Illumina picks sequencing platform

Illumina has selected Geneus, GenoLogics’ lab and data management system for genomics, to provide a combined solution offering with the Illumina sequencing platform, Genome Analyser.

 ‘We went to market to find a lab and data management partner that complemented our next generation sequencing platform in its ability to provide scalability, flexible workflow management, data pipelining capabilities, and an ability to support multiple applications, and the GenoLogics’ genomics solution, Geneus, proved to be an excellent fit,’ said Omoshile Clement, senior product manager of informatics for Illumina.

Clement added: ‘The comprehensive way in which we are working with GenoLogics is a new approach for us, taking our partnership to a whole new level by integrating Genome Analyzer workflows into Geneus, in addition to integrating other Illumina platforms.’

 The principles of the Illumina business partnership with GenoLogics include working on many initiatives across the company. From a technology perspective, the partnership provides customers with a clear path to obtain an end-to-end lab and data management solution for next generation sequencing as well as a single system for enabling cross-genomics experiments.
