Our Solutions

Results

Platform optimization.

We optimized the computation of NeoProteomics platform to help seek better disease detection and diagnosis results.

Assistance with moving to cloud computing.

For the core analysis engine, we assisted the move to cloud computing and provided architectural guidance on managing distributed computation jobs efficiently.

Custom data visualization.

We created custom data visualizations for the desktop Java application merged into a single dashboard for better analysis practices and comparison results.

Cooperation Results

Well-built disease markers discovery.

The data visualization enabled NeoProteomics to image the results of each of their biomarker experiments - tests that help to drive the discovery of significant disease markers. 

More effective algorithm analysis and results.

Scientists could effectively analyze and compare the results of their algorithms during their discovery process with the collection of data visualizations consolidated into a single dashboard.

New opportunities discovered by the use of the markers.

These markers helped identify novel pathways and new drug targets, stratify patient populations, and, more importantly, better predict the most effective therapeutic response.
