ceiba and ChemAxon Create Partnership for Chemical Data Management and Analysis


BOSTON, Mass and Budapest, Hungary, July 12, 2012— Ceiba and ChemAxon announced today a collaborative partnership between the two organizations.  ChemAxon’s JChem for Excel and Ceiba’s Helium products will interoperate within the Microsoft Excel® environment to provide users with an easy, seamless means to explore and analyze chemical structures and related data across multiple disparate data sources. 
Helium, an award-winning product for cross-source datatyping and exploration, allows the user to easily bring into Excel disparate internal and external research data.  Once data are in Excel, JChem for Excel provides powerful chemical structure handling and visualization capabilities.  With JChem for Excel thousands of structure rows can be viewed, edited, searched, resized, ordered, and managed quickly.  JChem for Excel also includes more advanced functionality, such as structure-based calculations, R-group decomposition, and library enumeration. 
Helium augments JChem for Excel’s functionality by allowing the user to bring into Excel additional data related to the chemical information – anything from biological and clinical data to project and financial information.  Helium also provides directly within Excel relevant, datatype-specific web service functions to allow further data analysis and manipulation.
“We’re very excited about our partnership with ChemAxon,” said Warren Casey, Ceiba’s CEO.  “It’s no secret that ChemAxon provides industry-leading software for cheminformatics.  ChemAxon’s products, together with Helium and Ceiba’s implementation services, will really make a positive impact in the life science industry and beyond.”
“Helium is a great addition to JChem for Excel and ChemAxon’s solution offer” said Alex Drijver, CEO of ChemAxon. “With large and small life science R&D increasingly adopting our platform and JChem for Excel in particular, Helium helps greatly in getting more value from your data and so offers a multiplier for your ROI.”
