Qiagen launches new RNA-seq Explorer Solution

18th April 2016

Qiagen has announced the launch of RNA-seq Explorer Solution, a new tool for the analysis and interpretation of omics data from liquid biopsy-based research.

This new bioinformatics-driven approach integrates Qiagen's Ingenuity Pathway Analysis, Biomedical Genomics Workbench and other bioinformatics solutions to generate insights for research into the improved detection, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

With this tool, researchers can non-invasively use samples of body fluids such as blood to detect and profile diseases such as cancer at an early stage, resulting in more successful prognosis and treatment.

The solution is being demonstrated to attendees at the American Association for Cancer Research's annual meeting in New Orleans this week.

Dr Laura Furmanski, senior vice-president and head of Qiagen's bioinformatics business area, said: "Qiagen's streamlined RNA solution transforms raw data from liquid biopsies into valuable insights – a significant milestone for liquid biopsy analysis of indications such as cancer."

This comes after the firm recently announced that it will be partnering with Mirati Therapeutics to co-develop and commercialise a new companion diagnostic test.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801816784-ADNFCR
