Arkivum has partnered with Thermo Fisher Scientific on managing data.

Thermo Fisher Scientific’s European customers will have another option to manage life science data that is compliant with regulatory and governance requirements.

Arkivum provides big data preservation and archiving of terabytes or petabytes of data for varied retention periods.

Guy Yaniv, CEO of Arkivum, said compliance with regulatory requirements and internal best practices is a major and growing challenge.

“The life sciences industry is a key driver of big data applications, from molecular medicine to clinical trials,” he said.

“Just storing data is no longer sufficient. Via integrations with Thermo Fisher’s portfolio of advanced systems and services, Arkivum’s solutions can now enable life sciences organisations to focus on their core activities by providing end-to-end resilience, scaling and data sovereignty.”

Arkivum’s Archive as a Service is based on digital archive management technology developed in the AVATAR-m project.

The firm was spun out of the IT Innovation Centre at the University of Southampton.

“As an increasing amount of data is being generated in this era of precision medicine, it is clear that there is a need for bioinformatics and IT solutions designed to ensure secure data governance,” said Enzo Razzoli, leader of field services and support for Thermo Fisher Scientific.

“To that end, we are continually looking ahead in the interest of being in position to provide our customers with the most advanced tools, including new approaches to managing information that is compliant with regional regulatory agencies.”
