Acquisition enhances firm’s data-analysis and visualization capabilities.
Geospiza expanded its product line with the acquisition of VizX Labs’ GeneSifter® Data Analysis software.
GeneSifter is a web-based microarray analysis system that combines data management and analytical functions for microarray experiments. Along with GeneSifter, Geospiza will continue to use its FinchLab™ workflow management and data-analysis system in next-generation sequencing.
“The integration of GeneSifter will accelerate expansion of our data-analysis capabilities and address the scientific community’s need for data management and analysis across multiple platforms. GeneSifter will expand our market by addressing the demand for sophisticated data analysis across microarray, capillary electrophoresis, and next-generation sequencing platforms,” says Rob Arnold, president of Geospiza.
