Entigen Hires Dot Com Exec as Vice President of Engineering

NEW YORK, June 11 - Online bioinformatics services provider Entigen has hired John Sadler, formerly chief technology officer at, to the position of senior vice president of engineering, the company said Monday. 

Sadler will lead the Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company's effort to combine its database integration platform, called ADAAPT, with its online bioinformatics workspace, known as BioNavigator, according to a statement.

At, Sadler helped develop business-to-business services for medical imaging professionals, prior to the company's purchase by Eastman Kodak in November 2000. Previously, Sadler served as manager of informatics, software, and systems at Agilent Technologies. 

"John brings six years of innovative life science informatics product development experience to the organization," Howard Goldstein, Entigen's president, said in a statement. "In addition, John's twenty years of experience working with novel software systems ranging from personal to enterprise level solutions will be a great addition to our management expertise."

Entigen was formed in December 2000 from the merger of eBioinformatics, a provider of online software tools for life science data analysis, and Empatheon, developer of ADAAPT (Advanced Dynamic Access, Analysis, and Personalization Technology), a Java-based technology for accessing multiple types of biological data.
