BUDAPEST, Hungary, November 14 /PRNewswire/ -- ChemAxon, a software
solutions provider for life sciences, announced the free provision of
licenses for university users of an open source chemical inventory web
application provided by Chemicalinventory.org.
Chemicalinventory.org is an open source project initiated by Dann
Vestergaard and Claus Stie Kallesoe as a thesis project at their Post
Graduate IT Diploma studies. Dann Vestergaard has experience as a LIMS
supporter in a Danish Pharmaceutical Company but is now a full time
programmer. Claus Stie Kallesoe is trained as a Medicinal Chemist and has

Chemicalinventory is a web application that manages the chemical stock in
a laboratory-, production- or other facilities, where chemicals must be
safely stored, easily found and tracked. This inventory solution is relevant
to any facility which stores chemicals and is currently (since 2003)
productive at The Danish University of Pharmaceutical Sciences with 70 users.
The structure input, search and visualization components of
Chemicalinventory are provided by ChemAxon's Marvin editor and viewer and
JChem Base chemical search and database management tools. As a developer
toolkit, with a full application programming interface (API), these tools are
optimal for integrating into larger solution applications where ongoing
development is a key to the application utility.
ChemAxon's support for the chemical inventory application allows
university users to receive free licenses to enable the application in their
laboratories. The free provision to universities is a part of ChemAxon's
'Powered by Academic Package' program where any educational establishment can
receive licenses and support for all ChemAxon products at no charge. Launched
last year the program has so far attracted over 270 participants. For more
