BOSTON, May 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — TetraScience, the R&D Data Cloud company, announced today that Biorep Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of scientific instruments that help pharmaceutical companies and leading universities research cures for Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, has joined the Tetra Partner Network. The partnership builds on a joint deployment of Biorep’s Islet Counter and the Tetra Data Platform at a global pharmaceutical company, which is now utilizing the implementation as its worldwide standard for stem cell counting.
“We are thrilled to formalize our partnership with Biorep Technologies, whose premier products are used globally to advance research into diabetes,” said Simon Meffan-Main, Ph.D., Vice President, Tetra Partner Network. “By integrating Biorep’s instruments with the Tetra Data Platform, together we are helping researchers maximize the value of scientific data to increase understanding of the underlying causes of diabetes which affects more than 422 million people globally and is the 9th leading cause of death.”
Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs either when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. Biorep’s product suite, installed at more than 440 customer sites globally, pioneers industry-wide research to gain insights into stem cells as a source of producing insulin. The company’s instruments streamline and automate the process of isolating islet cells from a donor pancreas, which is an essential part of diabetes research.
“By joining the Tetra Partner Network, Biorep will be able to help unlock the full value of scientific data across multiple sites where our products are used,” said Felipe Echeverri, CEO, Biorep. “Our core company philosophy centers in collaboration with researchers around the world. With TetraScience, our customers will be able to share scientific data that is accessible, engineered, actionable, and compliant, which is the core of efficient collaboration across labs to accomplish greater success for those living with diabetes.”
“Every partner added to the Tetra Partner Network creates value for customers,” explained Patrick Grady, TetraScience Chairman and CEO. “As partners and customers continue to accelerate adoption of our open platform, the entire life sciences industry works in lockstep, eliminating data silos and delivering unrestricted scientific data innovation.”
