"Claritas is a terrific example of how Ion Torrent's semi-conductor based technology is changing what's possible in sequencing," said Life Technologies' Head of Genetic and Medical Sciences, Ronnie Andrews, who worked with Claritas Genomics and Life's Enterprise Solutions Group to build a population-scale genetic analysis solution. "The speed at which Claritas has been able to bring up a high quality sequencing center is indicative of their operational excellence and the flexibility of the Life sequencing solutions. Less than a year after opening and they've been selected to champion one of the largest exome sequencing projects in the U.S. That's the kind of operational leverage the Life sequencing solutions with the Ion Proton™ Sequencer, Ion AmpliSeq™ Exome Kit and Ion Reporter™ Software bring to sequencing."
"Lockheed Martin is excited to be part of one of the largest genomics projects in the nation," said Glenn Kurowski, Vice President of health and life sciences for Lockheed Martin's Information Systems & Global Solutions business. "Information security, data management, and analytics at-scale are vital to this project; we are thrilled to be enabling engineering and IT in those areas for our team and the VA. We look forward to helping the VA with their goals of finding better ways, through genomics, to prevent, detect and treat disease for our nation's Veterans."
"We are pleased to be part of this very important project," said Everett Alvarez, Jr., Chief Executive Officer at Alvarez & Associates. "As a U.S. Military Veteran, I am proud of the fact that my company is able to serve those individuals who were/are willing to s
