Mark Warne, Chief Executive Officer of DeepMatter, said: “Over the last year we have achieved encouraging growth in our revenue which has continued into the first half of 2020, despite the challenges imposed by COVID-19. The outlook for our DigitalGlassware™ platform remains positive as pharmaceutical and academic organisations seek solutions for working remotely and in a socially distanced environment.

“We remain cautiously optimistic for the sector in which we operate, observing that M&A activity has bounced back in recent months with pharmaceutical companies collaborating with AI and technology, and we are confident that our enhanced focus on sales will be well received and will contribute to the growth of the business.”

About DeepMatter Group plc 

DeepMatter’s long term strategy is to integrate chemistry with technology, thereby enabling a greater use of artificial intelligence and reaching a point where chemicals can be autonomously synthesised through robotics. In the near term this involves the provision of an integrated software, hardware and artificial intelligence enabled platform, DigitalGlassware™, to scientists across research and process development sectors. 

The DigitalGlassware™ platform allows chemistry experiments to be accurately and systematically recorded, coded and entered into a shared data cloud. The platform is designed to enable chemists to work together effectively; sharing the details of their experiments from anywhere and in real-time, so that work is not needlessly duplicated, time and money wasted, and ultimately so new discoveries may be made faster.
