Dotmatics Limited, a leading provider of informatics solutions for pharma, biotech, chemical, agrochemical and academic industries, announced today that UCB have deployed Vortex, a premium scientific intelligence tool, to enhance and extend their data analysis and visualization capabilities which will directly support drug research and development efforts.
Vortex provides an intuitive and versatile approach to the analysis and visualization of extensive amounts of scientific data, providing users with the ideal tools to make decisions and reach conclusions faster. 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 visualization environment.”
