News May 14, 2013
Scale-up Systems Ltd. announced it has entered into a multi-year agreement with ScienView Co. Ltd. to provide DynoChem® software, training and process development support services to the Chinese pharmaceutical industry.
The motivation behind the agreement is to provide a dedicated local presence to help Chinese users to obtain maximum value from DynoChem’s tools. The initial team in the Beijing and Shanghai offices will be led by Dr. Jinjun Wang for Training & Technical Support and Jack Ma on the Business side.
According to Scale-up Systems CEO Dr. Joe Hannon, “We have been looking for a partner in China that, like our company, specialises in working with and understands the needs of the pharma and life sciences industry. We are therefore delighted to be working with ScienView.”
Scale-up Systems COO Dr. Steve Hearn said “What made ScienView stand out to us was the value it placed on hiring high quality training and support staff across multiple domains.”
ScienView’s Vice President of Informatics Services, Dr. Zhen Wang stated, “Many of our clients are pharmaceutical, chemical or CRO companies, and they are delighted to know that DynoChem will be provided to them along with our top-quality support. With the rapidly increasing R&D investments in China, businesses here also face significant challenges on managing costs and reducing pollution. DynoChem is an excellent tool to help them achieve these goals and is complementary to our products and services.”
Jack Ma, Business Development Manager for ScienView, added that “as the founder of the Shanghai Scientific Informatics Salon, a technical networking forum for big pharma, CRO and chemical companies as well as academics, ScienView finds that scientists and engineers here are very interested in new techniques and tools that can be applied successfully to their work and can be effectively supported by a local team.”
As electronics become smaller and faster, the adoption of "wearables", like smart watches, has increased. However, like regular computers, wearables are vulnerable to conventional hacking. What if we could use the human body itself to transfer and collect information? This area of research is known as human body communication (HBC).
