UCB uses Dotmatics intelligence tool

Dotmatics, a provider of informatics for pharma, biotech, chemical, agrochemical and academic industries, has announced that UCB has deployed Vortex, an scientific intelligence tool, to enhance its data analysis and visualisation capabilities. The company says this will directly support drug research and development efforts.

Vortex provides an intuitive and versatile approach to the analysis and visualisation of extensive amounts of scientific data, providing users with the ideal tools to make decisions and reach conclusions faster, the company says.

With an interactive dashboard, Vortex allows the manipulation of millions of data points including chemical structures, in a simple computer at a record speed. Vortex connects terabytes of disparate data coming from multiple data sources, giving scientists a holistic view of the information. It also contains a toolset of interactive plots, algorithms and tables that enable scientists to effortlessly harness the knowledge hidden behind the mountain of data.

'We have used Dotmatics Browser for a number of years now and it is a central component in chemical query and interrogation,' said Phil Scordis, head of informatics at UCB. 'The Vortex toolkit significantly expands our informatics system. It offers us the ability to deliver enhanced analytical capabilities to end users and extends UCB’s data visualisation environment.'
