Optibrium, a developer of software for drug discovery, today announced the launch of Sentira, a new desktop application that provides dynamic data visualisation and analysis of compound data. Applicable across all fields of chemistry, Sentira enables users to quickly find patterns in compound data, visualise structure-activity relationships (SAR) and elegantly present and report findings. Researchers can intuitively review and interpret compound data sets from large screening libraries to individual chemical series in drug discovery, agrochemical, flavourings, cosmetics, fragrances and other industries.
Sentira provides a comprehensive range of plots, all with extensive and fully customisable features. Multiple plots can be created side-by-side, all dynamically linked to each other and the underlying data set, enabling quick identification of important relationships between compound properties. Flexible tools for SAR and matched pair analysis, coupled with a link to the underlying compound structures, affords insightful and intelligent compound data analysis.
Sentira’s simple design and user-friendly environment provides data management tools to perform calculations, merge, sort, filter and tag data sets, and import and export industry standard file formats on Mac or PC. Sentira also makes it easy to professionally present the results of analyses in presentations and reports.
Available for download from www.sentira-software.com, users can immediately get started with a free 30-day trial. Following this, flexible and cost-effective Sentira licensing options are available, including monthly, annual and perpetual plans.
Sentira is a new addition to Optibrium’s portfolio of products, which also includes: StarDrop, a flagship platform that provides comprehensive capabilities for the design and selection of high quality compounds; and Asteris, an iPad app that enables interactive compound design and predictive modelling, wherever and whenever it’s required.
Dr Matthew Segall, Optibrium’s CEO, commented “We recognised the need for a user-friendly, yet powerful, compound data visualisation application at a reasonable price. By leveraging the development that we had already undertaken in StarDrop, we are pleased to be able to offer such a solution as part of our expanded range of software products.”
