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.”

Small imperfections in a wine glass or tiny creases in a contact lens can be tricky to make out, even in good light. In almost total darkness, images of such transparent features or objects are nearly impossible to decipher. But now, engineers at MIT have developed a technique that can reveal these “invisible” objects, in the dark.
For scientists wrestling with problems as diverse as containing superhot plasma in a fusion reactor, improving the accuracy of weather forecasts, or probing the unexplained dynamics of a distant galaxy, turbulence-spawning shear flow is a serious complicating factor. A new supercomputer-powered effort aims to make modelling shear far easier.
