Holmes Chapel, Cheshire, United Kingdom, 2011/07/22 - Providing an enhanced solution for viewing compound structures and data in drug discovery - Optibrium.com / ScottPR.com.
Optibrium, a provider of software solutions for drug discovery, today launches a new version of StarVue, its innovative free desktop application that enables scientists to quickly and conveniently view sets of compound structures and related data. The latest version of StarVue can be downloaded free from Optibrium’s on-line community.
StarVue 1.1 is newly compatible with the recently released StarDrop 5, a software platform that intuitively guides the design and selection of high quality compounds in drug discovery. This compatibility improves the ease with which compound data generated with StarDrop and other sources can be shared, without the need for expensive spreadsheet plug-ins.
The new version of the StarVue desktop application, specifically designed for scientists searching for a simple way to explore molecule structures and associated data, has been developed in response to feedback received following its initial launch in February 2010. Improvements have been introduced to the way data can be browsed while retaining the innovative visual interface and capacity for organising, sorting and merging data sets that StarVue previously offered. Data can be easily loaded into StarVue from SD, MOL, SMILES or CSV files, as well as StarDrop’s native format.
The close integration of StarVue and StarDrop makes the results of StarDrop’s unique predictions and multi-parameter analysis available to a wider audience, improving the flow of information and a project team’s ability to make effective decisions to quickly target novel molecules with the required balance of properties to become drug development candidates.
Free StarVue support is available via Optibrium’s on-line community. This website provides direct access to the Optibrium support team and other StarVue and StarDrop users, encouraging a rich environment for user interaction and idea sharing. The Optibrium community forum gives users the opportunity to discuss best-practice methods and approaches in the drug optimisation field.
