24 February 2009, Cambridge, UK – BioWisdom Ltd (BioWisdom), a market leader in delivering healthcare intelligence to the pharmaceutical industry, today launches version 2 of their KnowledgeScan service.
KnowledgeScan provides comprehensive and independent assessment of a business issue, and version 2 extends to the use of BioWisdom’s powerful intelligence software (SofiaTM, OmniVizÂ©, SRSTM) and its range of new assertional meta-data (AMD) products. KnowledgeScan projects are commonly commissioned for gathering chemical, biological or commercial intelligence relevant to in-licensing activities, drug safety assessment, marketing campaigns or assessment of a competitive landscape.

“KnowledgeScan is a growing business for BioWisdom and with our strengthening technology base and ever-expanding AMD products, we are pleased to be able to continue to provide value to our clients through these focussed service projects.” said Dr. Julie Barnes, Chief Scientific Officer.
“This was a very rewarding project for the development team, and the findings have influenced our clinical plan in several ways,” says Dr Karen Maubach of BTG. “Having worked with BioWisdom for more than 12 months now, we are always impressed with how they can work their technology and reveal new insight that extends beyond what we could do manually.”
