During the past twelve months Genedata Screener has provided computational support throughout a complete screening cycle at Chugai. Beginning with assay optimization and followed by primary and validation screening phases, Screener has enhanced Chugai’s search for active compounds with more robust measures for biological effects within the screening cascade.
Genedata’s computational scientists in Japan, based in Tokyo, have integrated Genedata Screener with research infrastructure at Chugai. It has been connected to Chugai’s screening platforms and result databases, providing data quality assurance and automating the analysis process from the plate readers all the way to the corporate databases.
Chugai’s screening experts use the AssayAnalyzer module to gain an overview of data quality for entire screening campaigns. Genedata’s Condoseo module is used to estimate the potency of compounds screened at multiple concentrations in the validation screening phase.
Actions speak louder than words
Genedata’s collaboration with Chugai began with a case study performed on data generated at Chugai’s research facilities in Kamkura, near Tokyo. Genedata analyzed a complete data set composed of primary and validation screening data, and presented the results to Chugai’s scientists.
The case study demonstrated the speed and efficiency of Genedata’s computational approach to screening analysis. “Data visualization and data quality assurance were key drivers behind choosing Genedata’s solution”, explained Hiroki Takaya, Group Manager, Pharmaceutical Technology Department, Chugai Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.
This is Genedata Screener’s first collaboration in Japan. “We are strengthening our customer base internationally and our success with Chugai validates our approach to achieving close collaboration with customers on a global scale”, said Dr. Stephan Heyse, Head of Genedata Screener, Genedata AG.

New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality
19.10.2016 | University of Waterloo
Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
