Sunquest Information Systems and Partners HealthCare Announce New Features to Advance Genome and Exome Testing

Release extends filtration, annotation and storage capabilities for complex genetic data

Tucson, AZ and Boston, MA —(PRWEB) —  Sunquest Information Systems Inc. and Partners HealthCare today announced the general availability of a new version of GeneInsight, a genetic information solution, to extend the system’s report generation and knowledge management capabilities to exome and genome testing.

Developed at the Partners HealthCare Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, a CLIA-certified molecular diagnostic laboratory, the new version of GeneInsight provides variant annotation and filtration capabilities that enable laboratories to scale their clinical genetic testing programs. With this solution, end users can efficiently sort through large numbers of variants and identify those that require in-depth analysis. These features not only streamline the workflow process of genetic testing and reporting, but also bring a highly scalable infrastructure that will enable laboratories to build their own local genetic knowledgebase and overall capabilities.
