Quantum Event

Our flagship product "Schrondinger" is a molecular viewer, to view the electron-probability distribution regions around molecules. We believe that this approach is better than the standard viewers which look at molecules in the solvent accessible surface because surfaces are not always hard as implied by a surface model. In fact the surfaces are very soft. This insight is meaningful for scientists interested in lingand-lingand docking studies. This viewer is integrated with "Crystal Eyes", a set of $100 glasses which shutter one lens at every other frame displayed on the screen. For users lacking ""Crystal Eyes," we offer a simpler solution, using Red-Blue glasses which can be obtained from several vendors.

Our second product, "MLE-View" is a viewer based on Maximum Likelihood Estimation from Stochastic Probability theory. Basically, when viewing 2D gel analysis, a 2 images are compared for similarity. Most results rely on deterministic algorithms. MLE-View concedes that this is an indeterminate problem, and instead focuses on making comparisons based on fuzzy logic[1]. Hence, the answers one gets are not binary (Yes/No), but rather a measure of how close (a value between 0 and 1) are the two images. Once these measurements are obtained, on can view the images sorted by the closeness parameter.

Quantum Events is a software consultancy specializing in Computer Aided Design for Molecular Modeling.

We also perform customized integration with IBM’s database DB2 and Microsoft Sequel Server. Occasionally, one of your customers might already have spent $50K on IBM’s DB2 database, and might be financially restrained from switching to Oracle. In the next few years, this is going to become more of an issue because IBM is aggressively marketing in the Life Sciences marketplace. Walter Heger has worked at IBM in the Database Division working on Media Production Suite, a product which stores, indexes and retrieves huge archives from DB2. Our main customers were CNN and Sony.
