Dotmatics’ platform to support internal and external collaborative research at C4X Discovery
Bishops Stortford, UK. Dotmatics, the leading provider of scientific informatics solutions and services, announced today that after an exhaustive evaluation process, C4X Discovery has selected the Dotmatics Platform for its scientific data management and collaboration hub. C4X Discovery is focused on improving the efficiency and productivity of drug discovery and design through the use of NMR-based technology. The implementation of the Dotmatics Platform will facilitate their assay and ‘meta’ data management and analysis.
C4X Discovery uses NMR to determine the dynamic 3D-conformations of biologically relevant molecules in solution. This simplifies rational drug discovery by complementing protein structure elucidation and/or computational chemistry workflows. C4X Discovery will use the Dotmatics Platform to store, analyse and manage its chemical and biology data. Register will be used to record samples and associated information while Studies will be the main hub for assay design, capture, validation and analysis. The powerful combination of web-based tools Browser and Vortex will be used to rapidly access information in real time, find trends and thus make real time decisions. The easy accessibility and high security of Dotmatics’ cloud-based solutions provides C4X Discovery with a collaborative environment in which to share information internally, as well as with external partners from Academia and other Pharmaceutical and Biotech organisations.
“We look forward to working with Dotmatics. Their informatics solutions significantly enhance our ability to maximise the value of our technology platform and our portfolio,” said Piers Morgan, CEO of C4X Discovery.
“C4X Discovery has a very interesting and novel approach to rational drug discovery and we are delighted to provide the informatics infrastructure to support their research,” said Dr Stephen Gallagher, CEO of Dotmatics. “This deployment is testimony to the ability of our Platform to adapt to different workflows and deliver immediate value to our customers.”

About C4X Discovery Holdings plc:
C4XD is a Manchester-based company focused on optimising drug discovery and design. It was founded in 2008 as a spin-out from the University of Manchester. The company uses its NMR-based technology to solve the dynamic 3D structures of a broad range of biomolecules, including peptides, cofactors, oligonucleotides and carbohydrates. Since C4XD’s NMR technology shows what shapes active molecules prefer to adopt, it provides high-quality templates for drug discovery and design, and valuable information for drug candidate optimisation. In addition, the data is generated faster and more reliably than standard techniques such as X-ray co-crystallography or molecular modelling. C4XD is using its technology in collaboration with the pharmaceutical industry and to build its own proprietary pipeline of high-value therapeutic candidates.
