Spotfire Links Software with IDBS and OxMol


CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--Spotfire has announced two separate integration agreements with IDBS of Guildford, UK, and Oxford Molecular Group. With IDBS, Spotfire will link its decision support software to the company's drug discovery data management system, ActivityBase, thus enabling scientists to access discovery data in ActivityBase, perform detailed analyses of the data, and distribute their findings to colleagues via Spotfire software in addition to the decision support tools within ActivityBase. In a similar arrangement, Spotfire will provide access to Oxford Molecular's RS3 Discovery database to allow scientists and cheminformatics personnel to access biological activity and chemical structure data stored in RS3 for interactive exploration and analysis in Spotfire Structure Visualizer and Spotfire Pro. The arrangement extends both companies' decision support offerings for the cheminformatics segment of pre-clinical drug discovery.
