NEW YORK, July 20 – Informatics software provider Scimagix said this week that it had raised $25 million in a third found of private financing.
Dresdner Kleinwort Capital and EuclidSR Partners led the financing round. Tullis-Dickerson, Invesco, Future Capital, and IngleWood Ventures also participated in the financing round. Daniel Green, a director at Dresdner Kleinwort Capital, and Barbara Dalton, a partner at EuclidSR Partners, will take seats on the company’s board of directors.
The company will use the current round of funding to further develop its Scientific Image Management System, which can store, annotate, retrieve, and mine images from different types of experiments.
The company estimated that some 70 percent of experimental data is image-based, as opposed to numbers or text.
Scimagix of Redwood Shores, Calif., is also developing new applications for analyzing and mining different types of images. For instance, its ProteinMine software is designed to look for protein pattern in 2-D gels. The software was jointly developed with Pfizer Global R&D.
