CDD Vault Feature Reviews

20 reviewers had the following to say about CDD Vault's features:

Stéphane D.

CDD Is an ideally suited scientific database management system for our start-up biotech

2018-02-04

Excellent database management system Web-based platform for rapid data analysis and sharing Fast evaluation of new design ideas Easy export to specialized data visualization applications

Pros

Its intuitive interface requires a minimal learning curve to register compounds, generate assay curve fittings, and produce useful data reports. Numerous built-in options allow additional customization to your projects or your organization.

Cons

One function that we would really benefit from is a temporary "working space", where data could be reviewed and analyzed by the uploading scientist prior to publishing to the main vault for all collaborators to see and use.

As a bioinformatician scientist, I find this tool very useful.

2018-02-13

Pros

PDB, Chemogenomics databases assists sometimes in first-step hits characterization.

Cons

The QC process currently only provide several reports, but I think that professional tools that enables to search the database directly could be better.

Ideal solution for small companies

2019-09-19

I was an early contributor to the CDD public databases and I'm delighted to see how CDD has progressed and become an invaluable part of my current company's work.

Pros

No need to get into the weeds of cheminformatics Integration with other software: not only is exporting to spreadsheets easy but the API interface with open source DataWarrior provides high-powered data and chemical structure analysis.

Cons

What's not to like? It could only be better if it were free.

We've used CDD for close to a decade, and plan to keep using it for at least the next decade!

2018-02-09

We use CDD for most of our compound and data management.

Pros

- Very easy to use - Very reasonably priced - Continuously being improved, with new features regularly added - Phenomenal customer support, for both minor issues as well as more complicated custom requests

Cons

CDD does not have the flexibility and features of some other platforms that cost considerably more, but given the ease of use, the price, and the customer support, this is a fantastic tool.

A No-Brainer for small drug discovery labs

2019-03-05

To date, we're starting to populate the database with our bio data and are just beginning to use the data mining tools.

Pros

It's hard to imagine a more cost-efficient way to handle chemical inventory, in-house and store bought, and biological data.

Cons

There a few interface conventions that take a little time to get used to.

CDD Vault Review

2019-03-06

Overall, this software has proven to be a valuable tool for compiling compound rich data in a very accessible way.

Pros

They are constantly adding new features including a Bioassay database and Electronic Lab Notebook.

Cons

Like all chemical registries, data needs to be organized or formatted a certain way for optimal use.

I use the CDD Vault for our data management in our academic drug discovery lab.

2018-01-11

Pros

It's a very cost effective way to recapitulate industrial-style databases in a smaller environment.

Cons

I'd love for there to be a mobile app! Frequently I'm in a meeting or on the road, and want to quickly look something up.

CDD gets high marks for design, ease of use, functionality and reliability as a platform

2018-01-11

Pros

Loading data into the system is quite easy and reliable with "error" and "warning" messages which are descriptive.

Cons

Ultimately this can be a bit cumbersome as you can either update in the CDD interface which is not quite perfect for editing this data OR you can reload the data.

I have been extremely pleased with CDD. Makes it easy to manage and analyze data on our compounds.

2018-02-08

Pros

My company uses CDD for our chemical registration, as our database, for data analysis, and some data processing.

Cons

One possible con - for some compounds in the database, I have attempted to alter the orientation the molecule is displayed in, but it hasn't worked.

2019-08-12

Pros

CDD Vault's technology enables easy data-sharing between chemistry and biology so cross-discipline discussions become clear and productive.

Cons

I haven't found an easy way to format data from our plate reader for upload to the vault, but I bet if I contacted support they would have a few recommendations.

Nice to centralize data

2020-07-08

The customer service is very good if you have an issue they will work on it and try to solve or imporve the software very quickly.

Pros

The fact that it allows to centralize data and share them is good.

Cons

It takes a while to be able to use it correctly. Graph don't have the same quality and cannot be customized as what you can do using other software like Prism. This is not the kind of graph that you can publish.

A small chemistry-based company working with biology-based collaborators on drug discovery programs

2018-03-01

Excellent product for collecting, organizing and analyzing all program data - compound and related biological data .

Pros

It is an excellent product for collecting, organizing and analyzing all program data - compound and related biological data

Cons

The only significant deficiency of the software, relative to more expensive LIMS-based systems is the ability generate barcodes and link to barcode readers
