Better R&D, faster

Seemingly endless sources of unconnected information, complex data, analytics and conversations must be efficiently harnessed to make smart R&D decisions.  Engineering the information systems and workflow solutions to accomplish this is a challenging task.  We built a new type of R&D cloud that deploys rapidly and integrates everything and everybody required to drive productive R&D programs.  Secure, scaleable and available on any device at any time.

Your Team's Integrated Workspace

Discover

Discover

Semantically search our ever-expanding open access library that delivers results in extracted computable text, highly relevant to your search query, rather than clickable links to endless PDFs that might not have significant relevance.  Our proprietary ingestion pipeline and BioNLP algorithms process, index and deliver content that can be added to libraries, shared or annotated with a single click Show More
Our technology is not limited to a particular type of publication so we enable mash-ups and cross domain enterprise searches. Show Less
Import

Import

Today’s researchers need access to diverse content. Catalytic’s content ingestion pipelines enable you to rapidly add your content to a private and secure ~35M document OA library by uploading from a reference manager, online storage provider, your corporate library or desktop. Create richer and more comprehensive libraries that only you and your company can access.

Show More

When you upload papers to your Catalytic platform, our proprietary, automated ingestion pipeline performs numerous functions designed to make your content more useful. We transform your papers so that they are easy to organize, search, annotate, share and compute on while maintaining the original article format you are familiar with. We also securely store your original PDFs so they are downloadable at any time. Finally, we provide a citation management and export tool to streamline the drafting of manuscripts or presentations.

Analyze

Analyze

Use your favorite custom, third party and open access analytics or launch powerful pipelines to analyze your data without ever leaving your platform. Evaluate gene editing experiments, process multi-omic data sets, assign gene function, prioritize variants, visualize interaction maps, and characterize protein properties to name a just a few possible workflows.

 

Show More
We are engineering solutions to bring common next generation bioinformatics, analytics and visualizations straight to working scientists. We understand that most researchers don't work from the command line and thus valuable analytic tools that could advance your work remain out of reach. We wrap these powerful tools in easy to execute interfaces that any user can launch, save and share. Saved workflows enable version locking, documented provenance, and once created, can be re-launched with a single click to run on updated datasets as frequently as you desire.  Show Less
Mine

Mine

Use our proprietary BioNLP pipeline to semantically mine your papers, annotations, workflows, enterprise content and messaging streams. Our BioNLP pipeline processes and indexes all of your content so that you can quickly search and find the information you need.  Whether searching biomedical domain terminology in your papers or common language in your chat streams, our BioNLP pipeline is designed to return relevant associated text matches that can be quickly analyzed for relevance. 

 

Show More

We built a solution that enables scientists to increase the signal and decrease the noise by rapidly identifying exactly what they need without wasting time reading through search results that contain key words but often no relevance.

Annotate

Annotate

Catalytic's platform transforms your static PDFs into a more dynamic and useable format so you or your collaborative groups can interact with content more effectively. Highlight, tag and comment on any text, figure or table in a paper. Save individual or group annotations, share annotations or export them to a text file with one-click. Show More
Our light annotation tool designed for working researchers to enable rapid highlighting, tagging of biomedical concepts, note taking and sharing, both inside your organization or externally with collaborators.  Our in-line drawing tool makes marking images and tables simple and fast.  All annotations are accessible from within your article or directly from your library where they can be searched, shared or exported with a single click. Annotating articles is often tedious work for busy researchers so we built a solution that also gives you the option to automatically extract key biomedical concepts from your papers and make them available to your downstream workflows. Show Less
Collaborate

Collaborate

Communicate instantly through secure in-app and mobile messaging that is omnipresent in your Catalytic workspace or on your mobile device.  Our messaging feature is integrated into your workspace and always available at the time and place you are doing work. Instantly send comments, share a paper, annotation, search result or workflow in a secure, private and searchable interface. Also, Catalytic has built powerful ECM integrations that enable you to quickly create and share work with enterprise grade content control and security. Show More

Communicating and sharing your work product with collaborators or colleagues should not require interrupting workflows to open an email application, third party messaging application or online storage solutions. By integrating team messaging and state of the art ECMs into your Catalytic Platform, all of your collaborative activity is at your finger tips whether in the office or on the go. The best part is that all of your collaborative work can be searched with specific domain language that accurately describes what you are looking for.

Catalytic Corporate Platform

Biology is complex enough. Stop losing productivity by struggling with countless different single purpose tools that aren’t designed to work well together and don’t scale across your Company’s research team. Catalytic built a new type of R&D cloud that will bring all of your corporate digital assets, scientific workflows, communication tools and people together in one integrated and secure platform. Having everybody and everything on a unified platform creates a network effect within scientific teams that accelerates the pace of innovation.

Catalytic Alliance Platform

Corporate partnering is a critical activity that drives life sciences innovation. A significant pain point for both parties entering a new collaboration is creating the digital infrastructure required to start up and wind down collaborations.  Lengthy initiation/termination cycles, high cost and subpar performance are the norm when it comes to digital collaboration spaces for life scientists. We will rapidly spin-up a dedicated cloud-based collaborative environment built specifically for life sciences and configured to best serve your partnership’s needs and data ownership policies. Simply invite authorized team members to the shared platform and start loading data, documents and analytics on day one.

We are Catalytic

We are a team of life scientists and software engineers who believe the brightest minds in science should have access to the best tools that are key to driving innovation.  The Catalytic Platform is a new kind of R&D cloud built specifically for how life scientists work.   By providing researchers with the best digital tools and networking them with colleagues we're empowering R&D teams to generate novel insights, compress the time and money required to achieve key R&D milestones and produce knowledge that can be monetized to drive business forward.

It goes without saying that engineering talent is required to build and constantly improve The Catalytic Platform. Technical competencies that span cloud computing architectures, database technology, data engineering, natural language processing, machine learning, data analytics, data visualization, user interface design, and security are necessary requirements to build useful systems.

Equally important is having both deep life sciences domain expertise and engineering talent residing under the same roof in order to design and build software that scientists actually want to use and that increases their productivity by orders of magnitude.

Rarely, if ever, will this combination of domain expertise and engineering talent reside within a life sciences company. So we started a company and hired an amazing team to build the Catalytic Platform for you.  Now you can focus on what’s important — doing great science. Head on over to our Blog to meet the team and hear what we have been thinking about.
