Platform enables consistent production of high-quality data and increases the pace of innovation at CROs and PROs
September 27, 2017
Genedata, a leading provider of advanced software solutions for R&D, today announced that Axxam has extended its licensing of Genedata Screener® as its collaborative research platform for data analysis of high-throughput screening, compound profiling, and safety screening campaigns. As an innovative Partner Research Organization (i-PRO), Axxam provides integrated discovery services for the whole life sciences industry. The Genedata Screener platform is used to streamline and standardize Axxam screening workflows, and Axxam has successfully extended its use of Genedata Screener as a collaboration platform with its many biopharma clients and partners.
Genedata Screener: Competitive Edge for CROs and PROs
Contract Research Organizations (CROs) and PROs such as Axxam benefit from the increased outsourcing of discovery services by bio-pharmaceutical companies. To remain competitive, these organizations always look for ways to quicken the pace of service delivery and provide value-added service offerings. Genedata Screener, used by the majority of the world’s top bio-pharmas, delivers on both fronts and enables PROs to:
• Reduce data analysis processing times by orders of magnitude compared to other software packages
• Standardize experimental workflows to improve consistency and reduce overhead and costs
• Streamline collaboration and data exchange processes with pharma clients
• Support compliance with their pharma clients’ stringent QC requirements
• Deliver high-value offerings based on best-practice data analysis
• Introduce innovative screening technologies to their service portfolio
“Since 2008, we have been using Genedata Screener for high throughput screening programs,” says Dr. Stefan Lohmer, CEO of Axxam. “The platform is integral to all our screening service offerings and provides everything our customers are looking for in terms of data comparability, traceability, and quality of results.”
Web-based and cloud-ready, Genedata Screener gives Axxam a collaborative platform that simplifies data- and result-sharing. It supports different collaboration models between i-PROs and pharmaceutical companies, such as multi-tiered and peer-to-peer, which empowers new approaches to drug discovery.
“The cost savings, productivity gains, and increased opportunities for innovative R&D are driving the increased adoption of Genedata Screener by the world’s leading PROs,” noted Dr. Othmar Pfannes. “We are committed to supporting PROs and their clients in their collaborations to make biopharmaceutical R&D processes more efficient.”
