Digital chemistry pioneer DeepMatter has formed a partnership with US-based Waters Corporation to combine their software for the benefit of drug researchers worldwide.
Glasgow-based DeepMatter’s DigitalGlassware allows chemists to store and manage data from experiments on a cloud-based platform that can be accessed anywhere.
Water’ UNIFI Scientific Information System brings together various laboratory functions such as quality control, compliance and data gathering in one place.
The companies intend to integrate their systems this year to reduce drug development and get treatments to the market more quickly.
Chemists using UNIFI will be able to view and analyse and share data from their experiments via the DigitalGlassware portal.
Stephen McDonald, senior director at Waters Corporation, said: “The Waters’ UNIFI Scientific Information System is a platform that merges LC (liquid chromatography) and high-performance MS (mass spectrometry) data into a single solution that encompasses data acquisition, processing, visualization, reporting, and configurable compliance tools within a networked laboratory.
“It is because science is so complex and customer needs grow, that Waters Corporation developed the UNIFI API to allow creative developers like DeepMatter to build innovative software that not only interfaces with Waters’ informatics products but meets business critical needs.”
Mark Warne, CEO of DeepMatter Group, added: “We are pleased to collaborate with Waters Corporation, the world’s leading specialty measurement company, significantly increasing the scope of our DigitalGlassware for the benefit of our customers.
“The integration of our two platforms will enable the flow of data from the Waters’ platform into DigitalGlassware, providing for enhanced sharing and analysis capabilities and significantly enhanced workflows.”
