Record Breaking Month for Autoscribe
News May 18, 2012
Six new system orders were placed in the UK plus one significant upgrade and two further system orders were confirmed by the US subsidiary, Autoscribe informatics.
Interestingly the new system orders came from six different countries demonstrating the international position that Autoscribe has now in 2012.
The flexibility of the Matrix Gemini solution is demonstrated by the variety of markets from which the orders were received – medical devices, veterinary, electronics, animal feeds, fertilizer, hydraulic research, cancer diagnostics and polystyrene insulation.
Autoscribe’s Managing Director and founder John Boother said: “Previously our best ever was 4 systems in any four week period, so this is an excellent start to the New Year. We are obviously delighted and this shows that it is possible to be successful even in a generally cautious economy".
"I believe that our success can be attributed to a number of factors," he continued. "We have worked hard to reinforce our reputation for reliability in the provision of LIMS solutions in a number of different markets. However, the major factor is the new Matrix Gemini software that has enhanced the already excellent and unique configurability of our systems allowing us to precisely meet varied customer expectations without the need for custom coding”.
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
