Bioz Has Partnered With Worthington Biochemical to Unlock the Value of Scientific Data and Catalyze Research
LOS ALTOS, Calif. - May 9, 2019 (3:00 am PT) - Bioz, Inc., a Silicon Valley AI data company, is proud to announce at American Association for Immunology (AAI) in San Diego, a new partnership with primary enzyme producer Worthington Biochemical. Worthington's 70 years of R&D efforts are aimed at the rapidly growing global fields of interest, including immunology, cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, and bioprocessing. Their high quality reputation draws the world's top researchers to their product portfolio.
Worthington's products are regularly cited in top peer-reviewed journals, with over 100 new citations per month. With this partnership, Worthington is leveraging the deep AI technology that Bioz has developed over several years, which incorporates the latest advances in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning (ML). This technology now enables Worthington's researchers in academia and biopharma to access real-world Worthington product applications that come directly from scientific articles. The applications are displayed on the Worthington website within Bioz Badges, iFrame widgets that include product-specific article citations. The badges enable Worthington to further empower researchers, incorporate transparency, increase researcher confidence, and improve the overall experience of researchers who visit their website.
The product applications that are federated from Bioz to Worthington's website are generated by mining 28 million scientific articles for product-specific data, the use-cases, and then structuring this objective information into product recommendations. Because peer-reviewed life science articles detail product usage in experiments, scientists who visit Worthington's website can consider the contents of the Bioz Badges to be a trusted reference point when selecting which of Worthington's products to purchase for their own experiments. Badges also include a Bioz Stars score for each product, an objective product rating that adheres to the Bioz policy of ZERO BIAS®.
"I am very excited to partner with Worthington, to provide their customers with peer-reviewed product-specific data," said Dr. Karin Lachmi, co-founder and CSO of Bioz. "Worthington's long-standing stellar reputation as a manufacturer of highly-cited enzymes, means that they play a key role in a large number of assays and experiments that are performed in academia and biopharma," Dr. Lachmi added that "this partnership surfaces the latest Worthington product citations, enhancing transparency and objectivity, and thus supporting and advancing research around the world."
"Our products have been frequently cited in a large number of publications for decades. Now with the live-streamed Bioz Badges, we are able to display real-world applications and peer-reviewed scientific data relating to our products, which is immensely helpful for when researchers plan and perform their experiments," said James Zacka, VP at Worthington. Mr. Zacka added "Worthington maintains a rich library of technical resources and content for our customers. The Bioz platform augments our website with up-to-date product specific protocols, helping them to make well-informed purchasing decisions."
