Enabling MDx and Clinical Labs
The Platform for Science for MDx and Clinical Labs
Thermo Fisher™ Platform for Science™ software provides extensive capabilities to genomics and next-generation sequencing laboratories looking for an information system to support their work in gene finding, gene expression and genotyping. The platform supports labs conducting biomarker, systems biology, gene therapy, translational research, and more. It unifies work across multi-site organizations by allowing end-users, performing different functions at disparate sites, access to the same data and the ability to view their colleagues’ work, with appropriate permissions.
Platform for Science software provides scientists a platform from which to gather, validate, store, retrieve, report, and analyze the vast amount of data required in genomics studies. The platform creates a unified repository for data, while protecting the data by only allowing access to users with valid permissions. This repository simplifies the reporting and analysis of genomics data, allowing analysts to understand the information they have gathered and apply it to full systems biology studies.
The system reduces bottlenecks in an organization by allowing for employee and instrument work scheduling, as well as by automating the collection of the huge amount of data inherent in genomics and next-generation sequencing studies. Platform for Science software aids genomics labs in their pursuit of improved early detection, prevention, and treatment of disease.
