DiscoveryBioMed, ArtusLabs Partner for Image and Numerical Data Management

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – High-throughput screening services provider DiscoveryBioMed of Birmingham, Ala., said last week that it is partnering with ArtusLabs of Research Triangle Park, NC, to identify best management practices for image and numerical data management.

ArtusLabs' web-based platform Ensemble for Life Science will serve as the data-management platform in this partnership.

"In addition to its own internal drug discovery initiatives, DBM is currently working on behalf of more than 15 active cell engineering and drug discovery clients," DBM CEO Erik Schwiebert said in a statement. He said that Ensemble will add value to this client interaction.

"One of the benefits of Ensemble is the ability to automatically bring machine data from our 'robot' into the system using the mass importer," Tom Barr, DBM's chief operations officer and co-director said. "Once set up, the data is up-to-date, accessible by the project team and organized into the appropriate folder ... without me ever needing to touch it."
