Introducing High Performance Virtual Integrated Environment (HIVE) Platform for Biopharma & Diagnostic Sponsors

The Embleema HIVE Platform is the only FDA-trusted -omics Big Data Platform for Regulatory Decisions

What is HIVE?

A comprehensive bioinformatics and regulatory analytics platform for all genomic and biomarker data.

HIVE has been used by the FDA for regulatory decisions and research projects since 2013.

Trusted Platform

HIVE is the only software with the Authorization to Operate (ATO) for analyzing genomic data in the FDA regulatory review environment.

Now Widely Available

Embleema’s HIVE platform, along with our regulatory expertise, is now offered to sponsors with the endorsement of the FDA.

We improve the speed and quality of genomic / biomarker submissions using identical standards and analytics currently used by the FDA.

Developed at the FDA by the Lead Scientist and Director of R&D, Bioinformatics, HIVE is now an Embleema Asset.

Since 2013, FDA HIVE Platform has Assessed Novel Therapies in Oncology, Anti-Viral, Diagnostic, Cellular and Gene Therapy Applications

Differentiated Research and Regulatory Bioinformatics for Life Sciences

Life sciences align with the FDA on their genomic data management, analytics and submission to accelerate NDAs, BLAs and INDs.

Use Case: Viral Vector Therapy Manufacturing Consistency

The FDA Office of Vaccines Research and Review (OVVR) uses HIVE to perform genomic analysis of viral vector product and vaccine batches, “making them significantly safer and more effective.” (*) HIVE detected a pathogenic mutation in a polio vaccine batch (**)

What is the current problem?

Non-comprehensive (miss revirulent genomic mutations of the attenuated virus)

Time consuming (~6 months)

Cost prohibitive

Raises ethical questions on level of animal testing

The Embleema Solution

HIVE performs a population analysis at genomic level (NGS) of batches of Viral Vector product, providing a significantly more sensitive and comprehensive comparison at molecular level with the reference sample and a less expensive solution for manufacturing consistency.


Fast (1 week)

Analysis accepted by the FDA

Cut back on animal testing

Set-up a more accurate vaccine manufacturing consistency quality-control at genomic level, reducing your dependency on animal-based tests & saving you time and money.
