Core Informatics: Unified Data Management Platform

CIO VendorJosh Geballe, CEO
In today’s digital era, pharmaceutical industry is constantly striving to discover more efficient and cost-effective ways to bring their products to the market. With an evolving landscape of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) for precision medicine and new data types such as protein structures and genetic sequences, the pace of scientific innovation has intensified making laboratory data management more challenging. Scientists need to deal with large amount of data that has to be analyzed. Robust analytics to capture relevant data and integration of new technology within existing laboratory environments, with systems supporting seamless communication and information exchange, are vital. Core Informatics provides tightly integrated, state-of-the art Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELN), and Scientific Data Management Software (SDMS) on their unified platform—Platform for Science (PFS).

The firm’s lab data management solutions are highly configurable, and are rapidly deployable in the cloud or on-premises to meet customer requirements accordingly. “Core Informatics is the first LIMS and ELN vendor to offer a validated cloud infrastructure for secure hosting of sensitive data,” says Josh Geballe, CEO, Core Informatics. The company leverages Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide flexible and scalable solutions to life science organizations.

Core Informatics’ collaborative and R&D platform, PFS, assists organizations in instrument integration and automated data capture. The platform also features Core Collaboration, a key offering from the company, for secure data exchange and storage across teams. The configured solution provides a ‘safe home’ for data partnerships, allowing shareable, discoverable, and auditable information to be accessed by different groups and tools. PFS as a next-generation informatics solution, reduces the time and resources necessary to configure and deploy LIMS, and ensures that any system deployed using the database is stable, scalable, extensible, and user-friendly. Additionally, if customers wish to add new capabilities to their instances of the Core platform, they can browse the Platform for Science Marketplace of applications.

Core SDMS is a critical part of the platform that enables organizations to capture raw instrument data generated in laboratories. The system features a library of file parsers, capturing the information from varied sources that invoke data analysis and reporting. The Core SDMS monitors folders on the enterprise’ network file system that are configured for automated data capture. “We can also facilitate deeper integration through APIs to further capture data directly from instruments,” says Anthony Uzzo, President, and Co-Founder of Core Informatics. For example, one biopharma company wanted to automate and manage its NGS workflows for greater control and efficiency in its precision medicine initiatives. The solution monitored and evaluated the throughput, effectiveness, and quality of sequencing workflows and outcomes.

Core Informatics works closely with customers to build laboratory data management solutions on the flexible PFS to cater to the specific needs of customers across markets and industries. Further, The Core team consults with customers to choose the exact apps and products that best fit their needs, and to design new frameworks for unique processes and workflows.

Since the inception, the company has been successfully assisting pharmaceutical companies in simplifying their research and data management operations adding value to their entire process chains. Moving ahead, to further serve the pharma world, Core Informatics has recently released two new genomics workflow applications into their product portfolio. The app provides additional research and technical capabilities for microarray genotyping and DNA sequencing techniques.
