Gentris Corporation Partners with BioFortis, Announces New Vice President of Information Technology

MORRISVILLE, N.C., Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gentris® Corporation (, a global leader in pharmacogenomics and biorepository solutions, announced today that it has partnered with BioFortis to integrate its Labmatrix™ and Qiagram™ software into Gentris' laboratory operations. The Labmatrix™ and Qiagram™ software will provide an advanced platform for clients to view and manage samples housed in the Gentris biorepository, while simultaneously enhancing their ability to collect, harmonize, and integrate multiple data sources, e.g., clinical, molecular, patient, and biospecimen data. In addition, Gentris has recently hired John Doyle as Vice President of Information Technology to lead the implementation of BioFortis' solution. John brings with him over 25 years of experience at IBM, which he will leverage as he continues to grow and enhance Gentris' IT infrastructure.


BioFortis is a leading provider of web-based, enterprise-class, scientific intelligence solutions for clinical and translational research. Its Labmatrix™ and Qiagram™ software were created to integrate and query disparate data from multiple sources including biomarker, translational, clinical, and healthcare data sets. This highly flexible platform allows for the seamless aggregation and exchange of existing and new data sets, making it accessible to multiple stakeholders. By combining Labmatrix™ ability to facilitate more efficient and effective analysis of scientific data across an organization with Gentris' biobanking and genomic biomarker services, the two companies can help pharmaceutical and biotechnology sponsors accelerate translational research and advance the application of personalized medicine to improve patient care.

"We are extremely excited to have the opportunity to partner with a cutting-edge company like BioFortis," said John Doyle, Gentris Vice President, Information Technology. "One of the biggest hurdles for large pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies looking to capitalize on the potential of genomic biomarkers and personalized medicine is the inability to integrate distributed data sources, legacy systems, and different data-types. Together, Gentris and BioFortis can help clients better manage their clinical samples, seamlessly incorporate genomic testing, and most importantly, effectively and efficiently convert the tremendous amount of data they collect into actionable information."

John Doyle was hired as Vice President of Information Technology to drive the evolution of Gentris' IT infrastructure and lead the implementation of the Labmatrix™ and Qiagram™ software. John served as a programmer at IBM for 14 years assuming increasing responsibilities before transitioning into a software engineer role in 2001. He has extensive experience in all phases of the software development lifecycle including the design, configuration, deployment, and implementation of Java Enterprise systems. Under John's leadership, Gentris will continue to improve its IT systems and infrastructure in order to meet client demands and expand the company's informatics and bioinformatics capabilities. John received his Bachelor's of Science degree in Computer and Information Science from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania. He received his Master's of Science degree in Computer and Information Science from Villanova University.
