Genedata, leading provider of biopharma enterprise software solutions, and SCIEX, a global leader in life science analytical technologies, have entered into a strategic partnership to develop new software solutions for the biopharmaceutical mass spectrometry market. The goal of this partnership is to jointly innovate new workflows that leverage the proven Genedata Expressionist enterprise software platform and the analytical power of new SCIEX hardware such as the ZenoTOF 7600 system. This smart integration of software and hardware will allow biopharma customers to characterize progressively more complex molecules with increased speed and confidence, ultimately allowing them to accelerate the development of life-changing drugs.

“Genedata Expressionist has become the software solution of choice for the characterization and quality monitoring of innovative biotherapeutics and related applications such as host cell protein analysis at many of the world’s leading biopharma organizations”, stated Othmar Pfannes, Ph.D., CEO of Genedata. “While we remain fully committed to supporting all instrument vendors, partnering at a strategic level is a logical next step to deliver tomorrow’s technology sooner to our joint customers. This will ultimately accelerate discovery, development, and commercialization of novel biopharmaceuticals, while reducing costs by streamlining and automating complex analytical processes.”

“Our customers tell us that the future of biotherapeutics lies in the development of next-generation therapies such as mAb variants, including multi-specific antibodies,” said Mani Krishnan, Vice President, and General Manager, CE & Biopharma, at SCIEX. “However, they also tell us the complexity of these molecules presents a significant characterization challenge in both analytics and data processing. This strategic partnership with Genedata will enable the development of customized data processing workflows to address key customer challenges, so that therapies can progress through the development pipeline faster.”

SCIEX delivers solutions for the precision detection and quantification of molecules, empowering our customers to protect and advance the wellness and safety of all.
