BIOVIA Pipeline Pilot

As official BIOVIA re-seller in Europe Discngine offers BIOVIA's flagship for scientific workflow programming and authoring, Pipeline Pilot.

Create & publish science-based services in the blink of an eye

Built on the BIOVIA Foundation, Pipeline Pilot enables scientists to rapidly create, test and publish scientific services that automate the process of accessing, analyzing and reporting scientific data, either for the scientist’s personal use or for sharing across the scientific community. Using Pipeline Pilot, scientist, researchers, engineers, and analysts with little or no software development experience can create scientific protocols that can be executed through a variety of interfaces including Accelrys Web Port, other Accelrys solutions such as Accelrys Electronic Lab Notebook, Isentris, Chemical Registration and third-party applications such as Microsoft SharePoint or customer-developed applications. These protocols aggregate and provide immediate access to volumes of disparate research data locked in silos. They automate the scientific analysis of the data and enable researchers to rapidly explore, visualize and report results.

In order to address new challenging areas with Pipeline Pilot you can extend the platform by purpose built component collections. These allow advanced analysis capabilities in areas like Image Analysis, Chemistry, ADMET Analysis & Prediction, Next Generation Sequencing, Pipeline Pilot Analytics and Machine Learning and many more.

 BIOVIA Electronic Lab Notebook

Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELNs) are rapidly becoming a core part of every laboratory operation in industries from pharmaceuticals, to chemicals, to consumer goods and more. ELNs streamline the documentation and protection of intellectual property, help scientists collaborate in increasingly global and networked activities from discovery to manufacturing, and make scientific data and observations associated with experimentation easier to search, find and use.

An ELN can be more than just simply an electronic version of a paper laboratory notebook. It provides additional value through use of data and information, the creation and maintenance of a knowledge repository, and improved efficiency in the laboratory. With an ELN you can record, organize and secure experimental information to find, share and reuse critical knowledge globally.

Benefits of an ELN:

  • Protect IP - document invention and innovation for patent filings, defense, and interferences

  • Collaborate locally or globally within and between departments

  • Reduce compliance risks and improve data quality

  • Cut cycle times by 50% - reducing the time spent looking for data

  • Lower costs by 25% - eliminating repeat experiments

  • Improve productivity by 25% - removing non-value added manual activities and human errors

BIOVIA as the leading provider of ELNs offers solutions for different user requirements when moving from paper and Excel to an electronic solution:
