Philip Morris International GladiaTox
Philip Morris International (PMI) has launched GladiaTox, an open-source informatics product for high-content screening data in biomedical research. According to PMI, GladiaTox allows "robust and efficient storage, processing, and reporting of HCS data, in line with the landmark 21st Century Toxicology program." The firm's platform is an evolution of the ToxCast Pipeline created for the US Environmental Protection Agency. The solution can analyze disparate types of HCS data in an integrated fashion and supports the "3S" approach to biological understanding – "systematic, systemic, and systems," which looks at organisms in their entirety rather than specific organs in isolation. PMI developed GladiaTox in collaboration with Filer Consulting.
