Accelrys Releases Three New Component Collections for SciTegic Pipeline Pilot(TM), the Scientific Operating Platform for Discovery and Development.

New Collections Provide Functionality in the Areas of Advanced Image Analysis, Chemical Text Mining, and Gene Expression Analysis

SAN DIEGO -- Accelrys, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACCL), a leading provider of scientific business intelligence software and services, today announced the release of three new component collections for SciTegic Pipeline Pilot[TM], the platform for scientific discovery and development. The new component collections feature functionality in the areas of advanced image analysis, chemical mining and gene expression that make it easier to define and deploy protocols to a broader audience.

The Advanced Imaging Collection brings SciTegic Pipeline Pilot's powerful data integration capabilities to research and development workflows enabling unparalleled learning, clustering, modeling, statistical analysis, reporting and archiving of images, video and associated data. Template protocols allow rapid development of custom applications such as drill-down reporting and image link capabilities. With the SciTegic Pipeline Pilot open platform, almost any standard image file format can be accommodated for scientific, medical and industrial applications.

The ChemMining Collection allows scientists to mine and analyze the world's patent literature and find opportunities for new drug candidates. Similarly, it can be used to create a chemically aware knowledge base of internal documents to obtain a coherent understanding of current and past projects in large drug discovery organizations. The Collection facilitates the creation of flexible workflows that search text documents to find chemical names, convert them to live structures, and create a searchable chemical database.

The Gene Expression Collection empowers researchers to identify potential drug targets and biomarker candidates. With this Collection, scientists can process, analyze, explore, and report on gene expression experiments. Robust and flexible BioConductor-based workflows deliver automation and web-based bioinformatics solutions that allow increased productivity in research labs in biotechnology and pharmaceutical organizations.

"The tools in the new component collections extend the scientific operating platform by allowing a broader range of users access to the powerful processing and analysis tools in the platform's user-friendly graphical programming environment. This is another example of how Accelrys helps enable our customers to gain deeper insights and make more informed decisions based on their scientific data across the research and development continuum," said Mark J. Emkjer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Accelrys.
