Iris BioTechnologies

Iris BioTechnologies this week launched BioWindows, a computer-based survey program designed for individuals to compile personalized in-depth profiles to help determine the most appropriate medical solution for cancer treatment.
According to Iris, each individual that uses BioWindows confidentially enters personal information, including demographics, medical history, and lifestyle choices, into a database. The information obtained in the survey is then used alongside gene expression profiles of tumor biopsy samples obtained with Iris’ Nano-BioChip to tailor treatment for the individual.
BioArray News spoke with Iris CEO Simon Chin about BioWindows in March (see BAN 3/11/2008).
