Torx® Software announces global drug discovery collaboration with CDD Vault®
Torx® Software Limited announces a collaboration with CDD Vault to facilitate the seamless synthesis and registration of new compounds during the small-molecule drug discovery process.
Torx, is a cloud-based platform developed by Cresset and Elixir™ Software which enables chemistry teams to collaborate, design molecules and track compound synthesis across the design-make-test-analyze (DMTA) cycle. CDD Vault is a hosted data management system for chemical registration and secure storage of scientific data. The optional integration of Torx and CDD Vault creates an automated, shared digital ecosystem. This enables rapid transfer of data between platforms and allows users to access the information they need without switching context.
Data acquired and used in Torx can be seamlessly transferred and stored in CDD Vault, for optimum efficiency and security. Integration with CDD Vault can be initiated with any or all of the Torx modules, enabling chemists and managers to easily interact with CDD Vault data across the DMTA process enhancing efficiency and decision making.
Commenting on the collaboration Dr Barry Bunin, CEO of CDD Vault said: "CDD Vault is a whole solution for drug discovery informatics structure activity relationship (SAR) management differentiated via ease-of-adoption and scalable data partitioning capabilities. We believe in the value of collaboration and building an ecosystem of software partners that together can better serve our customers. CDD Vault's integration with Torx, a leading platform for drug design and synthesis, will enable a more efficient drug discovery data workflow."
Dr Tim Cheeseright, CEO of Torx Software added: “Torx is an unrivalled DMTA solution for managing the complete molecule life-cycle in a single platform, from ideation to synthesis, testing, and data analysis. By integrating Torx with CDD Vault, users can streamline their processes enabling them to use the latest data in design or synchronize test requests with stored assays.
One company set to benefit from this is Evariste, an AI-first biotech which has built an automated platform to accelerate the pre-clinical stages of drug discovery. Evariste operates virtually, with no internal laboratories, and uses CROs for all synthesis. They are in the process of integrating their Torx Make instance with CDD Vault, which will further enhance their efficiencies as they look to accelerate the drug discovery process.
Collating registration data in Torx enables chemists to review and approve molecule syntheses before automatic deposition in CDD vault through the API integration. This enables chemists to work efficiently in a single application while collecting detailed DMTA metrics and data.
Anna Hercot, CEO of Evariste commented: “Expanding our use of Torx by integrating it with CDD Vault will be of great benefit to our virtual modelling platform, helping us reach and register target molecules more quickly.”
Torx Software is the synergistic collaboration between Cresset and Elixir Software, producing the only complete DMTA (design-make-test-analyze) solution on the market. Its visual web-based platform enables medicinal/synthetic chemists and research teams to coordinate efforts and optimize the entire molecule design, compound synthesis, testing, and data analysis cycle.
CDD's flagship product, "CDD Vault", is used to manage chemical registration, structure-activity relationships (SAR), and securely scale collaborations. CDD Vault is a hosted database solution for secure management and sharing of biological and chemical data. It lets you intuitively organize chemical structures and biological study data, and collaborate with internal or external partners through an easy-to-use web interface. Available modules within CDD Vault include Activity and Registration, Visualization, Inventory, and ELN.
