Biogazelle is now offering qBase Plus 2, the next generation of the company's quantitative real-time PCR data-analysis software.

Based on peer-reviewed geNorm and qBase technology from Ghent University, qBase Plus 2 is enhanced with proprietary algorithms and time-saving features, Biogazelle said. Extra features include sample grouping ability; new core modules for copy number variant analysis and other applications; and alternative normalization methods, such as global mean normalization.

Available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, qBase Plus 2 uses a completely rewritten calculation engine, making it ideal for high-throughput real-time PCR data analysis on standard computers, Biogazelle said. The software also comes with an integrated statistical analysis wizard that eliminates the need for in-depth knowledge about biostatistics.

Biogazelle is offering two types of licenses: premium, which comes with all analysis features including 12 months of priority support and software upgrade protection; and basic, which comes with the most important data-analysis features but has restrictions on high-throughput data processing, the company said.
