Dotmatics suite chosen for pharma research

Dotmatics, a provider of scientific information management, has announced that Grünenthal, a pharmaceutical company with headquarters in Germany, has selected its suite of enterprise informatics products.

Dotmatics’ Vortex is a visualisation and analytics platform for scientific data. It includes the ability to create and manipulate plots, calculate properties and filter as well as profile compounds.

Browser is a flexible query and visualisation tool for biological and chemical datasets alike, allowing the search of multiple data formats and includes a variety of reporting tools. Both tools are designed to facilitate the discovery process, thus increasing the overall output of research organisations.

'In 2010, we started a detailed evaluation of various informatics solutions that would provide us with optimal support to query, report, and analyse our complex chemical and biological data. The powerful interplay between Browser’s ability to query and retrieve information and Vortex’ data analysis, visualisation, and reporting proved to be the most flexible solution for supporting our multidisciplinary project teams,' said Henning Steinhagen, Dotmatics' senior vice president for global drug discovery.
