July 27, 2018

It’s Back to School season and we all know that means a lot of new goodies are being gathered to ensure a successful new year. To ensure our customers are not left out, CDD has filled your CDD Vault with several new features designed to ensure your continued success!

Search/Insert Existing CDD Objects into your ELN Entries

1. Search/Insert Existing Runs of Protocols
You’ve been searching for and inserting links to existing Molecules and Protocols within your ELN entries already but now we’ve added the ability to search for and insert a link to a specific Run of Protocol data.


2. Display Structures for Existing Molecules Inserted into your ELN
You asked, we delivered… When you search for an existing Molecule and insert a link to that Molecule within your ELN entry, you can now choose to display that Molecule’s chemical structure. In fact, you may now choose between 3 display options: (1) the Molecule ID, (2) any custom text you wish to provide, or (3) the chemical structure.


To make this extra special, when you choose to display the structure of your linked Molecules, they will be indexed and fully sub-structure searchable within your ELN.

Chemical Structure Display

ACS style guide
According to the ACS Style Guide the “… communication of chemical structures is inherently visual, so the language of both chemistry and biochemistry would be sparse without the ability to accurately represent chemistry in a graphical format.” So, they developed a set of recommended guidelines for representing chemical structures. Since these guidelines are widely adopted by scientific journals, we’ve incorporated them into CDD Vault.

Display Projects for Molecules & Batches in the Search Results Table
When displaying Molecules and/or Batches in your Search Results Table, it is now possible to add columns displaying their Project assignments.
