NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Applied Biosystems and Geospiza have expanded their product-development alliance to integrate platforms, and plan to launch a genetic analysis-integration tool next month, the companies said today.
The new product, called the Finch Suite Genetic Analysis Integration Tool, integrates ABI’s Genemapper and SeqScape genetic-analysis tools with Geospiza’s Finch Suite data management system.
The tool is expected to improve customers’ ability to scale and automate their information technology infrastructure, the companies said in a statement. It is currently being used by select customers and will be launched on Sept. 6. Geospiza will distribute and support the new tool.
The new collaboration expands on a similar deal announced in February 2005.
