Variant Reporter software is designed to accelerate the analysis of genetic variation data. The Variant Reporter Software reduces manual review time of these data by automating the detection of genetic variants and streamlining the data analysis process. Applied Biosystems expects that the software can reduce by up to half the time currently required to evaluate genetic variation data generated during medical sequencing projects.
BioTek Instruments has developed, in partnership with Immucor, an automated benchtop assay instrument for use in the blood transfusion industry. Manufactured by BioTek exclusively for Immucor, the Galileo Echo provides small to medium sized hospital blood bank laboratories with walk-away automation of tests such as ABO grouping and Rh (D) typing, detection/identification of IgG red blood cell antibodies, compatibility testing and red blood cell phenotyping for significant increases in productivity and patient safety while taking less time than other methods.
