ChemAxon, Patcore Ink Software Distribution Agreement

Premium

ChemAxon said this week that it has signed an agreement with Patcore that allows it to distribute the Japanese cheminformatics software company's applications globally.

Patcore produces and markets the CRAIS product series — a suite of cheminformatics applications based on ChemAxon's toolkits that cover many research processes such as compound registration, assay management, data browsing, collaborative interfaces, structure design, and controlled substance compliance.

The suite is comprised of Checker, a controlled substances check system; Transformer, which is used to generate ideas for lead optimization; Browser, used for exploring chemical and biological data; a tool for compound registration; and Assay, which is a standardized environment for registering assay results.

The financial details of the agreement were not disclosed.
