PerkinElmer Announces Strategic Alliance with Integromics
News Jun 25, 2013
OmicsOffice® 5 improves and accelerates genomic analysis workflows by enabling integrated comparison of data from microarray, next generation sequencing and qPCR experiments within the TIBCO Spotfire® analytics platform.
PerkinElmer, Inc. announced a strategic alliance with Integromics, S.L. to become the sole worldwide distributor of Integromics’ software for the TIBCO Spotfire data visualization platform. In addition, PerkinElmer and Integromics announced the release of OmicsOffice 5.0, developed by Integromics. The new OmicsOffice software will be exclusively available from PerkinElmer under the agreement.
OmicsOffice allows users of TIBCO Spotfire to handle, process, analyze and properly visualize diverse genomics data. The software provides scientists with a rich and flexible set of statistical and functional analysis tools specifically for the study and cross-validation of microarray, next generation sequencing and qPCR data on a single platform, and allows them to extract relevant and reliable biological conclusions from genomic data. Using OmicsOffice, genomics scientists can significantly improve the quality of their results, as they respond to scalability and integration challenges in this rapidly evolving field.
Michael Stapleton, general manager, PerkinElmer Informatics said, “We are delighted that PerkinElmer will take on distribution of the new OmicsOffice product. It represents a true synergy with our mission to offer end-to-end informatics solutions throughout the research, discovery and manufacturing processes. As the exclusive worldwide distributor of OmicsOffice, we can provide focused solutions to the genomics and next generation sequencing community to improve the quality of their work and gain critical insights faster than before.”
“PerkinElmer is the perfect partner for Integromics, particularly for OmicsOffice,” said Víctor Canivell, PhD, Chief Executive Officer of Integromics. “PerkinElmer’s leadership in technologies for scientific discovery and its commitment to advanced analysis tools, provides us with an excellent opportunity to bring the power of OmicsOffice to genomic researchers, as well as to accelerate the release of new omics analysis tools.”

Towards Personalized Medicine: One Type of Data is Not EnoughNews
To understand the biology of diseased organs researchers use different types of molecular data. One of the biggest computational challenges at the moment is integrating these multiple data types. A new computational method jointly analyses different types of molecular data and disentangles the sources of disease variability to guide personalized treatment.READ MORE
Gene-edited Pigs are Resistant to Billion-dollar VirusNews
Scientists have produced pigs that can resist one of the world’s most costly animal diseases, by changing their genetic code. Tests with the virus – called Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome, or PRRS – found the pigs do not become infected at all. The animals show no signs that the change in their DNA has had any other impact on their health or wellbeing.READ MORE
