Orion Pharmaceuticals Implements Genedata Biologics to Support New Large-Molecule R&D Initiative

Genedata Biologics to accelerate antibody discovery and streamline R&D operations at Finland’s largest biopharma company

Basel, Switzerland, September 11, 2019

Genedata, the leading provider of enterprise software solutions for biopharmaceutical R&D, today announced Orion Pharma, a globally operating Finnish pharmaceutical company, has licensed Genedata Biologics® to support their R&D in the areas of oncology, the central nervous system, and other medical indications. 

“As part of our strategy to expand our biopharmaceutical R&D operations, we are implementing Genedata as our central workflow backbone to streamline our large-molecule R&D processes,” said Dr. Tim Holmström, Head of Biologics at Orion Pharma. “Genedata Biologics was the obvious choice because it is a proven, off-the-shelf enterprise platform that can be rapidly deployed across our organization. Also, collaborating with CROs is a key part of our strategy, so we require an open and scalable system able to capture and integrate all data generated by our CRO network. Finally, Genedata’s offering of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) was an additional plus because we wanted a self-maintaining model that provides regular upgrades of new, innovative functionalities.”

Genedata Biologics enables Orion scientists to easily capture, process, and interpret all large-molecule R&D data and facilitate the design of antibodies. Further, it integrates all assay and analytics data to enable a comprehensive assessment of all drug candidates. The platform helps eliminate error-prone manual processes by providing a robust, standardized data repository that can be integrated with laboratory instrumentation. All molecule, sample, assay and analytics data, including developability and manufacturability data, are managed within one fully integrated system and are shared between different project teams and sites. The platform facilitates systematic and transparent decision-making to select drug candidates to be progressed through the development pipeline.

“We are very pleased that Orion, an innovative R&D-based pharmaceutical company, has selected Genedata Biologics as their workhorse platform for their biopharma R&D operations. By providing Orion with a backbone that covers their entire discovery pipeline in a single system, we help to increase the efficiency of their R&D processes and speed up decision making,” said Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata. “Our technology, combined with Orion’s unique scientific approach, will bring cutting-edge therapeutics to patients faster and help them live better and longer lives.”
