CARLSBAD, CA, February 1, 2011 — 3E Company, a leading provider of environmental health and safety (EH&S) compliance and information management services, and Kelaroo, a leading provider of proprietary software systems for the life sciences industry, today announced a strategic alliance and the release of 3E MSDS Management for Kelaroo’s Reagent Management System (KRMS).
Under the terms of the agreement, 3E Company and Kelaroo have teamed to integrate 3E OnlineTM-MSDS with KRMS. The integrated solution enables KRMS users to automatically retrieve required Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) for chemicals and reagents registered in the KRMS from 3E Company’s extensive database of up-to-date MSDSs.
With this integration, KRMS provides a constant connection to the customer’s 3E Online-MSDS platform. Essential details for existing and newly registered reagents in the KRMS system are communicated to a customer’s 3E Online platform via a dedicated and secure web service. Classification information, developed and carried out by 3E Company’s team of experts, is returned and stored automatically within the KRMS system for each reagent. The latest MSDS is available for each reagent and retrievable on demand via 3E Online-MSDS through a convenient live link within the KRMS application.
“We selected 3E for its industry-renowned expertise, service, and data quality. The integrated system is completely automated and does not require any extra work for the customer. Automatic updates ensure that only the most up-to-date and accurate classification data and MSDSs are accessed,” said Andrew Reum, president, Kelaroo, Inc. “We’re excited to provide this capability to KRMS users, especially because hazard classification, compliance, and reporting are important functions of any chemical inventory system. This integration provides our customers with a turnkey solution.”
3E Company’s team of experts continually reviews the product catalog to ensure that MSDSs are verified as current from the manufacturers. Based on the revision date of the MSDS, 3E Company determines MSDS currency. All updated information is automatically registered and available from within the KRMS system and interface.
“EH&S and R&D professionals in the life sciences want more tightly integrated systems with access to more information. With 3E MSDS Management for KRMS, they get just that. 3E’s MSDS management and regulatory content services are flexible and can be fully integrated into many applications in a myriad of industries and environments,” said Chris Kraus, director of Strategic Alliances, 3E Company. “3E for KRMS is the latest example of the continued execution of our content integration alliance strategy.”
