CHEMIST SOFTWARE

Modern software for plastics and packaging chemists and technical teams

Request a Demo >
Developing innovative new plastics and packaging products is hard enough without trying to go about it with inadequate tools. Chemists iterate and capture their details in legacy ELN systems, or jot down details in a physical notebook. Testing teams capture test results in their legacy LIMS, Excel or notebooks.

When teams work in disconnected systems, they can’t see the helpful upstream or downstream data surrounding each project. Siloed software for chemists and testing teams also make it hard to collaborate, hard to get a comprehensive view of each project, and hard to speed up innovation.

The Alchemy Applied Science Platform gives plastics and packaging teams integrated ELN and LIMS chemistry software in one modern solution. Alchemy helps companies develop, service, and monetize their products more efficiently with software embedded with artificial intelligence (AI)-driven insights that accelerate innovation and work.
“We knew Alchemy would help us move faster by giving us all our data in one place.”
- Dr. Mari Granström, Chief Scientist & Co-Founder of Origin by Ocean
