NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Swedish bioinformatics firm Qlucore today announced it has raised $840,000 to support the expansion of its sales and marketing operations as well as development work.
The investment came from GLD Invest and will go toward the creation of a US sales office and the expansion of its product development team in Sweden. Qlucore's lead product is the Qlucore Omics Explorer for analyzing gene expression, microarray, real-time PCR, and DNA methylation data as well as other kinds of scientific data.
Qlucore has customers in 17 countries, including large pharmaceutical firms and universities. It announced a distribution deal with Filgen in March covering Qlucore Omics Explorer in Japan.
