Optibrium introduces database Query Interface for StarDrop
Optibrium, a developer of software for small molecule drug discovery and optimisation, has 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 research data management systems and StarDrop’s compound design and optimisation capabilities.
Selecting compounds based on incomplete or out-of-date information or designing new compounds without the latest results can lead to wasted time and effort.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.
This software provides instant access to the latest data, which a project team can interpret to accelerate the development of new, high-quality compounds – a key challenge in enabling drug discovery programmes to make effective data-driven decisions.
Combining these software capabilities means that data can be visualised and analysed in StarDrop to identify optimisation strategies and guide the design of new, high-quality compounds. Additionally, Real-time access to the latest data in the context of a chemistry research project informs decision-making and helps to shorten 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.’
