research center">Fundación MEDINA has emerged from the Merck Sharp and Dohme (MSD) Basic Research Center in Madrid and houses comprehensive microbial collections and natural products libraries as well as a compound profiling platform for the identification of potential risks in cardiovascular safety and drug-drug interactions. Consequently, the MEDINA research teams need to master a multitude of screening technologies and set-up modifications on a daily basis, from anti-infective or biochemical inhibition assays to dose-response assay panels for the determination of potential compound risks.
"We received a clear vote from our users to go with Genedata," said Francisco Asensio, IT manager at Fundacion MEDINA. "The Screener system is unrivaled when it comes to the flexible and efficient integration of third-party infrastructure, and the easy templating for our complex assay setups impresses our screening teams just as much as it smoothes things out for our IT support people. As we inherited a large and disparate instrument park and built our entire organization from scratch, the need to align different technologies and research groups was a top priority."
"We are proud of our relationship with MEDINA," said Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata. "Screener is an exceptional product thanks to its ability to master the breadth and complexity of today's screening scenarios. Introducing this product to the thriving Spanish life science market and establishing our presence there is an exciting challenge for Genedata. We are looking forward to a dynamic partnership with Fundación MEDINA and growing our business in Spain."
