Ingenuity, Life Tech Introduce Solution for Real-Time PCR Gene-Expression Analysis

iReport is optimized for TaqMan assays like Array Card and OpenArray file types.

Ingenuity Systems and Life Technologies are launching the Ingenuity iReport for real-time PCR optimized for TaqMan® gene-expression assays including TaqMan Array Card and OpenArray® file types. The solution is an interactive report that extends analysis beyond Ct or fold-changes to an accurate and dynamic view of the biological information most relevant to a gene-expression experiment, the companies explain.

“Ingenuity iReport for real-time PCR is the perfect complement to our industry-leading PCR portfolio,” says Chris Linthwaite, head of genetic analysis, Life Technologies. “Our Real-Time PCR products produce data that is highly sensitive and specific with a broad dynamic range and at a cost-effective price per data point.

“We have gone to great lengths to design a fully integrated marketing, e-commerce, and customer support experience to ensure that the combined real-time PCR iReport experience is as seamless and easy as the products themselves,” Linthwaite continues.

In contrast to time-consuming manual searches for relevant publications and gene relationships, Ingenuity iReport for real-time PCR provides a more rapid and comprehensive understanding of pathways, processes, and diseases relevant to gene-expression results, the firms add. Peer-reviewed literature is cited throughout the report, allowing the underlying evidence to be easily accessed and referenced.
