San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 14, 2005 -
Biotrue today announced the commercial availability of its Collaborative Data Management System (CDMS) for Apples Mac OS X Server. The CDMS is an effective, easy-to-use solution to the data management challenges presented by leading-edge life sciences research.
The CDMS allows biomedical researchers to store, manage, protect, retrieve and share data from practically any modern instrument system or computer workstation. Biotrues intuitive and convenient browser-accessed, cross-platform system improves researchers productivity, speeding research progress in both academic and commercial laboratories.
While the National Institutes of Health supported the development of the CDMS as a cost-effective solution on Linux, scientists have long preferred the Mac platform, said Antony Chiang, Biotrues co-founder and CEO. The powerful combination of our CDMS running on Mac OS X Server allows scientists to focus on research and development, instead of looking for data and managing servers.
Apple has a strong presence in the science and biotech industries and researchers are increasingly choosing the power, stability and ease-of-use of Mac OS X Server, said Ron Okamoto, Apples vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. Biotrues Collaborative Data Management System is an excellent example of an application that uses Apple innovation to advance scientific research.
Biotrue developed the CDMS in response to biomedical researchers needs. Scientists at globally prominent research facilities, including University of California, San Francisco, The J. David Gladstone Institutes, the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and San Francisco General Hospital, consulted in the development of the CDMS, participated as beta users and now use the CDMS in production. Current customers include laboratories at Bristol-Myers Squibb, Caltech, GlaxoSmithKline, Stanford University, UT Southwestern Medical Center
and additional labs at UCSF.
Biotrue develops affordable and effective solutions for managing the explosion of data in biomedical research. Biotrues premier data management product is the Collaborative Data Management System (CDMS). The CDMS is designed to simplify the capture, storage, and organization of all types of data, facilitate integration of raw data from instruments with analytical applications, and foster collaboration. Biotrue is based in San Francisco. For more information, visit http://www.biotrue.net.
