Genedata Announces Expanded Licensing Agreement with AstraZeneca to Digitalize Screening Operations Globally with Genedata Screener

Genedata, a leading provider of enterprise software solutions for biopharma R&D, announced an expanded licensing agreement with AstraZeneca for Genedata Screener which will support the company’s aim to digitalize and automate its screening processes. The broad adoption of the platform will enable AstraZeneca’s research labs in Europe and North America to further automate routine in-vitro testing, with an increasing focus on biotherapeutics and specialized modalities such as PROTACs and CRISPR.

Genedata Screener consolidates data management and analysis for all screening and assay development operations. It minimizes maintenance costs while continually evolving to support customers’ most recent screening technologies and assay designs.

“The Genedata Screener platform enables us to digitalize and harmonize assay data management, analysis, and reporting across a range of therapeutic modalities,” said Jon Wingfield, principal scientist, Discovery Sciences, R&D, AstraZeneca. “It captures and secures raw experimental data in a central repository, analyses them using standardized workflows, automatically annotates them, and provides access to those results to AstraZeneca researchers.”

The expanded licensing of Genedata Screener by AstraZeneca continues a successful collaboration between the two companies spanning ten years, driving innovation and increasing the efficiency of drug discovery processes. Automating complex assay data analysis workflows to deliver high-quality results in real-time, Genedata Screener was initially used by AstraZeneca during early-stage lead discovery only. Today, the platform is used further downstream in R&D and is widely used in specialized screening workflows in therapeutic areas such as oncology, cardiovascular, respiratory and immunology diseases.
