NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – CLC Bio and Isilon Systems have partnered to offer their high-throughput sequencing analysis and storage products to life sciences customers, CLC Bio said today.
The firms plan to start the partnership by offering a bundled solution that combines the CLC Genomics Machine with Isilon IQ's NAS (network-attached storage) platform for genomics researchers. The companies also plan to offer customized setups for large scale solutions.
"With high-throughput sequencing rising in popularity tremendously fast, our consumers are constantly faced with storage challenges of a scale they haven't experienced previously," CLC Bio CEO Thomas Knudsen said in a statement.
"Getting the sequencing instruments working and producing large datasets is the first hurdle in a high-throughput sequencing workflow," Leonard Iventosch, Isilon's VP of global channel and OEM, said in a statement. "We know from our customers that analyses and storage are the other major hurdles."
