Our core business lies in applying the tools of Bioinformatics and Data Management to help drive research and development in Biotechnology companies.
Over the years we have worked with a range of companies with wide variety of research programs. We understand molecular and cell biology and, just as important, we understand the business needs of our clients.
We can work with you to design data management solutions that meet the needs of your staff, not just in the lab but also in business development and your IP group. We combine that understanding with first-class technical excellence in writing software, building databases and delivering effective user interfaces.
The details of our work with Biotech clients are obviously confidential. This makes it difficult to demonstrate the quality of service that we provide. We are happy to connect you with recent clients that can provide references.
We are always interested in talking to new clients so please Contact Us and talk to us about your needs.
