Spotfire Introduces Leads Discoverer and Releases Structural Visualizer 2.0


CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--Spotfire, a provider of research and development software, announced the availability of two new products recently. Leads Discoverer, already in use by DuPont Pharmaceuticals, is a system for accessing, analyzing, and sharing high-throughput screening and chemical structure information on the internet or an intranet. Chemists at DuPont employ the program to access high-throughput datasets residing in Oracle databases and to integrate the data with chemical structure data from MDL Information Systems' ISIS database, Spotfire said.

The version of Structural Visualizer, a tool for linking data analysis and exploration capabilities of Spotfire Pro with ISIS chemical structure datasets, includes features such as a "shopping cart" model for creating, storing, and sharing lists of compounds, added substructure and similarity search options, and better interoperability with MDL's ISIS database.
