Ambry Genetics Signs Agreement With SoftGenetics

To provide extended bioinformatics support for sequencing projects

By CBR Staff Writer

Ambry Genetics has signed an agreement with SoftGenetics to provide extended bioinformatics genomics services using SoftGenetics’ NextGENe software for sequencing projects performed at Ambry.

Anja Kammesheidt, CSO of Ambry, said: “Our team at Ambry has been providing genomics solutions on Illumina’s Genome Analyzer platform for 2 years now. In light of diversifying applications, increasing project sizes, and new genomes to be explored, having a proven and innovative partner for bioinformatics is key.

“While some of our clients are interested in performing their own analyses, others are asking for extended support. We have been impressed with SoftGenetics’ software tools, as well as their approach to take care of the clients’ needs which is very much in line with Ambry’s philosophy. We are looking forward to working together to provide tailored services to our clients.”

Jonathan Liu, VP of research and development, said: “The SoftGenetics/Ambry partnership provides a new strategic alliance that will not only provide a single streamlined source for next-generation sequencing researchers but will also provide SoftGenetics with a deepened vision of future researcher requirements, allowing NextGENe to remain at the forefront of next-generation sequencing software.”

John Fosnacht, VP of sales and marketing at SoftGenetics, said: “This alliance provides researchers wishing to utilise the power of sequencing a distinctive value proposition by combining the technical quality of Ambry Genetics sequencing with the analysis capabilities of NextGENe without the heavy investment typically required in sequencing instrumentation and bioinformatics. We all believe this as a true win-win situation for everyone.”

Ardy Arianpour, director of business development and genomic services at Ambry Genetics, said: “The sequencing services are valuable to any scientific researcher if you can offer a full menu for bio informatics support. Ambry Genetics has become the genomics community’s one-stop service shop for next-generation sequencing services. We can handle large projects and we can offer the most robust data analysis through the exclusive alliance with SoftGenetics.”
