FMC Corporation announced a collaboration with Optibrium. The agreement is part of FMC's strategic plan to accelerate the discovery and commercialization of FMC's pipeline. Expanding FMC's Discovery process to include Optibrium's innovative Augmented Chemistry AI technologies will help bring new solutions to growers faster.

Machine learning and AI methods will serve to identify promising compounds, optimize their properties and continue the company's focus on sustainable products. FMC will utilize Optibrium's Cerella and StarDrop technologies to further internal research and development. Cerella is an AI platform enhancing molecular discovery with deep learning, enabling more accurate predictions and better experimental prioritization to improve return on investment.

StarDrop complements this further through small molecule design and optimization, integrating with Cerella to leverage AI for improved data analysis in discovery.
