TATAA Biocenter said today that it has begun using Ingenuity Systems' iReport software in high-throughput gene expression profiling workflows.
The combined solution enables TATAA Biocenter's laboratories to provide contract research for a full range of real-time qPCR services — including primer and probe design, validation, kit and instrument evaluation, and biological and statistical analysis.
TATAA Biocenter offers all of the instrumentation and sample handing necessary to perform high-quality qPCR experiments, and meets specific requirements for compliance with ISO 17025. Ingenuity iReport enables researchers to quickly and easily identify significant differentially expressed genes and interpret the impact of those expression changes in the context of pathways, phenotypes, and molecular interactions.
Mikael Kubista, founder and CEO of TATAA Biocenter, said in a statement that TATAA decided on iReport for pathway analysis because it provides a "smooth workflow" with data collected on the biocenter's Life Technologies OpenArray and Fluidigm BioMark high-throughput qPCR platforms; reads batchwise into GenEx software for multivariate statistical analysis, and provides "an easy, accurate, web-based biological and statistical interpretation tool."
