BioInfoRx Enables Research Laboratories to Get Into the Cloud!
BioInfoRx provides standard and custom software-as-a-service (SaaS) to academic, non-profit, and commercial research laboratories, and small biotech and pharmaceutical companies.
BioInfoRx's cloud-based systems include powerful tools for managing general laboratory information and processing biological data with bioinformatic or biostatistical methods.
I found that most difficulties in research laboratories are related to information management, about how to manage, process, use, share, and protect information to support research. To solve these difficulties, I established BioInfoRx, aiming to offer real-time, long-term, integrated and affordable information solutions to research laboratories.
Recent advances in internet technologies, in particular cloud computing, provide BioInfoRx opportunities to develop such solutions. Now is the time for research laboratories to move into the cloud! Cloud-based services provide solutions to many problems we could not solve before. Operation in the cloud means BioInfoRx hardware and software will handle researchers’ data and processing, solving the lab needs for hiring IT persons, purchasing dedicated servers, and performing daily system maintenance.
BioInfoRx has already developed a suite of products to help researchers handle various types of information, from routine lab management to complex biological data management and processing. These products are market ready and have been tested by thousands of researchers.
" ... Remarkably we use these BioInfoRx systems every day. Everyone that we show it to is jealous they don't have something similar and it has generated analysis and figures that we have successfully used to secure some grants recently."

" ... In the last five years, my lab has changed four technicians and over 20 students. Still, we can tell where every dollar was spent, retrieve the sequence of any construct, and figure out exactly how many mice and cages we have at any time. Without BioInfoRx systems, I can not imagine how we would survive."

BioInfoRx was registered in Wisconsin as C-class Corporation on March 8, 2005.
BioInfoRx is currently located in the University Research Park at 510 Charmany Drive, Suite 275, Madison, WI 53719.
BioInfoRx’s start-up funds came from commercially driven revenues from the beginning. In addition, in 2008, BioInfoRx received a two-year phase I SBIR grant. In September 2009, BioInfoRx received an administrative supplement grant. These grants supported development of a state-of-the-art, highly automated, web-based proprietary microarray data management and analysis system.
The BioInfoRx team is composed of experts in life sciences and computer sciences who are on a mission to solve the laboratory information management and processing bottleneck.
Ron has extensive experiences in life sciences, computer sciences, and business. Ron is largely responsible for designing the system architects and business development.
The key to BioInfoRx's solutions is a proprietary application framework (BxAF), which allows BioInfoRx to develop a complete package of cloud-based information solutions. BioInfoRx's proprietary framework is what makes BioInfoRx unique in the market place.
BioInfoRx adopts Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) business model, which solves laboratory needs for hiring special IT persons, purchasing dedicated servers, and performing daily system maintenance.
