Ingenuity Systems Launches Analysis Services

Redwood City, CA – August 5, 2008 – Ingenuity Systems, the leading provider of information solutions for life science researchers, today introduced Ingenuity Analysis Services, custom-tailored professional scientific services for scientists working with ‘omics data related to compound profiling, target identification, and mechanism of action studies. The new services are designed to meet the needs of research teams that require a rapid turnaround for a project, or who do not have the required resources internally.

Ingenuity Analysis Services was developed in response to demand from organizations that needed a trusted source for the analysis and interpretation of their ‘omics data sets. With more than ten years of experience in the life science industry, Ingenuity scientists have extensive expertise analyzing and interpreting data in accordance with industry best practices, and have the added advantage of utilizing the Ingenuity Knowledge Base for more reliable results.

“Ingenuity Analysis Services provides relevant and actionable analysis results quickly,” said Sean Scott, SVP Commercial Operations, Ingenuity Systems. “We are seeing an analysis outsourcing trend in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry because maintaining a fully trained and current analysis skill set in-house is not always the most efficient and effective way to get fast and high quality analysis results.
