Celera Using InforSense's Data Platform

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – InforSense today said that it has "developed a long-term relationship" with Celera, under which the molecular diagnostics firm is using InforSense's Translational Research Solution in automating experimental data analysis and molecular annotation.

London-based InforSense said that it has provided Celera with a translation research platform that will support clinical data browsing, automated integration and analysis of enzyme-linked immunoassays, single nucleotide polymorphisms, and other experimental and public data.

"We wanted to empower our scientists to be able to access and analyze a variety of orthologous clinical and experimental data to support biomarker discovery, and InforSense has provided us with the means to do this," said John Sninsky, vice president of research for Celera, in a statement.

Financial and further terms of the collaboration were not disclosed.
