Bristol-Myers Licenses InforMax’s Software



ALLINGFORD, Conn.--Bristol-Myers Squibb has licensed InforMax’s Vector NTI Suite desktop sequence analysis and Dynamic License Server software. The drug company will install the products in its office here as well as at three sites in New Jersey: Hopewell, Lawrenceville, and Princeton. The Vector NTI package that Bristol-Myers licensed includes Vector NTI 5.5, AlignX, and BioPlot application programs, as well as shared database software for the desktop PC. Dynamic License Server will enable access to an unlimited number of PCs and the capacity to concurrently activate Vector NTI.

"Our Dynamic License Server option was designed for accounts such as Bristol-Myers Squibb," said Alex Titomirov, president and CEO of InforMax. "This floating license option will provide a multi-user laboratory with easy access to Vector NTI and optimize the total number of available licenses."
