SAN DIEGO, Feb. 4, 2013

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Accelrys, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACCL), a
leading provider of scientific innovation lifecycle management software, today
announced exciting new chemistry information management possibilities for
research scientists arising from Accelrys' cooperation with Elsevier.
Scientists now can directly access and leverage the trusted Reaxys chemistry
workflow solution from the Accelrys Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN). This
interoperability makes search and retrieval of crucial chemical reactions,
substances and related property data faster, more efficient and directly
consumable by the multidisciplinary Accelrys Electronic Lab Notebook. The
ability to leverage Reaxys content via the Accelrys Electronic Lab Notebook
enhances synthesis planning and documentation in discovery, accelerates
process development and speeds scientific innovation and productivity.

Dr. Matt Hahn, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Accelrys,
highlighted the benefits of this innovation, saying, "The Reaxys integration
provides rapid, in situ access to an extensive and valued source of chemical
information, accelerating cost-effective research and improving outcomes in
upstream R&D and downstream process development. Specifically, the ability to
execute full reaction searches through the Reaxys interface beyond just
searching for molecules will accelerate innovation."

Starting from the Accelrys ELN, chemists, biologists and materials scientists
in industry, government and academia now can search a wealth of
experimentally validated chemical reactions while also leveraging a depth of
substance data and related properties in organic, organometallic, inorganic
and physical chemistry. The data received from the Reaxys output is easily
manageable through end-user scripting, making the output valuable for many
different scientific operations.

Meeuwis van Arkel, vice president of product development at Elsevier,
explained how the delivery of chemistry information in context would support
efficient research, saying, "Easy retrieval of relevant and actionable results
at the right time in the right context means scientists can move more quickly
through their workflow steps to deliver superior, rapid and more
cost-effective outcomes."
