We are starting to see companies exploit the client server model in bringing ever more sophisticated scientific applications to the iPad.
Asteris is a joint development from Optibrium the creators of StarDrop and Integrated Chemistry Design who created Chirys Draw. Asteris uses Chirys Draw’s touch interface to design novel molecules and then uses StarDrop’s predictive modeling power, guided by the Glowing Molecule™ visualization, instant feedback dramatically reduces the time it takes you to identify high quality compound designs. Using Asteris you can calculate a range of simple “core properties”, and ADME properties, including solubility, hERG inhibition and CNS penetration, using rigorously validated models from the StarDrop platform.
- CORE PROPERTIES
- Molecular Weight
- Number of rotatable bonds
- Number of hydrogen bond donors
- Number of hydrogen bond acceptors
- Topological polar surface area.
- STARDROP ADME PROPERTIES
- 2C9 pKi
- BBB log([brain]:[blood])
- BBB category
- HIA category
- P-gp category
- 2D6 affinity category
- PPB90 category
All of the predictions are calculated using StarDrop ’s ADME QSAR module. You will need to be connected to the internet to perform these calculations using the secure Asteris cloud server.Alternatively, you can run the calculations on your own server with the “Enterprise” edition.
All communications with the server uses industry-standard SSL encryption. No compound structures or data are stored on the server. Calculate "core properties" for an unlimited number of molecules for free. Calculate ADME properties for 20 new compounds each month, free of charge. Additional ADME property calculations can be purchased via an in-app purchase.
