PLUG IN. POWER UP.™ Scitara Corp. showcases its unique global partnership program at the Testa Challenge in Sweden
Marlborough, MA – Scitara Corp, the preeminent leader in laboratory digital transformation, has launched Scitara Connect™—a strategic partnership program that enables experts from a wide range of fields and companies to accelerate the pace of progress across the life sciences industries.
Led by Dave Levy, Scitara’s Head of Strategy and Partner Management, the program unites global technology leaders, cloud providers, industry experts and a host of specialists in a first-of-its-kind network committed to total lab systems integration. By promoting an environment in which instruments, applications, web-based services and informatics are all connected, Scitara Connect enables analytical labs to drive efficiency and profitability, optimize customer experience and effectively accelerate real-world results.
Scitara will showcase the partnership program at the upcoming Testa Challenge in Sweden.
“We’re proud to take our place among established world leaders in technology and information management,” said Mr. Levy, “and we’re excited to help deliver customer success.”
“This is a concept inspired from hackathons and open innovation concepts but applied in a bioprocess. We are inviting companies from the technology digital, and data segment to integrate, test and verify their innovations in a fully funded standard bioproduction workflow.” said Mr. Jesper Hedberg, Director of the Testa Center.
Behind it all is the company’s Scientific Integration Platform™ SIP™—a breakthrough, cloud-based platform that enables instrument and informatics vendors of all sizes to seamlessly integrate their products within any lab infrastructure, making it possible to reduce cost and develop inter-corporate strategies for uniting entire asset portfolios.
Independent and vendor-agnostic, the platform ushers in a new era of intelligence and automation that will allow analytical labs to unlock the power of data mobility, ensure end-to-end data integrity and accelerate scientific discovery.
“The SIP facilitates a fully connected laboratory, compliant data mobility and an in situ configurable platform, enabling companies to integrate any instrument, application, informatics platform or other resource regardless of vendor,” said Mr. Levy.
The news comes hard on the heels of last month’s announcement that Scitara closed its Series B round of funding at $15M, an investment reflective of the company’s industry-leading technology and ambitious plans for expansion.
