CCG Has Breakthrough Library Design Technology

Premium

MONTREAL--Chemical Comput ing Group here announced its development of a breakthrough new technology for combinatorial library design, Quasar-CombiDe sign. The new technology is able to select diverse collections of molecules from extremely large chemical spaces for use in high throughput screening experiments. Quasar-CombiDesign is able to analyze compounds from chemical spaces that make prior spaces look like handfuls of compounds by comparison, Chemical Computing President Paul Labute said.
