Munich, Germany, April 27th, 2012 - Genomatix is proud to announce that it has been awarded the "INDUSTRIEPREIS 2012" in the biotech category at Hannover Messe, the world's biggest technology trade show. The INDUSTRIEPREIS is awarded in 14 categories to companies for products of a high technological, economic, ecological or social value. Nominees and winners are chosen by a panel of 30 experts including professors and specialized journalists. Genomatix has received the INDUSTRIEPREIS for its data analysis and interpretation platform Genomatix Genome Analyzer (GGA).
"We're really proud to have received this award for a data analysis solution", says Dr. Korbinian Grote, product manager at Genomatix. "Usually the focus on big technology fairs is more on lab equipment providers, in our field the sequencer manufacturers stand out with ever new records of gigabases of DNA data they can produce. But researchers also need solutions to analyze and interpret these data to extract the information from it and generate new biomedical knowledge." "Being appreciated for our data analysis solutions is certainly a big motivation for the whole team to come up with even more innovative ideas on how to deal with the increasing deluge of Next Generation Sequencing data", adds Dr. Martin Seifert, CEO of Genomatix, "getting an award that explicitly rewards products of technological and social value underlines that NGS is quickly moving from a research tool into the broader field of clinical application."
