Partnership to bring advanced graphics processing for pre-clinical imaging

Share this on social media:

Numira Biosciences and Penguin Computing have announced a formal partnership to bring graphics-intense data on-demand to life sciences customers. A convergence of technologies from Penguin Computing's POD, Numira Biosciences’ AltaPortal product and Nvidia’s GPU technology, this platform will deliver advanced pre-clinical imaging services to researchers at pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies worldwide.

AltaPortal provides a secure web interface for managing projects and exploring datasets, media and documents. By leveraging POD, Penguin Computing's HPC as a Service platform, AltaPortal will enable researchers to interactively navigate rich 3D data from microCT scans with customised overlaid analytics. The data will be delivered as a media stream to the client's web browser, eliminating the need to transfer large and potentially proprietary datasets over networks, and allowing them to be secured in a central location.
