Lion bioscience and PerkinElmer have launched SNPscorer, a dedicated software package for SNP genotype analysis. SNP scorer improves genotyping analysis with PerkinElmer's AcycloPrime-FP genotyping reagents and instruments.

This informatics tool complements the AcycloPrime-FP SNP Platform, which features comprehensive chemistries and instrumentation. The AcycloPrime-FP SNP Platform is based on the FP-TDI protocol. Using techniques familiar to every laboratory, it is simple, robust and cost-efficient.

Lion's software enables users to transform raw SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) data more quickly and easily into accurate genotypes. Lion's software automates genotyping analysis using cluster analysis methods, eliminating the previous manual process.

To increase research accuracy, Lion developed scoring functionality for PerkinElmer's SNPscorer, enabling users to assess genotype data by objective quality criteria. Lion's software also provides users with easy management of their results by allowing data to be saved in relational databases such as Oracle or Microsoft Access.

The package provides many user-friendly features such as manual editing, best model fitting, Hardy-Weinberg testing, and database connectivity. SNPscorer is suitable for researchers involved with SNP detection, genotyping and the area of pharmacogenomics.
