Waters joins BioIT Alliance

Waters : 03 September, 2008  (Company News)
Waters has joined the BioIT Alliance, an initiative spearheaded by Microsoft involving more than 80 pharmaceutical, biotech, laboratory instrument and software companies working together to realise the potential of personalised medicine.
Waters Informatics Business will work with industry leaders to develop standardised conventions for sharing scientific data based on Microsoft technology.

“Having implemented Waters NuGenesis Scientific Data Management System (SDMS) in laboratories all over the world, Waters is uniquely positioned to contribute to the BioIT Alliance because we understand how effective laboratories collect, manage and share scientific data,” said Phil Kilby, senior manager, Informatics Business and Partnership Development for the Waters Division. “Waters core informatics strategy promotes openness and interoperability. This basic philosophy aligns perfectively with the BioIT’s goals of improving information management to better connect scientific research to individual healthcare.”

The BioIT Alliance explores new ways to share complex scientific data and speed the pace of discovery in the life sciences, abbreviating the time between discovery of new biological data and the application of that knowledge to human health. It brings together science and technology leaders to consider innovative ways to address the challenges of integration, collaboration and knowledge management that cannot be solved by any single company. Members use Microsoft technologies to reduce costs and streamline research by advocating for and creating IT solutions intended to standardize practices for data capture, archiving, and dissemination.

'By welcoming Waters to the BioIT Alliance, we are partnering with a company that understands the information management needs of the laboratory,' said Rudy Potenzone, worldwide industry technology strategist for Pharmaceuticals at Microsoft and BioIT Alliance Coordinator. 'We rely on member companies to advance the state-of-the-art in BioIT by coordinating proof-of-concept applications that illustrate the use of Microsoft IT technology in solving critical problems for life sciences companies. We look forward to Waters contributions to this effort.'
