Applied Biosytems and Geospiza Collaborate on LIMS for DNA Sequencing

NEW YORK, Feb. 7 (GenomeWeb News) - Applied Biosystems and Geospiza are collaborating to develop and market a laboratory information management system for sequencing laboratories, the companies said today.


Under the agreement, the two partners will integrate ABI's LS*LIMS software with Geospiza's Finch Suite to improve workflows for DNA sequencing data.


ABI will also become a worldwide reseller of Geospiza's Finch System software.


SeqWright, a DNA technologies service provider, is already using the integrated platform as an early access customer.
