Normalize, check, validate and register your chemical compounds.
Streamline your chemical decision-making processes
Compound Registration compares the uniqueness of new small molecules against those already stored in your database. It then kickstarts a decision workflow based on your configured business logic.
The system includes a database (the registry), which stores the relevant structural and accompanying information. Compounds pass through normalization, validation and quality steps before registration. If issues can’t be fixed automatically, they fall into a staging area for manual intervention. Upon successful registration, you can store the compound in a three-level hierarchy.

Why you need Compound Registration
Register compounds individually or in bulk
Add new compounds one-by-one through the web-based registration form or in bulk via the upload page. The system handles single and multi-component structures (two or more independently registered components) with all the validated custom data fields. It also supports alternates, mixtures, formulations and polymers.
You can access the registration system from other applications. The publicly available web service API makes integration (typically into an ELN) straightforward, but the service is also accessible via KNIME and Pipeline Pilot workflow tools.
Validate and check unique structures
Compound structures go through a series of standardization, validation and quality checking steps (e.g.: valence error, auto-fixes for representation issues) before registration. These include valence error checks and auto-fixes for representation issues.
You can also validate external IDs and other specified data based on your unique business logic. Compounds that don't pass the validation phase or can't be fixed automatically fall into the Staging Area for manual revision.
After validation, the system compares newly submitted chemical structures with the records in the registry. Match types include exact matches, stereoisomers, tautomeric structures and their combinations. If a structure is unknown or only partially known, the system fills gaps with Chemically Significant Text (CST).
Store compounds in a hierarchical structure
The system stores registered compounds in a three-level hierarchical structure of parents, versions and lots (or batches). In this construction, a version may describe an isotopic or salt/solvate variations of a parent, while a lot may represent different production batches of a version.
Salts and solvates are managed in a dedicated dictionary. You can easily assign the compound along with the appropriate multiplicities during the registration, or extract it from the submitted chemical structure.

Amend registered entities
Your authorized users can alter the molecular structure or data of a compound in the registry, based on different hierarchy levels. The amendments you commit to the registry are fully audited. You can also request a complete data history for selected entries.
Deploy, configure and integrate with ease
The Compound Registration system requires a Tomcat container. The publicly available REST API enables simple integration into an existing IT environment. The registration database currently supports Oracle or MySQL RDBMS and utilizes JChem tables and additional relational tables for capturing the data.
To enhance the integration capability with downstream databases and processes, Compound Registration offers a publishing engine to mirror its content in flexible formats (downstream RDBMS, xml, sdf).
You can configure large parts of the internal business logic to facilitate easy adoption and comply with your corporate business rules. The system offers a web interface for all the exposed configuration options. It also provides typical authentication modes, as well as a combination of role-based access control and permission handling based on project memberships.
