The Paterson Institute for Cancer Research have Licensed the Entire Dotmatics Informatics Suite

BISHOPS STORTFORD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 25, 2010) - Cutting edge informatics company Dotmatics Limited (Dotmatics) were selected by the Paterson Institute for Cancer Research (Paterson Institute) to provide a complete range of drug discovery informatics solutions. The Paterson Institute have licensed and implemented the entire Dotmatics software range including; Browser, Vortex, Studies, Register, Gateway, Pinpoint & Nucleus.

The Dotmatics suite will be used for all aspects of early stage drug discovery by providing integrated software from registration to reporting through data querying, data visualisation and assay management. The web-based deployment of the suite reduces IT overhead whilst providing unrivalled flexibility through its simple user interface.

Dr Allan Jordan, Head of Chemistry at The Paterson Institute said "We chose to implement the Dotmatics suite of applications in preference to solutions from other vendors because of the intuitive interface and close integration between data capture, retrieval, interrogation and analysis across both chemistry and biology. We were also impressed by the degree of configurability inherent within the system architecture. Our system went live in December 2009 and in the intervening time, we have been working closely with Dotmatics to customise and tailor the system to our specific requirements. We remain very impressed with both the quality and responsiveness of their support offering and look forward to a long-term working relationship."

Steve Gallagher, CEO of Dotmatics said "We are very excited to work with the Paterson Institute to create a fully integrated and highly efficient drug discovery platform. It's great to provide a complete informatics suite to an exciting institute and such a worthy cause."

The Paterson is a research institute within The University of Manchester, and is one of five research institutes core-funded by Cancer Research UK. It is a partner in the Manchester Cancer Research Centre (MCRC), whose goal is to become one of the world's leading cancer research centres. The MCRC brings together the cancer research activity in the city and was founded by The University of Manchester, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and Cancer Research UK.

Research at the Paterson Institute spans the whole spectrum of cancer research, from programmes investigating the molecular and cellular basis of cancer to those focused on translational research and the development of novel therapeutic approaches. Facilities include micro-arrays, advanced imaging, bioinformatics and state-of-the-art mass-spectrometry based proteomics. The Institute has over 400 postdoctoral scientists, clinical fellows, scientific officers, administrative and technical staff, postgraduate research students and visiting fellows.
