TRIPOS EXPANDS PLATFORMS FOR SYBYL DISCOVERY SOFTWARE TO INCLUDE HP WORKSTATIONS & SERVERS.

Tripos Inc. (Nasdaq: TRPS) announced that it is working with Hewlett-Packard Co. to expand the range of operating systems and hardware platforms available to scientists involved in the design and discovery of new chemical entities. HP VISUALIZE workstations and HP 9000 Technical Servers will support the Tripos' SYBYL line of discovery software tools.

Widely recognized in the field of molecular informatics and design, Tripos provides a comprehensive integrated set of software tools for molecular design and analysis. HP provides leading-edge operating systems and hardware that are already in use by research teams for laboratory measurements and data management. Together, the two companies establish a complete computational solution for drug discovery that spans chemical design, laboratory testing, and informatics.

"Tripos' SYBYL software tools require high-performance graphics and computational capabilities that HP VISUALIZE workstations and HP 9000 Technical Servers deliver," says David Valenta, Global Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Solutions Market Development Manager for HP's Technical Computing Division. "In addition, because HP offers solutions on Linux, Windows NT and UNIX operating systems, customers have a breadth of choices in computing platforms."

Tripos' full range of software products, including ChemEnlighten for decision support on the corporate intranet and ALCHEMY 2000 for desktop modeling, will be demonstrated at the 219th American Chemical Society Spring Exposition in San Francisco, Calif. At the Moscone Convention Center, March 26-28, 2000. Tripos' SYBYL will be featured on the HP VISUALIZE workstation, which is part of HP's line of workstations that employ UNIX, Windows NT or Linux operating systems and the industry-leading fx line of OpenGL graphics cards. HP 9000 Technical Servers combine the 64-bit HP-UX 11 operating environment, the PA-8600 RISC architecture with 1.5MB of on-board cache, and multiprocessor capability.
