Genedata, a leading provider of advanced software solutions for biopharma R&D, today announced that Pfizer Inc. has licensed the Genedata Bioprocess™ enterprise platform.
The integration of Genedata Bioprocess with Pfizer’s existing Genedata Biologics™ platform—in use since 2014—establishes a centralized data repository that can be accessed by both research and development units. Improving data tracking and analysis via integrated data collection and enhanced data association can potentially help streamline data-focused development.
"After conducting a pilot project to determine if Genedata Bioprocess had the potential to meet our requirements, we decided to move forward with its implementation,” said Dr. Sergio Rotstein, Director, Medicinal Sciences Business Technology, Pfizer.
“We are very pleased to see Pfizer adopting Genedata Bioprocess,” said Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata. “This validates our strategy of developing a fully integrated workflow management platform that facilitates seamless R to D handovers of development candidates, samples, and associated data. In addition, a shared platform across R&D leads to substantial efficiency gains and cost savings.”
Genedata Bioprocess is a first-in-class, off-the-shelf enterprise software solution that enables fully integrated workflow support for large-molecule development and CMC. It supports the development of more efficient manufacturing processes and can be operated in a stand-alone mode or fully integrated with Genedata Biologics, the market-leading workflow system for large-molecule discovery. Genedata Bioprocess is a modular system that supports the full process - from cell line development, upstream process development (USP), downstream process development (DSP) - to formulation and analytical development, as well as critical quality attribute assessment. The platform scales with highest data volumes and integrates directly with all relevant laboratory equipment, such as bioreactors and analytics devices. Genedata Bioprocess has been co-developed with major biopharmaceutical companies over the past five years.
