Qlucore has launched Qlucore Gene Expression Explorer, a software platform that presents all data sets in 3D “so that researchers can easily visualize them in real-time, directly on the computer screen,” the company said. It allows users to analyze and explore data sets of up to 100 million samples on a PC.
The company said that the software can be used to study gene expression microarray data, protein array data, miRNA data, RT-PCR data, protein data from 2D gels, and “any data set of multivariate data of sizes up to 1,000 samples and 100,000 variables, or 1,000 variables and 100,000 samples.”

Innopsys recently launched Mapix 3.5, the latest version of its microarray image analysis software.
Mapix is designed to be used together with the French firm’s scanners. Innopsys said the software is compatible with a broad range of biochips from different suppliers, as well as custom-spotted biochips. It enables batch processing of arrays and allows users to flag spots according to their queries.

Mapix is platform independent and runs on 32- and 64-bits Windows and Linux operating systems.
