Qiagen Clinical Insight
Qiagen has launched Qiagen Clinical Insight, a bioinformatics content and software platform that clinical testing laboratories can use to interpret and report on genomic variants identified in next-generation sequencing data.
According to the company, the Clinical Insight platform provides tools for evaluating genomic variants in the context of published biomedical literature, professional association guidelines, publicly available databases and annotations, drug labels, and clinical trials. It enables clinicians rapidly classify variants, identify treatment options, and match patients to clinical trials. It also provides access to the Allele Frequency Community, a large repository of ancestral and ethnic diversity data.
The platform currently supports somatic and hereditary cancer testing.
