Certara, a provider of software and scientific consulting services to improve productivity and decision-making from drug discovery through clinical development, has signed a partnership agreement with ChemAxon.
The partnership will focus on providing access to ChemAxon’s MarvinSketch and JChem Cartridge for Oracle through Certara’s D360, a solution for queries for, analysis of and visualisation of scientific data. It is used by pharmaceutical and biotech companies to provide unified access to disparate data sources throughout drug discovery and development, greatly improving research productivity.
The agreement with ChemAxon provides the standard D360, support for ChemAxon’s popular chemical structure sketching tool, Marvin Sketch, and JChem Chemistry data cartridge, which are used by many drug discovery scientists across the industry. 'We are very pleased to partner with ChemAxon to provide Marvin and JChem integrations as a standard D360 product capability,' said Jonathan Feldman, vice president of scientific informatics at Certara, said.
'Part of the value of D360 is being able to easily connect to an organisation’s existing infrastructure, and we are increasingly finding that ChemAxon is part of the core chemistry infrastructure.
'We are now able to seamlessly integrate and deliver other data types, such as biologic assay or preclinical safety data with chemistry data from ChemAxon via simple queries that any user can develop.'
