GenoLogics has made an agreement with Illumina to become a technology partner and participant in IlluminaConnect, a bioinformatics software programme established to advance data integration and analysis among the life science community.
GenoLogics will customise Geneus to support Illumina’s BeadArray technology platforms and software for both gene expression and genotyping applications. Geneus includes science-specific modules that are purposed for multiple genomics application areas, and is built on an enterprise laboratory information management system.
The most significant benefit will enable customers to interconnect the Illumina technologies in their lab with a LIMS and data management system developed specifically to address gene expression and genotyping workflows and genomics applications. This will allow smooth data flow from one system to another with an integrating LIMS system that acts as the informatics backbone in one or multiple labs.
GenoLogics’ CEO, Michael Ball commented: ‘Our partnership with Illumina extends our network of strategic partners, building on one of our core differentiators.’
