Strategic collaboration to provide bioinformatics analysis software for whole genome mapping.

OpGen, Inc., has announced the company has entered into a strategic collaboration with Applied Maths NV to provide advanced software tools for microbial genomics and molecular strain typing.

Under the agreement, Applied Maths has incorporated a Whole Genome Mapping module into the company’s new BioNumerics 7 software suite, providing customers with seamless access to a new set of analytical tools for molecular typing and comparative genomics of microbial pathogens.

“We are pleased to be working with Applied Maths to enable our public health, biodefense and microbial research customers access to Applied Maths’ BioNumerics analysis suite,” said Douglas White, chief executive officer of OpGen, Inc.

White continued, “The Applied Maths software and database analysis suite will provide a flexible, integrated solution that will enable broader adoption of Whole Genome Mapping.”

“The efficient management of food-borne pathogen outbreaks through enhanced approaches for epidemiological surveillance requires the rapid detection of potential outbreaks and improved molecular typing solutions,” said Koen Janssens, chief executive officer of Applied Maths.

Janssens continued, “We are pleased to be able to offer our customers access to OpGen’s Whole Genome Mapping technology in the recently released version of our BioNumerics software suite, enabling a one-stop application to distinguish between bacterial strains when analyzing disease outbreaks. This integrated solution will enable researchers to strain type and identify responsible pathogens in a timelier manner, which is crucial to limit outbreaks in time and scope and appropriately treat patients with food borne illnesses.”
