Gartner’s annual “Cool Vendors” reports acknowledge new and innovative vendors, products and services that drive change in different areas of technology. This specific report presents a deeper focus into building a “Digital R&D” organization and delivering capabilities for “real time” access to R&D operational data and an unparalleled level of situational awareness.

Riffyn provides cloud-based software for better science and faster product development. Riffyn’s platform ensures laboratory experiment data are annotated with experimental context and ready for deep statistical analysis, machine learning and visualization the moment they are collected. Riffyn eliminates data fragmentation and uninterpretable spreadsheets and enables real-time scientific collaboration. Riffyn supports cell line development, screening, bioprocessing, purification, analytical chemistry, animal studies, food processing and more. Since its launch in 2016, some of the largest life science and industrial biotech companies have adopted Riffyn.

“R&D is at a crisis. Companies are wasting millions of dollars and months of effort because they are not able to link their data across functional silos, nor access the experimental context for their data. Riffyn solves this with a design-based approach that allows anyone to build, revise and share their scientific process. The platform also assembles the data from every step of the process into perfectly formatted tables for deep statistical analysis without the need for database administrators or data engineers,” said Tim Gardner, CEO and founder of Riffyn. “We are honored to be recognized by Gartner as a ‘Cool Vendor’ for R&D Manufacturing.”
