Festival News: Appistry launches Managed Services for next-generation sequencing clinical laboratories
In the run up to the Festival of Genomics we will be bringing you all the news from the show floor, and letting you know what our sponsors and exhibitors will be up to…
Appistry, a leading provider of solutions that simplify the analysis of next-generation sequencing (NGS) data, announced today a new Managed Services offering to help clinical laboratories accelerate the process with establishing and expanding NGS-based testing.
Clinical laboratories looking to establish or expand their NGS-based testing face considerable challenges in the development and execution of NGS data analysis. Appistry’s Managed Services accelerates and enables the analysis of NGS data by managing the set-up and execution of a complete analytics environment from sequencer through data analysis and data management.
“In speaking with clinical lab directors, we found they all face similar challenges in launching or expanding their NGS-based testing capabilities,” said Appistry CEO Kevin Haar. “The requirements of assembling a bioinformatics staff, configuring an IT infrastructure, and achieving regulatory compliance, result in a high overhead cost, long development process, and substantial delays in the lab’s ability to offer new or improved NGS-based tests. Appistry’s Managed Services reduce the resources, time and cost required by leveraging our deep expertise in bioinformatics, clinical informatics, high-performance computing, and data integration. What could typically take a laboratory months to build, Appistry can deliver in a few days or weeks enabling a lab to offer NGS-based testing quickly and cost-effectively.”
The new Managed Services offering complements Appistry’s software solution for NGS analysis, GenomePilot™, delivering an additional value add for laboratories that don’t have the in-house expertise or infrastructure. This comprehensive service can handle the bioinformatics development and set-up of a lab’s NGS testing, the implementation of a robust IT infrastructure, the build out of compliance tracking, and the deployment and integration with a lab’s internal systems.
