NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Fluidigm today announced it has signed a deal to distribute and co-market GenomOncology's GO Clinical Workbench software for variant interpretation.
Under the terms of the agreement, Fluidigm will offer the software solution to customers for the interpretation of somatic variants identified using Fluidigm's Juno targeted next-generation sequencing library preparation systems.
GO Clinical Workbench is built on a curated database that provides information on variants related to driver mutations, pharmacogenomics, prognosis, and cell-signaling pathways.
"GenomOncology is leading the way in developing easy-to-use tools to streamline somatic mutation profiling and variant reporting," Fluidigm CEO Chris Linthwaite said in a statement. "We look forward to providing these industry-leading tools to our customers and further expanding this combined offering with NGS oncology panels for translational and clinical research."
GenomOncology CEO Manuel Glynias added that the partnership would enable labs to meet the demands of molecular tumor screening and reporting.
