GATC Biotech announced today the integration of QIAGEN’s Ingenuity® Variant AnalysisTM solution to complement their InViewTM Human Exome, providing customers of GATC Biotech an integrated solution to analyse and interpret their exome sequencing data to identify causal variants.

“This new commercial agreement with QIAGEN provides our customers with access to QIAGEN's web-based software solution enabling rapid analysis and interpretation of next generation sequencing (NGS) data in terms of relevant genetic variations. We are eager to offer them a unique, fully integrated one-stop solution. This was the key motivator behind GATC Biotech choosing QIAGEN’s Ingenuity® Variant Analysis making this solution is a perfect match. Integrating this software tool with our InViewTM Human Exome product enables us to provide superior accuracy and ease of use for end-users like clinical and laboratory geneticists and other professionals investigating links between known mutations and rare diseases,” said Dr. Marcus Benz, Chief Operating Officer of GATC Biotech.

QIAGEN’s Ingenuity® Variant Analysis is a web-based software application quickly filtering genetic variants to identify those most likely to cause disease and providing researchers a powerful platform for efficiently evaluating data generated by high-throughput NGS technologies. It is built on the Ingenuity Knowledge Base, the most extensive manually curated, integrated repository of genomic information, scientific literature, and public databases.

“QIAGEN’s comprehensive portfolio of bioinformatics applications enables commercial service providers to deliver more compelling, accurate, and actionable results to their customers. We are pleased to partner with a leading sequencing service provider such as GATC Biotech.” said Jason T. Gammack, Vice President of QIAGEN Advanced Genomics and Head of Global Commercial Operations. “QIAGEN’s Ingenuity® Variant Analysis application will help GATC Biotech’s customers to quickly sift through millions of variants and identify causal variants based upon known relationships with pathways, genes, biological processes, and diseases.”

“Next generation sequencing has the potential to transform the market of human diagnostics. However, there is an urgent need for an optimised and scalable interpretation of clinical variants,” said Benjamin Moingeon, GATC Biotech’s Director of Sales. “In our efforts to provide customers the best possible service, this software tool will enable us to provide world-class data analysis for our InViewTM Human Exome product” he added.
