Bishop's Stortford, United Kingdom, January 15, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Dotmatics, a leading provider of scientific informatics solutions and services to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, is pleased to announce today that the Translational Drug Discovery Group at the University of Sussex has selected Dotmatics’ fully searchable and web-based Electronic Laboratory Notebook, Studies Notebook, to complement their existing Dotmatics data management platform. The Translational Drug Discovery group is a multidisciplinary research group with integrated teams of in vitro biologists and medicinal chemists. The group is undergoing a process of rapid expansion with a portfolio of projects from hit identification to lead optimisation and consequently generates a large volume of complex and diverse data.
Dotmatics’ Studies Notebook is a highly configurable and versatile Electronic Laboratory Notebook designed to cover all scientific disciplines. It is exceedingly effective in academic institutes as it facilitates the continuity of research across generations of researchers as well as the collaborative research of scientists working across multiple disciplines. “Incorporating the Dotmatics software suite into our projects has enabled us to work very effectively and to process and analyse data in a highly efficient manner,” said Simon Ward, Professor of Medicinal Chemistry & Director of Translational Drug Discovery Group.
“The recent addition of the Dotmatics Electronic Laboratory Notebook offers a fully optimised and perfectly integrated addition to our existing chemoinformatics platform,” said John Atack, Professor of Molecular Pharmacology & Director of Translational Drug Discovery Group. “In combination with Browser, Register and Vortex, Studies Notebook enables us to access all of our data in a single web-based platform and allows our scientists to streamline their data entry, triage and analysis thus improving the efficiency of our research.”
“The Translational Drug Discovery Group at the University of Sussex is expanding rapidly and as such required a scalable, integrated and optimised suite to capture their research whilst making the data readily accessible and searchable. The high level of customisation of Studies Notebook enables the group to share data with collaborators whilst keeping proprietary data secure,” added Dr Stephen Gallagher, CEO of Dotmatics.
