Short Take: Ariba, Sigma-Aldrich, Emax in alliance for life science industry

Ariba, Sigma-Aldrich and Emax today announced they will collaborate to introduce a Web-based solution for managing the research supply chain for pharmaceutical, biotechnology and other life science companies. A large pharmaceutical company will screen as many as 100,000 compounds in a single day, and current technologies used, such as high-throughput screening, combinatorial chemistry and pharmacogenomics, are time-consuming and costly for scientists, Emax said in a statement. The electronic research supply chain created by the alliance will enable users to remotely search large, fast-changing catalogs of research chemicals, and to automatically transmit the unique chemical and safety characteristics of each property. Emax Solution Partners is a provider of electronic research asset management solutions, Sigma-Aldrich is a provider of research chemicals, and Ariba is a provider of business-to-business e-commerce software.
