Spun out of the pharmaceutical business Merck by Stephen Gallagher, 46, and Alastair Hill, 42, in 2005, this Hertfordshire firm develops software to support scientific research teams producing new drugs. Its products allow users to query and import data, run multiple analyses and create visualisations — it also has an algorithm that can analyse 1 trillion strands of DNA a second. In 2017, it raised an undisclosed amount from Scottish Equity Partners. Offices in Japan, South Korea and America, as well as distributors in China, helped boost exports to £18.1m last year.
