PRESS RELEASE

StarDrop 5.2

Optibrium has introduced a new version of its StarDrop platform. StarDrop 5.2 is the first result of the technology exchange between Optibrium and Cresset announced earlier this year and enables chemists to understand the 3D structure activity relationship (SAR) of their chemistry in order to optimise their compounds. The new plug-in module provides users with access to Cresset’s FieldAlign technology, which will complement StarDrop’s existing 2D QSAR models.

Version 5.2 also introduces new enhancements of StarDrop’s core capabilities, in particular a flexible tool for performing automatic R-group analysis. This new feature analyses a chemical series to interactively visualise the impact of variations to R-groups, linkers, atoms or fragments on compound properties to help chemists identify new optimisation strategies. StarDrop can also enumerate the full, combinatorial library to explore the properties of compounds that have not yet been synthesised and identify potential missed opportunities.
