Cartagenia said this week that Greenwood Genetic Center, a non-profit institute that provides clinical genetic services and diagnostic laboratory testing, his licensed its BenchLab next-generation sequencing and copy number variant analysis software solutions.
Cartagenia's BenchLab NGS product is designed to interpret data from gene panels as well as exome- and whole-genome sequencing, and to generate clinical reports based on the results. Its BenchLab CNV solution helps labs use microarray testing for prenatal diagnosis.
