Agilent to Embed Accelrys' Pipeline Pilot in OpenLAB Software Under OEM Deal

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Accelrys and Agilent said today that they have signed an original equipment manufacturer agreement that will allow Agilent to distribute an embedded version of Accelrys' SciTegic Pipeline Pilot workflow software with its own OpenLAB enterprise content management software.
Agilent expects to have a commercial version of the Accelrys software, called Embedded Pipeline Pilot, available in the first half of the year.
The OEM deal builds upon a resale agreement the companies signed last fall under which Accelrys has been reselling Agilent's OpenLAB, Kalabie electronic lab notebook, and GeneSpring gene-expression analysis software, while Agilent has been selling Accelrys’ Accord cheminformatics solutions and Pipeline Pilot.
Financial terms of the OEM agreement were not provided.
