Euformatics OmnomicsQ Ion Torrent Suite Plugin

Euformatics has launched the OmnomicsQ Ion Torrent Suite plugin. The software can be fully integrated with Thermo Fisher Scientific Ion Torrent sequencers to enable users to access quality control metrics and graphics as part of their workflows without the need for manual external program integration. The plugin gives Ion Torrent Suite users quality information for every sample run as part of their standard run procedure, helping to eliminate errors and flagging any issues with data quality before it affects patients, Helsinki-based Euformatics noted. In addition, the plugin enables users to perform clinical test validation of their next-generation sequencing pipelines with the OmnomicsV validation and verification software.
