Riffyn Launches Beta Version of Design Software for R&D Quality and Collaboration

OAKLAND - September 9, 2015 - Riffyn, Inc. announced the upcoming beta launch of its experimental design software for quality and collaboration in life science, chemical and materials R&D. Registration for Riffyn’s beta launch is open until September 14th.

Poor data quality, inadequate experimental design tools, and barriers to data sharing are costing tens of billions of dollars per year in irreproducible R&D outcomes globally*. Riffyn’s cloud-based software unites visual design of experiments, real-time data integration, 24/7 analytics and peer-peer sharing to reduce error and accelerate discovery in research and development. Access to Riffyn will be free for both academic and industrial researchers.

“After a year of intensive development, we are thrilled to release Riffyn beta. The software incorporates our decades of learning on experimental design and data integration for life science, chemical, and materials R&D,” said Tim Gardner, Founder/CEO of Riffyn. “There is an overwhelming desire for elegant tools that make data quality and analytics easier and more accessible to R&D professionals. We believe Riffyn delivers quality and analytical insight to its users, and a faster path to reliable, sharable discoveries.”

The company plans to release its beta in the Autumn of 2015. Interested researchers can register their application to access the Riffyn beta software at http://riffyn.com.
