Dear Dr. Fellowes:
I work for Cambridge Scientific Computing, and I can assure you that ChemDraw
is NOT worth NZ$1495. It is, however, a steal at NZ$795, which is its
current price through our New Zealand distributor. CS ChemDraw Pro is also
a bargain at its asking price of NZ$1495. CS ChemDraw Pro offers several
features beyond those of CS ChemDraw, including the support for color,
user-definable templates, and the ability to interpret additional file
formats including (but not restricted to) MDL MOLFile and SMILES.
If the Canterbury Health Laboratories are part of an educational institution
(some hospitals are; some aren't), you would be eligible for even steeper
You could contact our New Zealand distributor at:
