Genedata, a leading provider of advanced software solutions for R&D, today announced the availability of Genedata Selector for Biosafety, an innovative software platform enabling adventitious agent detection based on next-generation sequencing (NGS) data. The new offering allows for efficient management and analysis of all NGS data relevant for biosafety assessment, plus automatic report generation compliant with GMP workflows. From QC assay development to bulk lot release testing, Genedata Selector can manage and analyze NGS data from any sample including raw materials, cell banks, or bulk manufacturing lots.
NGS is an effective method for detecting adventitious agents due to its speed and ability to identify any nucleic acid contaminant that may be present. NGS also provides an additional level of biosafety assurance that can support traditional testing methods such as in vitro and PCR-based assays. Genedata Selector for Biosafety is the first-in-class commercially available software solution that supports this paradigm shift. Designed with a user-friendly interface, Genedata Selector supports the entire biosafety workflow from sample management, to automated NGS data analysis, and flexible reporting.
“With Genedata Selector for Biosafety, we have created a new and innovative solution for a critical aspect of the biopharma business,” says Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata. “Our collaborative approach of working with leaders in the biopharma industry shows our commitment to continuously provide innovative solutions for current challenges.”
Genedata transforms data into intelligence with innovative software solutions and domain-specific consulting services that automate complex, large-scale experimental processes and enable organizations to maximize the ROI from their R&D. Founded in 1997, Genedata is headquartered in Switzerland and has offices in Germany, the UK, Japan, and the US.
