GenoLogics’ Geneus Achieves GeneChip-compatible™ Status with the Affymetrix GeneChip®
Product News Sep 06, 2007
GenoLogics has announced that the Company has joined the Affymetrix GeneChip–compatible™ Applications Program, and its Geneus product has achieved GeneChip-compatible™ status with the Affymetrix GeneChip® microarray platform.
GenoLogics has integrated its Geneus solution, built for multiple genomics applications, with the Affymetrix GeneChip® platforms, GeneChip Operating Software (GCOS) and the new GeneChip® Command Console™ Software (AGCC).
Since mid-last year the GenoLogics team has been working closely with Affymetrix’ development team, to ensure the development of integration that enables bi-lateral communication between Geneus and the Affymetrix GeneChip microarray platform.
According to GenoLogics, Geneus, a LIMS and scientific data management system (SDMS) purposed for multiple genomics application areas, is built on an adaptable and configurable platform. The Geneus software allows for smooth data flow from one system to another and acts as the informatics backbone for one or multiple labs.
Steve Lincoln, vice president of Informatics at Affymetrix said, “We are pleased to welcome GenoLogics’ Geneus into the GeneChip-compatible family of applications. Geneus’ integration with the Affymetrix platform allows customers to streamline and scale-up their microarray-based science more efficiently and cost-effectively.”
Jason Wilson, product manager at GenoLogics commented, “I am very excited about our GeneChip application partnership with Affymetrix. This high value integration aligns with our strategy to bridge the connectivity gap for researchers with a LIMS and SDMS that interconnects their entire lab with their Affymetrix GeneChip technology.
