Agilent Technologies has released the Cartagenia Bench Lab 5.0. This version of the software includes new capabilities for somatic variant classification, review, curation, and reporting, the company said. The updated variant curation tools enable labs to build internal knowledgebases that contain predictive, prognostic, diagnostic, and functional evidence for variants. It accesses tumor type ontology and variant information from curated and public databases to help labs efficiently implement their variant assessment standard operating procedure and more effectively filter variants. The software provides direct access to more than 100 curated databases including CIViC, COSMIC, N-of-One, OncoMD, and CollabRx.
