Elsevier MDL releases MDL® Logistics 1.2


Elsevier MDL has released MDL®Logistics 1.2, the complete solution for managing reagent procurement and inventory tracking in biopharmaceutical and chemical research centers. MDL Logistics 1.2 contains powerful new features and content designed to help customers effectively manage internal chemical inventories and commercial supplier catalog data.

These features include full compatibility with the MDL® Isentris® 2.0 system, which makes MDL Logistics 1.2 an integral part of a modern research environment that delivers the information scientists need to work smarter, faster and more efficiently. Furthermore, MDL Logistics 1.2 streamlines workflows and saves time by automating the inventory reconciliation process, by providing out-of-the-box regulatory reports and by offering enhanced printing and data import/export capabilities.

In addition, full integration with MDL® Available Chemicals Directory on MDL® Direct 6.0 provides access to over 700 electronic chemical supplier catalogs. Researchers can track reagents from procurement through disposal in a workflow that supports both corporate and regulatory requirements. No other solution on the market today provides such comprehensive coverage of commercially available compounds.

“Inventory management is a business critical operation, and MDL Logistics helps customers get it right with minimal effort,” said Dr. Trevor Heritage, Senior Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer, Elsevier MDL. “This complete, flexible inventory management solution, built on the MDL Isentris system, provides an out-of-the-box solution for scientific R&D groups and can be easily customized to meet the needs of large organizations.”

MDL Logistics integrates with enterprise procurement solutions such as SAP, Ariba, Oracle® iProcurement and Microsoft® Business Solutions-Axapta® software. Critical purchasing system integration supports on-contract spending while simultaneously promoting simplified workflows, decreased cycle times and faster time-to-market.

With MDL Logistics, scientists can view and manipulate data faster using similarity searching, filtering techniques and convenient look-up fields. The enhanced user interface makes it easier to transfer containers, cherry-pick compounds, save frequently used queries or lists and generate inventory reports. The system provides automated workflows for container tracking, global inventory operations and the handling of regulated or controlled substances. Out-of-the-box integration with laboratory hardware such as barcode readers and balances can be extended to include personal digital assistants, further streamlining the management of real-time data.
