NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) —  The Hospital for Sick Children Research Institute in Toronto will use GenoLogics’ Geneus software for collaborative stem cell research projects involving nine other labs, GenoLogics said today.
 
Sick Kids will install an early version of the software some time in the first half of the year and use it to manage microarray, flow cytometry and RNA-preparation information, GenoLogics said. It will also use it to track data from samples and projects.
 
The company said the next version of the Geneus software will include integrations to Affymetrix’ GeneChip platform.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
