CIRCE (Spain/UK) is a biotechnology company that provides specialized services and high technological value to the Chemical, Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Industry, in the field of crystal engineering , using the most innovative , reliable and unique predictive technologies: Screening virtual co-crystals , and Polymorph Screening virtual and accelerated computing systems in the search for new drugs (Drug Discovery ).
Furthermore, we have CIRCE facilities with the most advanced techniques and instrumentation necessary for subsequent phases to virtual prediction : Experimental Screening , Physical Characterization , Thermal Stability studies as well as advice on intellectual property issues .
Products / Services , Areas of interest for future collaborations
In CIRCE through prediction combining virtual and experimental screening , we offer expert service and high added value that allows the discovery of new APIs , such as the optimization of existing ones. In CIRCE act as a CRO , integrating the R & D project of our customers.
CIRCE operates in two key areas :
1- crystalline engineering services : In CIRCE have innovative and unique prediction tools crystalline forms ( polymorphs and co-crystals ) and, through our virtual experimental approach , we seek and characterize new solid forms ( co-crystals , polymorphs and salts) of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs ) , our main competitive advantage being able to offer our customers an innovative and exclusive virtual prediction of co-crystals , developed by the R & D of the CIRCE .
The portfolio of services offered :
Virtual Screening of co-crystals and experimental .
Experimental virtual screening and polymorphs and salts
Characterization of new solid forms of APIs
Stability studies of API solid forms
2 - accelerated computing systems for drug discovery adaptable to different descriptors needed in finding patterns. Hardware adapted to their computers allows very rapid scanning of very large databases, increasing with one plate in at least 100 times the speed (compared to conventional systems) and may reach five plates 500 to multiply the speed of system. Besides reducing infrastructure needs (e. i mainfraim servers).
