Product Watch: Qiagen GeneGlobe


Qiagen this week announced new capabilities for GeneGlobe, a web-based solution enabling researchers to search and select from more than 31 million PCR assay kits and next-generation sequencing assay panel products.

The new version of GeneGlobe integrates biological knowledge from the Ingenuity Target Explorer bioinformatics application with GeneGlobe's extensive library of wet lab assay solutions. By linking biological interpretation and references with the relevant laboratory assays, GeneGlobe creates a new dimension of utility for experimental design, assay selection, and data analysis, Qiagen said.

GeneGlobe includes genome-wide assay solutions for 28 species with any gene or pathway of interest. The search, selection, and interpretation features precisely identify assays and reagents that fit a life science researcher's experimental design and add a comprehensive set of interpretation solutions. GeneGlobe also features resources such as Pathway Central, Data Analysis Center, Custom Assay Design Tools, and the Plate Designer.
