Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) March 25, 2014
Bina Technologies, the standard for high-performance genomic analysis, today introduced Bina Desktop, a brand new deployment of its genomic analysis platform, Bina Analytics. Designed especially for clinical and academic researchers, Bina Desktop analyzes large, complex Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) data sets quickly, easily, and accurately, without requiring a team of bioinformaticians, and at a fraction of the cost.
The integrated desktop system, small enough to fit under a scientists’ desk, performs the same complex Whole Genome, Whole Exome, targeted gene panels, and RNA-Seq analysis as the trusted Bina Enterprise, formerly known as the Bina Box. Researchers and scientists using Bina Desktop can still rely on the accuracy, scalability, and completeness that Bina is known for without the need to invest in large bioinformatics or IT infrastructure. With simple, powerful tools, Bina Desktop democratizes personalized medicine research, allowing researchers to focus on their science, not the computing.
“Individual researchers studying a single disease, or working with relatively small sample sizes are hard pressed to do quality NGS analysis with the tools that currently exist,” said Narges Bani Asadi, CEO of Bina Technologies. “We’ve reached a tipping point in personalized medicine -- the research is becoming increasingly mature, but the data analysis is lagging behind. To cure cancer, to develop new life saving drugs, to unlock the causes of hereditary disease, researchers need the highest performing, most accurate, tools in the industry. We’re thrilled to introduce Bina Desktop to equip these researchers with an affordable and flexible tool for the accurate, easy-to-use and complete analysis they need.”
By incorporating the best-in-class algorithms of the Bina Analytics workflows, Bina Desktop provides the most comprehensive and accurate sequencing analysis available, including detection and analysis of Single Nucleotide Variants (SNVs), small insertions and deletions (Indels), larger structural variants (SVs) including copy number variants (CNVs), whether these mutations reside in the germline, or arise somatically.
Bina Desktop also offers automated software upgrades, flexibility, an intuitive user interface, and results in hours, instead of weeks.
