Autoscribe reports significant business growth
News May 06, 2013
Autoscribe, developer of the Matrix Gemini Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), is pleased to announce an excellent start to the year. The first quarter of 2013 has seen a 98% growth in business in the USA and 131% growth in the business booked in the UK as compared to the first quarter of 2012.
Autoscribe founder and Managing Director, John Boother, said: “Approximately 12 months ago Autoscribe invested in strengthening our marketing effort in the UK and USA. This has resulted in much more exposure in the marketplace via seminars, exhibitions, electronic bulletins and PR. This, together with enhancements to our web site, has resulted in an increase of enquiries of approximately 100% compared to April 2012. It is therefore no coincidence that we are also seeing substantial business growth figures.”
“What is even more encouraging is that this increase was due to a series of system orders and a significant increase in services including support agreements rather than one large contract”, he continued. “The business growth in the USA is particularly pleasing as 2013 is the second year of operation for Autoscribe Informatics, Inc. following the change from a distribution outlet. Looking to the future our order pipeline is very strong and hence I am confidently predicting sustained growth during 2013.”
Algorithm Speeds Up Medical Image Analysis 1000 TimesNews
Medical image registration is a common technique that involves overlaying two images, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, to compare and analyze anatomical differences in great detail. Researchers have described a machine-learning algorithm that can register brain scans and other 3-D images more than 1,000 times more quickly using novel learning techniques.
Antarctic Worm and Machine Learning Help Identify Cerebral Palsy EarlierNews
A research team has released a study in the peer-reviewed journal BMC Bioinformatics showing that DNA methylation patterns in circulating blood cells can be used to help identify spastic cerebral palsy (CP) patients. The technique which makes use of machine learning, data science and even analysis of Antarctic worms, raises hopes for earlier targeted CP therapies.
Towards Personalized Medicine: One Type of Data is Not EnoughNews
To understand the biology of diseased organs researchers use different types of molecular data. One of the biggest computational challenges at the moment is integrating these multiple data types. A new computational method jointly analyses different types of molecular data and disentangles the sources of disease variability to guide personalized treatment.READ MORE
