Scilligence Joins Accenture’s Life Sciences Research Platform Ecosystem to Help Drive Innovation in Scientific Research

CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, January 29, 2019 / — Scilligence, a provider of mobile cheminformatics and bioinformatics for the life sciences industry, has joined the Accenture research platform open partner ecosystem, which will allow for the integration of Scilligence’s informatics solutions. Scilligence’s proprietary technologies address three main areas of R&D informatics needs: knowledge management and collaboration; project, workflow, and material management; and knowledge mining of unstructured data.

The research platform is an open partner ecosystem designed to help independent software vendors (ISVs) and life sciences companies collaborate more effectively to speed up drug discovery initiatives and enhance patient outcomes. Accenture’s project has been developed in collaboration with Merck and Amazon Web Services to enhance innovation and collaboration between life science companies and software providers. Scilligence is one of the first ISVs and organizations to integrate its technology and content into Accenture’s research platform.

“The Accenture research platform delivers an exciting cloud-based ecosystem for life sciences R&D informatics. Scilligence is proud to contribute to this platform,” said Jinbo Lee, CSO and co-founder of Scilligence.

Life science companies – such as pharmas, biotechs, contract research organizations, and research institutions – with a common informatics platform will have the ability to share their data more effectively and efficiently through the platform’s open application programming interface. This allows researchers to quickly access and analyze data from multiple applications using a single interface in a secure and integrated environment.

Jay Grossman, L.A.’s Celebrity Dentist, Warns Patients of Colgate Toothpaste Ingredients

Dr. Jay Grossman, Celebrity Dentist

“The efficacy of its possible antimicrobial properties may be outweighed by its possible role in disrupting hormonal development.” – Dr. Jay Grossman

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, January 29, 2019 / — For Dr. Jay Grossman and his team at Concierge Dentistry, the mission is to deliver the finest dental care available. Using state-of-the-art dental technology, they provide modern imaging capabilities that allow their patients to clearly see the reasons for procedures and the intended results. They recognize that patients are individuals with different goals and needs, and they strive to provide a soothing and educational environment where extraordinary results are realized. However, the team is now warning against a product that could possibly be extremely detrimental to their patients’ health.

Recently, the FDA banned the anti-bacterial chemical “Triclosan” from soap. However, Dr. Grossman is adamant that the public isn’t quite safe yet. The chemical can still be found in many brands of toothpaste still sold on shelves today. The reasoning? Colgate Total convinced the FDA that the benefit of Triclosan in toothpaste outweighs any risks involved with using the product.

In an interview, Andrea Fisher, an FDA spokeswoman, said that “Triclosan has demonstrated to be an effective component in reducing plaque and gingivitis.” This information was discovered in a Colgate study conducted all the way back in 1997. Dr. Grossman disagrees with this assessment.

“It is in my opinion,” said Dr. Grossman, “that the efficacy of its possible antimicrobial properties may be outweighed by its possible role in disrupting hormonal development. Although the Colgate study sites a significant reduction in gingivitis, independent reviews, such as those done by the Cochrane group, state that the benefits may not be clinically significant.” Meanwhile, the potential health concerns of Triclosan have caused the FDA to list it as a “CEC,” a contaminant of emerging concern.

“As your dentist," Dr. Grossman continues, “I must state that my concern for a product that has such a classification, and until more research is done, you may want to think twice about using any products that contain Triclosan.”

No matter what the FDA rules, Dr. Grossman plans on always looking out for his patients’ health, and doing what he can to encourage healthy practices at Concierge. He is one of the few dental practitioners in the Brentwood area to use advanced dental laser technology for more comfortable dental care. And he’s also one of the very few Invisalign Elite Preferred Providers in the world. “We are happy to meet with you, offer you solutions and help you build the smile you have always wanted,” Dr. Grossman concludes.

Process Pigging Specialist HPS Takes On New Staff as Part of Company's Expansion Plans

HPS Product Recovery Solutions are hiring a Design Engineer and Production Technician to meet its ambitious growth plans

HPS are an ambitious company with a robust expansion strategy and we need people who will help to accelerate our growth”

— Gilbert Murphy

NOTTINGHAM, NOTTINGHAMSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, January 24, 2019 / — Leading process pigging specialist, HPS Product Recovery Solutions, are currently recruiting for two new job roles at their head office in Nottingham, UK.

The company, that counts major firms including Unilever, P&G and Coca-Cola among its clients, is looking to fill the roles of Designer Engineer and Production Technician.

The move is part of a drive by the company to meet its ambitious growth plans, as well as meeting an increasing worldwide demand for the company’s products. These include hygienic product recovery (pigging) systems and liquid transfer solutions.

Gilbert Murphy, CEO of HPS said,

“HPS are an ambitious company with a robust expansion strategy and we need people who will help to accelerate our growth”

“Demand for our technologies is gathering greater and greater momentum as companies that process liquids realise the benefits that pigging can bring to their processing operations”.

Because pigging saves so much product, reduces water consumption and the use of cleaning chemicals, it has a positive impact on the environment. At the same time, it increases product yields, reduces downtime and improves efficiency, which gives HPS customers high ROI and increased profits. And that’s only some of the benefits of pigging.

HPS were established in 1995, initially operating from Nottingham’s Science and Technology Park. Over the years, they have achieved substantial growth and now have a global presence with offices in the UK, USA and Australia as well as a network of agents and partners throughout the world.

The company is the market leader in the niche technology ‘pigging’ that recovers product from pipelines, that would otherwise be sent to waste. They also specialise in custom-designed Automatrix and Rotomatrix liquid distribution solutions.

HPS are renowned for their high-quality leading-edge products as well as their dedication to customer care and innovation.

Their key markets are the food and drink, cosmetics and personal care, household products, chemicals, paint and pet food processing industries.

Gilbert Concludes,

“To service the demand for our products, we currently have some fantastic opportunities available for individuals interested in working for a market leading company in the engineering sector”

“HPS’s focus on innovation, training and development will ensure these new recruits have the depth and breadth of skills and the support they need to help HPS achieve its growth targets”.
