ABI, Integromics To Integrate Real-Time PCR, Analytical Software

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Applied Biosystems and Integromics have partnered to integrate and co-market a high-throughput software system for real-time PCR data analysis, the companies said today.
 
The system will combine Integromics’ Real-Time StatMiner software with any of ABI’s RT-PCR systems. It will enable researchers to analyze data from an RT-PCR instrument using interactive data visualization, statistical analysis, and data mining tools.  
 
John Gerace, VP and GM of sequence detection for ABI, said the offering will allow gene expression researchers to “turn their data into meaningful information for use in a range of research projects including drug discovery and development.”
