Core Life Sciences said today that it has partnered with Belgium's Biogazelle to distribute its qbase+ qPCR software in California.
Based on geNorm and qBase technology developed by Ghent University's Jo Vandesompele and Jan Hellemans, qbase+ is qPCR data-analysis software designed for mRNA gene expression profiling and analysis, miRNA profiling and validation studies, and gene copy number analysis, among other applications.
The software provides "fast, flexible, and reliable qPCR analysis in an open format, with integrated proprietary algorithms and features that have been published in peer-reviewed journals," Core Life Sciences said in a statement.
In addition, qbase+ enables data normalization, quality control, and inter-run calibration, allowing users to "easily generate publication-ready results," the company said. The software is also compliant with the minimum information for publication of quantitative real-time PCR experiment (MIQE) guidelines.
Based in Laguna Niguel, Calif., Core Life Sciences is a distributor and service provider for microarray, PCR, electrophoresis, and microplate products for life science research.
