PerkinElmer has launched an integrated informatics suite of applications for creating a collaborative and integrated biology workflow, named Ensemble for Biology. In addition to delivering data management and organisation, streamlined workflows, effective collaboration and subsequent connection with downstream development, the platform fully supports regulatory compliance and protects intellectual property. It provides the tools needed for analysis, screening and visualisation, and incorporates the ability to search across experiments, compare multiple assay results and generate reports using drag-and-drop techniques, pre-made biology templates or templates created by researchers.
