NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Ingenuity Systems and Affymetrix today announced a deal to co-promote each other's products.
Specifically, the terms of the deal call for the firms to co-promote Ingenuity iReport with Affy's expression microarray products. The combined products, Ingenuity and Affy said, will provide researchers a sample-to-insight continuous workflow "for rapid, confident interpretation of results without the need for bioinformatics experience or support."
Ingenuity iReport is an interactive, web-based report that uses the Ingenuity Knowledge Base of biological and chemical data culled from peer-reviewed literature and databases.
"Bundling together our robust expression microarrays with the iReport platform will provide Affymetrix's customers with a simple and accurate tool to convert data into biologically relevant results," Kevin Cannon, senior vice president of the expression business unit at Affy, said in a statement.
Financial and other terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
