    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 is an open source project initiated by Dann

     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
