COLUMBIA, SC—Collexis Holdings Inc. (OTCBB:CLXS), a developer of search and discovery software, has acquired its longtime development partner, German-based SyynX Solutions. Financial details were not disclosed.
Collexis and SyynX have collaborated on both a technical and commercial level and the transaction is designed to combine the respective strengths of each company. Recently, the two organizations partnered to design the next generation in social networking, an online platform for the life sciences community.
The comprehensive system of pre-populated expert profiles, coupled with the ability to analyze all associated professional connections within the network, allows scientists and researchers across multiple organizations to share data and collaborate.
SyynX software applications, based on the proprietary Collexis Fingerprint technology, are already a valuable research tool employed globally by organizations such as Johns Hopkins, the Mayo Clinic, Harvard University’s Dana Farber Cancer Institute and The National Institutes of Health.
“The SyynX software component is an ideal strategic complement to our existing capabilities as the market leader in high-definition search and discovery solutions,” said Bill Kirkland, CEO of Collexis. “Our comprehensive offerings address a growing market trend, as scientists are increasingly recognizing the essential role that informatics, database and workflow solutions play in more effectively managing research programs and driving higher productivity.”
