Applied Biosystems and Geospiza Announce Collaboration for Life Science Laboratory Management Solution

11-Feb-2005

Applied Biosystems and Geospiza, a leading developer of software for managing the production, analysis, and distribution of DNA sequencing information, announced a joint collaboration agreement to develop and market a joint informatics platform that is expected to dramatically improve productivity and enable greater connectivity between multiple instruments and data sources within Life Science laboratories.

The two businesses have begun work on creating a unique and flexible platform that integrates Applied Biosystems' LS*LIMS(TM) Software with Geospiza's Finch Suite. Geospiza Finch Suite software system increases productivity and efficiency of sequencing labs by integrating and automating sequencing workflows. The integrated platform is expected to give research laboratories the ability to create streamlined solutions for the increasingly complex challenges associated with producing, storing, and analyzing large volumes of DNA sequence data. As part of the collaboration, Applied Biosystems will also become a worldwide reseller of Geospiza's Finch System software to help bring increased productivity to Applied Biosystems' customers worldwide.
