Genedata has announced that IntelliCyt, Labcyte, Nanion Technologies, and Thermo Scientific have signed on as the first four partners to its new Genedata Screener Ready-to-Run programme for turnkey integrations.
Ready-to-Run integrations are instrument-specific, versioned, tested, and maintained by Genedata with the support of the respective instrument companies, and provide researchers with a fast and systematic way to import raw measurements from cutting-edge screening instruments.
With Ready-to-Run integrations, researchers select the plate results in which they are interested and Genedata Screener conducts the data analysis. Accessing raw instrument data in this manner eliminates time formerly devoted to manual file transfer, increases the power of analysis by importing meta-data, and ultimately gives scientists a better understanding of results.
The Genedata Screener data import APIs enable integration with virtually any plate-based screening instrument, including fluorescence readers, automated high content imagers, and automated patch clamp devices. The open integration capability is now standardised, with specific integrations of Genedata Screener for instruments from vendors including IntelliCyt, Labcyte, and Thermo Scientific. Such integration versions are maintained by Genedata as part of its standard software licensing agreements.
