Waban to Adapt Software for MetriGenix Microarrays

NEW YORK, March 25 -MetriGenix has signed on Waban Software to adapt its Waban Explorer software for use with Metrigenix' microarrays, the companies said today.


Waban Explorer is a data warehouse and integration system for drug discovery. The system integrates data from diverse sources such as OMIM and GenBank with data and analyses from researcher's assays, and is 21 CFR part 11 compliant. Under this collaboration, the software will be tailored to accept data from the 4D Array system, a honeycomb-like microarray with probes on the insides of channels.


MetriGenix, a Gaithersburg, Md., spin-out of Gene Logic, markets the 4D array system with genomic and proteomic content that is focused on assays for cancer, cardiovascular disease, CNS disease, and autoimmune ailments. The flow-through design of the chip is designed to speed hybridization and reduce assay time.


MetriGenix chose Waban because of the "system scalability" as well as their technological expertise and "vision," said MetriGenix CEO Andrew O'Beirne in a statement.
