UW-Madison Selects Cartagenia's Bench Platform for Genomic Analysis

Premium

Cartagenia said this week that the University of Wisconsin-Madison has selected its Bench platform for use in its healthcare facilities including Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene, the UW Biotech Center, and other institutions.

Cartagenia's Bench solution is a cloud-based software and database platform that provides tools and content that genetics labs can use to analyze, interpret, report, and share genomic variations in clinical diagnostics settings.

UW-Madison selected Cartagenia's solution after a public tender competition. CEO Herman Verrelst said in a statement that the company will work closely with the institution to install and customizing the solutions to meet the university's needs.

Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.
