Vitic Nexus


Vitic Nexus is the next generation chemical database and information management system, offering researchers and scientists rapid access to searchable toxicological information. Early review of Vitic Nexus is the quick, inexpensive way to identify potentially toxic chemicals, and therefore reject unsuitable drug candidates.

Vitic Nexus is your trusted toxicity expert and management system; containing data implemented by scientists at Lhasa Limited, who continually work on the toxicity database with current toxicological knowledge.


How Vitic Nexus Can Benefit You

Whether your industry is cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, or you are in academia, Vitic Nexus enables you to:

  • Evaluate the potential toxicity of existing or prospective chemicals through exploitation of large chemical libraries.
  • Make decisions about which chemicals are likely to have ‘more favourable’ toxic profiles when you do not have all the experimental information you would like to have about the toxicity of each chemical.
  • Carry out toxicity experiments on a large number of chemical candidates where you could save time and money by selecting those with the most favourable outlook.
  • Capture internal toxicity data and knowledge and make this information available to your colleagues.
  • Improve the properties of a chemical in the R&D pipeline by slightly redesigning its molecular structure.
  • Act as a toxicology training or learning tool by using the extensive data in the expertly curated database.

The database that is created and supplied by Lhasa Limited contains data from published sources and data donated by our member organisations. This data is collated, checked and verified by Lhasa scientists before being entered into the database. All entered data is subject to rigorous vetting.


How Vitic Nexus Works

Using the web-based user interface, you are able to build comprehensive queries enabling you to search the database to find pertinent information for your studies. In addition to standard text comparison, queries can take into account structural features, enriching the search and providing you with the most relevant information for your project. Queries can be compared to the expertly curated Lhasa database, or your own database that you have created using the schema editor and data entry functionality available in Vitic Nexus.

Vitic Nexus results can be displayed by means of a gallery view, providing primary focus on the structures returned from your query, or a grid view, with primary focus on the data.

Features of Vitic Nexus

Vitic Nexus has the following key features:

  • High quality, peer reviewed data - enabling you to investigate data and make informed decisions with confidence.
  • Public, proprietary and regulatory data sources - providing you with access to more data than if working from internal sources alone, time and cost savings can be made due to the ability to make more informed decisions early. 
  • Sophisticated search - you can build comprehensive queries, considering multiple search terms including structural, allowing quick retrieval of relevant information for use in projects and for development of (Q)SAR models.
  • Schema editor and data entry tools - provide you with the means to easily manage your in-house data and use historical knowledge to determine future research and development needs. 
  • Report customisation - a variety of report formats are available with customisation options available. Report types available currently include:
    • SDF
    • PDF
    • XML Spreadsheet
    • CSV 
  • Integration with Derek Nexus - for users holding a Derek Nexus licence, you can import your Derek Nexus results into Vitic Nexus to quickly gain an even broader depth of understanding.
