Our product

Compound Registration is a system built upon a set of web services, aiding users in decision making, with respect to the uniqueness of new small molecules - And in comparison to those already stored in the database. The decisions are made according to the configurable corporate business logic. The system includes a database (the registry) designed to store the relevant structural and accompanying information. The compounds go through normalization, validation and quality check steps before registration, and in case any issues can't be fixed automatically, they fall into a staging area. Upon successful registration, the compound can be stored in a three-level hierarchy.
