Boehringer Ingelheim Selects Genedata Biologics as Antibody Discovery Workflow Platform
News Feb 19, 2015
Genedata has announced that Boehringer Ingelheim has chosen Genedata Biologics™ as their global biologics R&D workflow and data management platform. The Genedata Biologics platform will support multiple Boehringer Ingelheim R&D groups in the US and Europe, including Lead Identification and Screening, Lead Optimization and Engineering, and Protein Production groups across Boehringer Ingelheim's New Biological Entities (NBEs) centers.
"Our Biotherapeutics Research division required a central system to support the complex and interconnected workflows in our large-molecule discovery units," said Dr. Miguel Teodoro, Head of IT Research at Boehringer Ingelheim. "We undertook a thorough selection process to find the best antibody workflow platform and Genedata Biologics was the obvious choice. We believe Genedata Biologics will help us to accelerate our antibody discovery programs as we develop the next generation of biologics drugs."
Genedata Biologics streamlines biopharma discovery operations by integrating workflows and data from diverse research processes and antibody discovery platforms, such as phage and yeast display, hybridomas, and B-cells, as well as downstream expression, purification, and analytics.
Genedata Biologics reduces data capture and reporting time by 50% and significantly improves candidate quality through standardized and automated data integrity analysis. In addition, the system greatly increases experimental throughput by directly interfacing with laboratory automation instruments.
"We are excited that Boehringer Ingelheim, a global leader in biopharmaceuticals, has chosen Genedata Biologics for data management and processing to support their New Biological Entities units," said Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata. "This latest addition to the rapidly growing list of leading biopharmas partnering with Genedata proves again the value of our platform, which speeds up the discovery, optimization, and development of novel biopharmaceuticals. We are committed to continuing to expand the platform to meet the rapidly developing new requirements in this exciting field."
Researchers Awarded $28M for Illuminating Druggable Genome NIH GrantsNews
Researchers receive grants as part of the NIH program focused on experimental and informatics approaches to characterize understudied proteins from three gene families: ion channels, G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), and protein kinases.READ MORE
Algorithm Predicts Life Expectancy After Heart AttackNews
A new algorithm developed by UCLA researchers more accurately predicts which people will survive heart failure, and for how long, whether or not they receive a heart transplant. The algorithm would allow doctors to make more personalized assessments of people who are awaiting heart transplants, which in turn could enable health care providers to make better use of limited life-saving resources and potentially reduce health care costs.
Computation and Chemistry Combine to Create World-First Auxetic ProteinNews
A team of chemists at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) has now designed a two-dimensional protein crystal that toggles between states of varying porosity and density. This is a first in biomolecular design that combined experimental studies with computation done on supercomputers. The research, published in April 2018 in Nature Chemistry, could help create new materials for renewable energy, medicine, water purification, and more.
