CARY, N.C. & SOLANA BEACH, Calif. -- April 02, 2013

SciQuest (NASDAQ: SQI), a leading provider of cloud-based business automation
solutions, and eMolecules, creator of the industry’s most powerful compound
sourcing platform, announced today a partnership to make available eMolecules’
catalog of in-stock molecular building blocks within SciQuest’s Enterprise
Reagent Manager (ERM) platform. ERM users can now directly and seamlessly
purchase in-stock molecular building blocks via eMolecules’ market-leading

SciQuest’s Enterprise Reagent Manager is a procurement-focused chemical
inventory solution used by seven of the world’s top 10 life science
organizations and leading higher education institutions. The eMolecules
catalog integrates seamlessly into ERM’s “one-stop-shop,” allowing researchers
to review all available inventory and catalog sourcing options with a single

“Traditionally, due to hundreds of small specialty suppliers, searching and
sourcing of molecular building blocks is expensive and time consuming for
researchers,” said Tom Russell, General Manager, SciQuest Enterprise
Solutions. “Purchasing and delivery are also subject to high costs, delays and
quality issues. Through this integration with eMolecules, ERM customers gain
instant access to building blocks that are available and ready to be shipped,
resulting in significant time and cost savings.”

“As the new go-to data source for ERM, eMolecules aims to deliver significant
time and cost savings to SciQuest’s customers while providing reliable
sourcing and delivery of their building blocks,” said Niko Gubernator, PhD,
eMolecules CEO.

eMolecules has curated data for 650,000 in-stock and verified building blocks
from its supplier network, and the continuously updated hosted catalog ensures
accurate availability information from suppliers. Researchers save significant
time in finding and acquiring the compounds they need, and the organization
saves money via discounts eMolecules has negotiated.

SciQuest’s ERM solution with the eMolecules integrated catalog offers
significant benefits for any organization performing chemical research:

  *Reuse of in-house inventory provides faster access to chemicals and
    reduces purchase, carrying, and disposal costs of redundant inventory by
    as much as 15 percent of annual chemical spend.
  *Use of preferred suppliers enhances contract compliance and reduces
    purchase costs by as much as 10 percent of annual chemical spend.
  *EHS and regulatory approvals, tracking, and reporting built into the
    process improve compliance and inventory accuracy.
  *Streamline all chemical inventory capture and tracking activities to
    reduce data entry, errors and overhead.
