Provision of HepaRG™ on SaferWorldbyDesign
Christophe Chesné, CEO, Wepredic and Barry Hardy, CEO, Edelweiss Connect
HepaRG™ has been manufactured and distributed for many years by Biopredic International, now part of Wepredic. We realized in recent years the increasing need for the development of HepaRG™ infrastructure and services to keep up with the increasing requirements of the HepaRG™ research community and requests from our customers. It became obvious that we needed to go digital to organize the information around the product to provide value-added services including administration, quality control, data services, and applications. Such a significant endeavor would require investment in a modern knowledge infrastructure organising data and workflows in the cloud combined with services providing value and engagement with the user community. Wepredic decided to partner with Edelweiss Connect to combine their forces and experience in bringing the HepaRG™ world of biology into the digital realm.
Our current HepaRG™ resources on the SaferWorldbyDesign portal support the foundational business processes for ordering HepaRG™ and related products, customer support, and providing online advice and tutorials to users. We are currently showcasing the HepaRG™ Gene Expression Tool supporting users querying gene expression profiling of the cell line. Most importantly, we welcome HepaRG™ users and community members to join our interactions on the portal and look forward to supporting individual research goals to the very best of our abilities.
