ChemAxon and Keymodule Report Integration of CLiDE OCSR

May 21, 2014

ChemAxon, a company that provides chemistry software solutions and consulting services for life science research, and Keymodule, a provider of chemical structure based data mining solutions, recently announced the integration of the CLiDE OCSR software within ChemAxon's technology and the rights to sell CLiDE.

In a release, ChemAxon said it has extensive capabilities for extracting and working with structures from English, Chinese and Japanese text documents. These text mining capabilities are implemented throughout ChemAxon's products; like JChem for Office, Instant JChem and Marvin; as well as its text mining toolkits such as Document to Database to automatically extract chemistry from document archives. However, there is a significant amount of chemistry in documents presented in structure images. The addition of CLiDE for structure recognition from structure images, completes ChemAxon's capabilities and enables users to gain value from chemistry in any document or archive.

ChemAxon said CLiDE provides a "fast and accurate" (98 percent in some test cases), technology for the extraction of chemical structures from PDF, MS Office and image files, including journal publications, internal documents and patents. A key feature is the ability to flag potential errors at the individual structure level to facilitate manual correction.

By integrating CLiDE alongside ChemAxon's text extraction technology, enterprises can now build automated systems for the routine mining of chemistry in repositories and information systems and for research chemists, a way to extract and use chemistry in day to day documents through ChemAxon's research tools: Marvin, JChem for Office, Instant JChem, Plexus and JChem for SharePoint.

ChemAxon is privately owned with European headquarters in Budapest, U.S. East Coast headquarters in Cambridge, Mass., and sales and support offices in Europe, Japan and across North America.
