Optibrium Introduces Database Query Interface for StarDrop
Providing instant access to compound data to interpret, model and guide drug discovery decisions
Optibrium™, a developer of software for small molecule drug discovery and optimisation, today announced the commercial launch of a database Query Interface for users of the company’s StarDrop software. The new tool provides an adaptable interface between an organisation’s own research data management systems and StarDrop’s unique compound design and optimisation capabilities. Instant access to the latest data, with which a project team can interpret and model their chemistry, is a key challenge in enabling drug discovery programmes to make effective data-driven decisions.
Selecting compounds based on incomplete or out-of-date information or designing new compounds without the latest results can lead to wasted time and effort. Optibrium’s database Query Interface is an intuitive and graphical software tool that allows researchers to create, share and execute structured queries of the data contained in their chosen data management system and present the results in StarDrop. Through a seamless connection, data can be visualised and analysed in StarDrop to identify optimisation strategies and guide the design of new, high quality compounds. Real-time access to the latest data in the context of a chemistry research project informs decision-making and shortens project timelines.
Dr Matthew Segall, Optibrium’s CEO, commented: “Getting data out of chemical databases in a way that the information can then be easily interpreted and analysed is often difficult for users. Our Query Interface enables StarDrop to be fully integrated into a client’s informatics infrastructure and, as such, offers project leaders and decision makers instant access to the latest and most relevant data for their projects.”
