Biogazelle Unveils qbasePLUS 2: The Next Generation of Real-time PCR Data-Analysis Software
Product News Jun 08, 2011
Biogazelle presents qbasePLUS 2, a major upgrade of the most powerful, flexible, and user-friendly real-time PCR data-analysis software.
qbasePLUS is based on the peer reviewed Ghent University geNorm™ and qBase™ technology, enhanced with proprietary algorithms and many time-saving features. It offers an open and flexible solution that accepts virtually any input format and renders true confidence in a user’s qPCR results.
“qbasePLUS 2 makes it easier and more powerful than ever to analyze qPCR experiments according to highest quality standards,” says Jan Hellemans, CEO at Biogazelle.
Hellemans continued, “qbasePLUS is developed by experts for qPCR users belonging to all experience levels. Biogazelle’s ever expanding qPCR knowledge is translated into a major software upgrade, shaping the future of qPCR based research.”
Available for Windows, Mac and Linux, qbasePLUS 2 makes use of a completely rewritten calculation engine, making it ideal for high-throughput real-time PCR data-analysis on standard computers.
qbasePLUS 2 makes qPCR data-analysis a breeze, with its manyextra features such as sample grouping ability, new core modules (e.g. copy number variant analysis), and alternative normalization methods (e.g. global mean normalization).
Icing on the cake is that qbasePLUS 2comes with an integrated statistical analysis wizard which eliminates the need for in-depth knowledge about bio-statistics.
“We are convinced that many of our customers will very much appreciate the stat wizard, as statistical analysis still forms a major bottle-neck for many qPCR users.”
A full feature list of the new software is available on the Biogazelle website.
Two license typesare introduced in version 2; premium and basic licenses.
An everlasting premium license comes with all available powerful and easy to use analysis features, including12 months of priority support and software upgrade protection.
A basic license comes with the most important data-analysis features, be it with some restrictions on high-throughput data processing. This one-year license fulfills all the needs of an occasional qPCR user and is already available starting from 295 EUR - 395 USD.
