Idea Tracker

Accelerate your drug discovery with collaborative design and informed decision making

Capture every design and decision throughout the discovery process with StarDrop’s Idea Tracker. Gain clear visibility of your project data with a central registration system for all new compounds recorded in StarDrop, and save time for your team by having all the relevant information in one place. Facilitate collaborative design with centralised sharing, to avoid missed opportunities and maximise the efficiency of your drug discovery.

With Idea Tracker, you can:

  • Clearly and easily see compound ideas and their progress across all your discovery projects, saving time and avoiding missed opportunities.
  • Guide future design strategies, by tracing compound ideas to their origins, identifying key optimisation decisions and understanding the journey markers of success.
  • Foster communication and collaboration by highlighting common compound ideas and providing an accessible central view of your team’s optimisation strategies.
  • Give credit where it’s due by attributing authorship within the compound registry, so you can acknowledge the key contributors to each publication and patent.
  • Complement your Electronic Lab Notebooks and Corporate Registration Systems with early idea tracking across your initial designs and screens.

Idea Tracker seamlessly integrates in StarDrop, so you can see information such as assigned chemist, date created, idea source, Idea Tracker ID and more.

Connect all your ideas and actions

Manage your in silico compound ideas within Idea Tracker’s central database repository. Track your designs with automatically-assigned unique identifier numbers for each structure. Key meta data is captured to create a permanent record for your ideas and their context. This includes any notes you wish to make.

The Idea Tracker database can be used to assist medicinal chemistry project management and track progress towards compound registration. It can integrate with your ELNs and CRSs to enable easy overview of the entire history of each of your projects.

Visualise your design journey

By combining Idea Tracker with StarDrop’s unique Card View® visualisation feature, you can see how your projects have progressed. Link new compound ideas to the earlier designs that sparked them, and gain a clear picture of your optimisation processes and iterative improvements. Use this information to guide your future design strategies.
