Ingenuity Systems and GeneInsight to Deliver an Interpretation and Reporting Workflow Solution to Clinical Laboratories
Date:3/19/2013

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. and BOSTON, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ingenuity® Systems, a leading provider of biomedical information and genomics analysis solutions, and GeneInsight®, a wholly owned subsidiary of Partners HealthCare and a leading developer of software to support reporting for genetic testing laboratories, today announced that they will collaborate on an integrated workflow solution, encompassing the annotation, analysis, assessment and reporting of human variants from sequencing-based tests. The ability to provide the clinical laboratory market with a seamlessly integrated workflow to support next generation sequencing-based tests takes a significant step forward with this collaboration.

The current bottleneck for clinical laboratories offering NGS-based tests is the interpretation and clinical assessment of the genetic variants found in each patient. With strong annotation and filtration tools, the interpretative process becomes more scalable for gene panel, exome and whole genome data sets. Through the combined offering, Ingenuity will provide content and software for the analysis and biological interpretation of variants from sequencing-based tests and the Ingenuity offering will be interfaced with the GeneInsight Suite. GeneInsight will provide genetic testing laboratories and providers with networked infrastructure to support interpretation, reporting, and management of genetic data. 

"The combined solution will incorporate knowledge about genomic variation from the Ingenuity offering with GeneInsight's knowledge management and reporting infrastructure, helping to streamline the overall workflow for very broad spectrum tests," said Heidi Rehm , PhD, Chief Laboratory Director, Partners' Laboratory for Molecular Medicine. "With the collaboration between GeneInsight and Illumina announced last fall, this truly integrated solution will go a long way towards making NGS-based technology more accessible in the clinic."

According to Doug Bassett , Chief Scientific Officer and Chief Technology Officer, Ingenuity Systems, "Clinical assessment of variants is all about the content—quickly and accurately evaluating relevant literature, databases and prior clinical observations to identify clinically relevant and actionable variants. The synergy of Ingenuity's extensive Knowledge Base of expert-curated clinical literature content with GeneInsight's knowledge management infrastructure and clinical reporting capabilities is a powerful combination for reference labs looking to streamline and scale variant assessment for sequence-based tests."
