Geospiza Closes $3M in Financing

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Geospiza today said it has completed a $3 million round of series A stock financing.
 
Geospiza, which sells genomic data-management software, said it intends to use the funds to add product and sales staff to meet increasing demand.
 
The company said it will also use the funds to expand a collaboration with Applied Biosystems that the companies began in 2005 and expanded in August.
 
Geospiza said that the development of new tests for cancer and infectious disease is driving demand for its software, and that its customers are seeing increased pressure to "streamline their analytical procedures and reduce testing backlog."
