Healthcare & Bioinformatics

Automate complexity and enable data driven discovery

One of the fastest growth areas for data generation is, without doubt, the life science and healthcare sector.

With the growth of precision medicine and biomarker driven drug development, bioinformatics and data analytics is now a critical component of the drug development pipeline. Analytics Engines XDP™ enables researchers to integrate the increasingly diverse datasets they are faced with and to automate and industrialise analytics pipelines while still enabling research environments for pipeline development. Our platform enables analytics to be carried out rapidly, reliably and at scale to enable data driven discovery.

Pipeline Automation

Pipeline Automation

Analytics Engines XDP™ is fundamentally optimised for bioinformatics analysis. We enable you to automate complex pipelines so routine analysis to be carried out in a reliable, repeatable, reproducible manner. Our platform uses a range of big data analytics tools and data stores optimized for the pipeline and takes advantage of scalable storage and processing to automatically take best advantage of the compute power available either in the cloud or on your own infrastructure.

Data integration

Data integration

The life science sector has seen a huge increase volume and variety of data. Research is now rarely based on single analyte approaches and increasingly focuses on RNA, DNA, protein, metabolite and other information. While data integration offers the possibility of much greater insight, analysts and bioinformaticians are finding themselves spending more time data wrangling than carrying out analysis. Analytics Engines XDP™ facilitates data integration through the use of a range of data stores and data virtualisation.

Data Management

Data Management

Analytics Engines XDP™ is a fully featured data platform that provides data management capabilities allowing you to capture and house your raw data, meta-data and interim analysis results. We provide a full audit trail of all analysis and the ability to step back to any part of the pipelines for modification without repetition of the whole process. We also provide comprehensive data management software allowing both scientists and technical staff to track, monitor and audit analytics pipelines.

Almac Diagnostics Case Study

Almac worked with Analytics Engines to migrate its proprietary processes and algorithms to Analytics Engine’s XDP™. The pipeline can now be set up to run with 15 minutes of hands on time and results returned within 3-4 hours.
