In-Silico Screening using PhysChem, ADME, and Toxicity Predictions

With accurate prediction of physicochemical properties, ADME parameters, and toxicological endpoints the ACD/Percepta platform offers a number of solutions for fast and convenient compound profiling and screening of small molecule libraries.

High Throughput Chemical Screening (HTCS) for Hit Selection in Early Discovery

Screening of tens of thousands of compounds can be achieved in minutes using ACD/Labs' Windows or Linux-based batch prediction modules, with minimal operator intervention. Results can be exported in a number of formats for further analysis.

Batch predictors may also be plugged into a variety of workflow tools (including Accelrys' Pipeline Pilot) as part of a larger library screening process.

Easy training of the prediction modules with experimental data means that the model applicability domain can be expanded to cover novel compound space.

Medium Throughput In Silico Screening

The spreadsheet interface of the Percepta prediction modules and Profilers offers tools for conveniently profiling tens to hundreds of compounds.

Profiler tools allow the complete molecular property profile of molecules to be reviewed and analyzed in a single interface; while prediction modules offer detailed insights for decision-support.

Screening for Lead Optimization

Both the Profiler products and the ACD/Structure Design Engine can help focus synthetic efforts on analogs that meet property requirements. Screening of 1–100 compounds is easily achieved with the Percepta profiling tools (described above). The addition of Structure Design Engine functionality offers the capability to probe novel chemical space through modification of substituents to meet physicochemical and ADME requirements. The safety profile of generated analogs can be predicted to provide a ranking of analogs for synthesis.
