Our Products

Here are a few of our products:


Leading VNA CTMS imaging platform for storing, viewing OCT images online

An imaging platform allowing eye care professionals to easily upload, share their imaging data and present their cases interactively in a conference setting for educational purposes or as part of a clinical trial. We support all major optical coherence tomography vendor supported. Currently deployed in other 10 sites in UK and Japan.


Leading CTMS for running decentralised trials

A versatile CTMS that incorporate a fully configurable eCRF for running clinical trials in any setting. Provides an interface for participants to fill in surveys. Incoprorates the DataGuardian(TM) functionalilty offering advanced analytics to identify potential issues with trial data early on in the process. Currently deployed in other 100 sites in the NHS.

Genomics Open-Source Browser

An Online Platform for Genetic & Phenotype Data

An open-source website providing an intuitive interface to genetic and phenotypic databases. It provides variant filtering and gene prioritization based on the Human Phenotype Ontology. Our Genome Browser accelerates clinical diagnosis, gene discovery and encourages adoption of the Human Phenotype Ontology in the study of rare genetic diseases.


An interactive online platform for predicting phenotypes using methylation data.

An interactive online platform that implements a comprehensive and systematic pipeline of all major epigenetic clocks and other predictors, such as smoking status. Users may upload their own data and instantly compare different results produced from multiple epigenetic predictors.


A metric for identifying novel genotype to phenotype associations

An analysis and visualisation tool that combines, Human Phenotype Ontology defined patient phenotypes, population allele frequency, and variant pathogenicity prediction, in order to uncover gene to phenotype associations.


A secure photography app for Healthcare professionals

Users can tag images and add comments, allowing them to discuss cases with colleagues in a secure environment. Anonymised images with the required level of consent can be exported into presentations and publications, and can also be printed using AirPlay enabled devices.
