TetraScience and IDBS Partner to Connect Data in R&D

Boston, MA and Guildford, UK  — April 7, 2021 — TetraScience , the world’s first and only open R&D Data Cloud for scientific discovery, and IDBS, a leading R&D technology and solutions provider, announce a strategic partnership to integrate the IDBS E-WorkBookTM and Tetra Data Platform into a common ecosystem to provide end-to-end R&D data automation.

This partnership provides seamless connectivity between instrumentation and informatics solutions in life sciences R&D to enable the automatic collection, centralization, and harmonization of data in the Cloud. Users will benefit from bidirectional instrument control that streamlines workflows and enhances laboratory connectivity.

“E-WorkBook is a market-leading platform for the planning, execution, and reporting of scientific workflows across the R&D value chain. With over 30 years of expertise, IDBS understands the need for seamless integration of our platform within a customer’s ecosystem of laboratory instruments, informatics tools and data pipelines. However, it is no longer enough to simply improve laboratory efficiency or intra-lab collaboration; our customers are demanding easy access to well-managed and contextualized data to power advanced analytics that accelerate the pace of innovation. This partnership will dramatically improve systems’ interoperability and will offer the best possible digitization experience to mutual customers of IDBS and TetraScience”, notes Scott Weiss, VP of Product Strategy, IDBS.

This partnership will help save time in the lab, enabling scientists to focus more on drug discovery. TetraScience and IDBS are committed to creating FAIR data to encourage the growth of biopharma collaborations and innovations.

“As an open platform, TetraScience has built a large network of integrations, partners, and best-of-breed solutions to drive the future of life sciences R&D. We are committed to connecting every single data source and target in the biopharma R&D lab landscape, to accelerate innovation and scientific discovery,” says Siping “Spin” Wang, CTO and President of TetraScience. “We are delighted to welcome IDBS as a valued member of the Tetra Partner Network.”

“In order to unlock the potential of life science R&D labs and dramatically accelerate discovery, we must capitalize on the power of AI and data science. A precondition to enabling these capabilities is moving the industry away from a legacy data model of silos and point-to-point integrations, to a native and unified cloud-based data paradigm,” explains Patrick Grady, Chief Executive Officer, TetraScience. “Our partnership with IDBS is an example of what can now be done to enable the life sciences industry to accelerate discoveries that can help improve lives.”
