What we do
Platinum Informatics is a Dundee-based Life Sciences Informatics company. Incorporated in April 2018, we were created by a globally recognised scientist, Prof. Angus Lamond and his team, specialising in Quantitative Proteomics to meet the ‘big’ data challenges of operating modern laboratories efficiently.
Our informatics solution, Platinum Desimal, is an integrated suite designed for use by R&D laboratories focussed on early-stage drug discovery research. It is a performant end-to-end set of tools focussed on data collection, management, curation, analysis, and interrogation, with automating software to reduce time and errors to complete experiments significantly.
Our initial focus is on the application in early-stage drug, vaccine, and biomarker discovery in the growing area of precision medicine. Our informatics solution will accelerate the digital lab of the future, enabling new and remote ways of working which align with the way the world is moving.
Uniquely, we also have a contract research service, Platinum Discovery, which offers services from experimental design to insight delivery. With deep expertise in proteomics and access to one of the most extensive mass spectrometry facilities in the world, this enhanced service enables pharmaceutical and biotech companies to operate beyond their respective limited in-house facilities.
Our vision is to transform scientific experimentation by bringing the digital laboratory of the future to the research laboratories of today.
