OmniViz and ChemAxon Extend Data Visualization and Analysis Agreement

  • OmniViz and ChemAxon are extending their existing agreement to integrate the latest version of their technologies. OmniViz will thus incorporate the latest MarvinView 4.1.4 release into the next version of their software.

    A prior deal provided ChemAxon's Marvin chemical visualization suite within OmniViz' Titanium data visualization and analysis product. The OmniViz Titanium product provides visualizations designed to answer fundamental questions about data. The chemical structure visualization allows researchers to understand and work directly with chemical structures.

    Through implementation of the latest version, users will be able to work with more structure and image file formats, including the InChI file format.
