Obtaining the Software

The FORECASTER and VIRTUAL CHEMIST Suites

The FORECASTER Suite (formerly known as the FITTED Suite) and the VIRTUAL CHEMIST Suite are distributed free to non-commercial organizations in return of bugs reporting and testing/validating studies.

In order to obtain any of these programs, we need to receive the license agreement and the information form duly signed and complete. After we receive the signed license agreement, you will be granted the permissions to the privileged download section.

academic license agreement.

The FORECASTER Web Platform

For more information about licensing options, research contracts or to obtain an evaluation version of the FORECASTER Web Platform, please contact us.

You can test the webserver version from the demo page here.

Currently the platform is being moved to a new server and no novel access can be provided. Come back in the next few weeks for updates.

The H-TEQ Program

The H-TEQ program is freely available here. By downloading and using this program, you agree with the terms and conditions described here.
