Illumina Connected Insights
Illumina has released Connected Insights, a cloud-based software for tertiary analysis of clinical next-generation sequencing data.
Connected Insights builds on the firm's Connected Software portfolio and is designed to streamline interpretation and reporting. The initial release supports somatic oncology applications. The software integrates third-party knowledge bases, including the Jackson Laboratory's Clinical Knowledgebase, to reduce turnaround time of clinical reporting.
Connected Insights is assay-agnostic and compatible with variant calling files (VCF) from any secondary analysis solution, including Illumina's Dragen secondary analysis. Connected Insights supports a wide range of DNA and RNA assays with VCF output, including targeted and comprehensive genomic profiling panels, whole-exome and whole-genome sequencing, and transcriptomic data from both tissue and liquid samples.
The product is undergoing beta testing in the US but is commercially available in a "limited number" of countries.
