New York Med School Consortium Opts for Iobion s GeneTraffic

New York, Oct. 9 - Iobion Informatics said today that it signed an agreement with AMDeC, a consortium of thirty nine New York medical schools and research institutions.


Under the terms of the agreement, Iobion will supply its GeneTraffic Multi microarray storage and analysis software to researchers in the consortium. AMDeC's microarray resource center, based at the University of Rochester, will use GeneTraffic Multi to handle microarray data from both Affymetrix GeneChip and spotted array experiments.


A total of 20 GeneTraffic servers will be installed to support an estimated 19,000 researchers in the AMDeC network, said Andrew Brooks, who runs the AMDeC microarray core facility.


Financial terms of the agreement were not provided.


Stephen Sharp, director of marketing at Iobion, said AMDeC users will be able to install the software package with a single CD in order to "load, store, investigate, visualize, and analyze their data from any computer on their local area network."
