January 30, 2013
BISHOPS STORTFORD, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dotmatics Limited, a leading provider of informatics services to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, today announced that Redx Pharma have licensed and deployed Dotmatics' entire suite of scientific informatics solutions. This deployment delivers an integrated system that improves access to data, allows the sharing of information and promotes collaboration across different research groups at Redx.
Redx develops new drug candidates across eleven different therapeutic classes using its Redox SwitchTM Platform. The company is undergoing a process of rapid expansion. This constant growth creates a dynamic research environment that requires an informatics platform able to hold increasing amounts of complex and diverse data. In addition, it has to be easy to use and intuitive in order to facilitate the quick and efficient adoption by users. Furthermore, the system has to prevent input errors and it has to be compliant with directives from regulatory authorities.
After extensive testing, the Dotmatics Platform proved to be the most flexible informatics system capable of integrating diverse discovery activities from chemistry to biology. The Dotmatics Platform provides Redx with comprehensive informatics solutions to successfully store, query, manage, visualise and analyse their two hundred families of compounds and all associated data.
Using Studies Notebook, chemists and biologists at Redx easily and securely store their structured and unstructured data in a single web-based system. Scientists are able to access their data faster, aggregate them in a single interface and create custom reports in a productive and efficient manner using Browser. Browser is a scalable and robust query and visualisation tool for biological and chemical datasets alike. Dotmatics' flagship solution Vortex is a world-class visualisation and analytics platform designed specifically to work with scientific data. Vortex provides scientists at Redx with an out-of the-box filtering, charting, plotting and chemically aware calculations engine, enabling scientists to evaluate large datasets in a rich, intuitive and flexible user interface.
Dotmatics CEO, Stephen Gallagher, PhD, said "We are delighted to be working with such a forward thinking organisation as Redx Pharma and we are looking forward to further collaboration with them as both companies continue to develop and move forward."
Dr Neil Murray, CEO of Redx Pharma, said: "Redx is a rapidly growing drug discovery and development company that was looking to install a single informatics platform solution that could address our needs as we grow. "We chose Dotmatics as we felt they provided the best balance of flexibility against range of capability."
Dotmatics has rapidly emerged as a preferred informatics supplier to many of the world's largest global Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology and Academic organisations.
