Ingenuity Systems and Life Technologies Introduce Complete End-to-End Solution for Real-Time PCR Gene Expression Analysis
Product News Apr 03, 2012
Ingenuity Systems and Life Technologies Corporation today announced Ingenuity iReport for Real-Time PCR optimized for TaqMan® Gene Expression Assays. The new solution is an interactive report that extends analysis beyond Ct or fold-changes to an accurate and dynamic view of the biological information most relevant to a gene expression experiment.
Dr. Mikael Kubista, founder of TATAA Biocenter in Goteborg, Sweden, studies gene expression in single-cell astrocytes. "In our research, we have developed specific strategies for analyzing single-cell data and defining important sets of genes based on correlation between the genes' expressions as measured by qPCR. Uploading this data to iReport, we were able to immediately see the biology underlying our statistical results, and develop new hypotheses based on the differentially expressed pathways involved in our single cell experiments."
In contrast to time consuming manual searches for relevant publications and gene relationships, Ingenuity iReport for Real-Time PCR provides a more rapid and comprehensive understanding of pathways, processes, and diseases relevant to gene expression results. With its engaging and intuitive design, iReport for Real-Time PCR can be used by bench scientists to easily and accurately understand the biological meaning of their experiment within minutes. Peer-reviewed literature is cited throughout the report, allowing the underlying evidence to be easily accessed and referenced. iReport for Real-Time PCR has been optimized for several TaqMan Gene Expression assay formats, including TaqMan Array Card and OpenArray® file types.
"Ingenuity iReport for Real-Time PCR is the perfect complement to our industry-leading PCR portfolio," said Chris Linthwaite, Head of Genetic Analysis, Life Technologies. "Our Real-Time PCR products produce data that is highly sensitive and specific with a broad dynamic range and at a cost-effective price per data point. Integrating iReport into our portfolio will enable our customers to accelerate the pace of scientific discovery – quickly connecting data to biological meaning."
"Life Technologies is focused on creating a complete user experience for their PCR customers," said Jake Leschly, CEO of Ingenuity Systems. "With iReport for Real-Time PCR we have designed a revolutionary product that will help researchers identify relevant biology from gene expression experiments and we have gone to great lengths to design a fully integrated marketing, e-commerce and customer support experience to ensure that the combined Real-Time PCR iReport experience is as seamless and easy as the products themselves."
