InforMax, Media Cybernetics Enter Marketing Deal

NEW YORK, Dec 15 – InforMax of Rockville, Md., and Media Cybernetics of Silver Spring, Md., announced Friday an agreement to distribute Media Cybernetics’ Array-Pro Analyzer and Gel-Pro Analyzer software in conjunction with InforMax’s GenoMax and Vector NTI software.

" We are pleased to work with Media Cybernetics to broaden the tools and services we offer to our user base of well over 20,000 scientists worldwide," Alex Titomirov, InforMax CEO and chairman said in a statement.

Array-Pro Analyzer software allows researchers to generate and report gene expression data from microarrays, while InforMax’s GenoMax is used to analyze such information.

Gel-Pro Analyzer is used to generate electrophoretic images, complementing InforMax’s Vector NTI Suite, which is used for planning and predicting molecular biological experiments, the companies said.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
