  • Save Time and Reduce Costs: explore the most cost-effective routes to your target molecules with state-of-the-art visualization and filtering options.
  • Meet Project Demands: easily customize search parameters to eliminate or promote reactions, reagents, or classes of molecules.
  • Generate new ideas and IP: explore unique and innovative syntheses that may be unknown for building your desired molecule.
  • Quickly Build a Shopping List: easily generate a list of commercially available starting materials for your synthesis.
  • Your Data is Secure: benefit from ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Certification to guarantee the confidentiality, integrity, and protection of your data.

Another cloud-based software with applications in drug discovery is AIDDISON. AIDDISON™ brings together the power of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and computer-aided drug design (CADD) methods to act as a valuable toolkit for medicinal chemists. AIDDISON™ is a unified platform for efficient and effective ligand-based and structure-based drug design, integrating all the facets for virtual screening and supporting methods for lead discovery and lead optimization.

Several innovative technologies and products to aid researchers in the discovery and development of new drugs between targeted and therapeutic approaches. Some notable components of their portfolio are:

  • Reagents and Probes for Target ID and Validation: Identifying and validating drug targets is a critical step in the drug discovery process. We provide a range of high-quality reagents and probes that assist researchers in this journey. These tools help researchers gain deeper insights into target biology and suitability for drug development.
  • Micro Mapping Dexterity Kits: These kits provide researchers with the means to perform detailed mapping of protein interactions and epitopes. By understanding the precise interactions between proteins, researchers can design more targeted and effective drug candidates. This information is crucial for developing therapies that specifically target disease-related proteins.
  • DNA Encoded Libraries - DYNA001 & DYNA002: we offer DNA-encoded libraries (DELs), a powerful tool for screening and identifying potential drug candidates. DELs are collections of small molecules that are linked to unique DNA barcodes, enabling researchers to simultaneously screen millions of compounds for their binding affinity to a specific target of interest. This technology accelerates the drug discovery process by quickly identifying hit compounds for further optimization.
  • Targeted Protein Degradation Building Blocks: Targeted protein degradation is an emerging approach in drug discovery, and we offer building blocks and tools to support this novel strategy. These reagents facilitate the development of small molecules that can specifically target disease-causing proteins for degradation, offering new possibilities for challenging drug targets.
