NEW YORK, Oct 25 – Applied Biosystems has begun to sell Genomica’s LinkMapper genotyping analysis software with its genotyping systems, Genomica said Wednesday.
The commercial release of the product follows a co-marketing and exclusive distribution agreement announced in May.
" We are now entering the sales and revenue-generation phase of our partnership with Applied Biosystems and at the same time are bringing our first product, based on Java and Oracle, to the marketplace," Teresa Ayers, Genomica’s CEO, said in a statement.
Genomica is currently in the process of transferring its software to the Java/Oracle platform.
Under the terms of its deal with Applied Biosystems, Genomica has developed and will maintain the LinkMapper software, a functional subset of the genetic-analysis portion of Genomica's Discovery Manager software. LinkMapper is designed to work specifically with Applied Biosystems new ABI Prism GeneMapper High Performance Genotyping Software for genetic data management and analysis.
Together LinkMapper and GeneMapper are designed to integrate data from the genotyping instrument through called alleles to the downstream linkage analysis, Genomica said.
Last month Applied Biosystems also announced a $3 million equity investment in Genomica.
