Rosalind Partners with Geninus, Helixrus to Bring Single-Cell Software to Asian Markets

NEW YORK – San Diego-based bioinformatics firm Rosalind said on Thursday that it has partnered with Seoul-based firms Geninus and Helixrus to bring its single-cell sequencing data analysis platform to South Korea and other Asian Markets.

Genomics services provider Geninus will combine Rosalind's platform with its Celinus single-cell RNA sequencing service. Helixrus will provide local support services for the Rosalind platform.

Financial and other details of the agreements were not disclosed.

Rosalind, formerly known as OnRamp Bioinformatics, rebranded last month and launched its diagnostic monitoring platform for SARS-CoV-2 Variants.

Last month Geninus partnered with Ocean Genomics to develop RNA-based cancer biomarkers.
