InforSense and febit Announce OEM for Geniom Platform

febit Embeds InforSense Platform to Support Flexible Microarray Analysis

LONDON and CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - June 3, 2009) - InforSense Ltd., the leading provider of next generation business and scientific intelligence solutions, today announced that febit has integrated key components of the InforSense platform to provide the data analysis and visualization functionality in febit's new Geniom flexible microarray platform. febit has embedded the InforSense platform, workflows and visualizations and delivers them to customers with each Geniom instrument.

The InforSense platform provides rich data analytics and rapid application development capabilities. InforSense's VisualSense offers sophisticated, interactive web based visualization of scientific data. The Geniom platform from febit delivers a completely configurable microarray environment as well as a growing portfolio of catalogue biochips that accelerate research and reduce the associated costs. Key applications include targeted sequence capture prior to Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), as well as classical transcriptomic applications. When used together InforSense and febit enable a wide range of pharmaceutical and medical research customers to more effectively analyze and view their data to improve disease understanding.

"Geniom's microarrays are completely configurable if needed, requiring very flexible tools for quality control tests, experimental design, data analysis, and visualization," said Anthony Caruso, VP of Global Informatics at febit. "InforSense's strength lies in the speed and flexibility with which analytical applications can be developed, modified, and delivered to end-users. Our applications require a platform with the ability to handle massive amounts of data, which can then be boiled down and presented in manageable size pieces to our end-users. Developing on the InforSense platform has enabled us to focus on the bioinformatics and computational algorithms, which are core to our business."

"Geniom is accelerating the pace of research by delivering a fast and flexible process for defining and analyzing microarrays. We are delighted that febit have chosen InforSense software as a key component of this groundbreaking product," said Nick Goode, VP Marketing and Alliances, InforSense. "One of the strengths of the InforSense platform is the ease with which our technology can be embedded within other products from scientific equipment to healthcare instruments and reporting. Scientific and health-related data analysis and visualization continues to be our core market and we are seeing increasing interest in companies who wish to incorporate our capabilities into their products."
