REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Jan. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ingenuity Systems, a leading provider of information and analysis solutions for life science researchers, today announced the general availability of Ingenuity® iReport™, a stand-alone report that provides the fastest way to get biological meaning from expression data. iReport provides a fully integrated, one-step solution for the statistical analysis and biological interpretation of gene expression data, eliminating the need for additional software, statistics, training, or informatics expertise. iReport supports both RNA-Seq and microarray gene expression data.
Priced at only $495, iReport is a small addition to the cost of an entire experiment, but offers some of the largest value. Researchers simply upload their data on the Ingenuity website and they will receive a link to their interactive, customized iReport that identifies differentially expressed genes, along with diseases, functions, biological processes, and pathways most affected by the experiment. Researchers can easily make sense of experimental data and identify genes for follow-up through the interactive exploration, visualization, and filtering of their genes. Results are supported by the Ingenuity® Knowledge Base, a manually reviewed repository of millions of biological and chemical Findings from peer reviewed literature and commonly used databases. iReport allows researchers to examine supporting literature evidence, take notes, share reports, export images for publication, and access a free preview before purchasing.
"The Ingenuity iReport is a great tool to summarize the global changes in gene expression under specific conditions," stated Sumit Punj, Postdoctoral Scholar, Oregon State University. "The clear and thorough depiction of the statistically robust results helped me to quickly identify my candidate genes of interest in context of a cellular pathway, process, or disease. Its intuitive design and simple tutorial allowed a new user like me to quickly orient myself to the report format, and within minutes I was comfortable navigating through the whole report. iReport accelerated the process of obtaining biological meaning from my microarray experiment."
"iReport is already delivering results to my clients," stated Russ Carmical, PhD, Core Lab Director, Assistant Professor Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. "Our typical clients don't have the time and or the background to become proficient with the commercially available software packages necessary for carrying out gene expression analysis. iReport streamlines the entire analysis pipeline, allowing us to deliver a very thorough and easy to understand report to our clients in a timely manner."
William Ricketts, Chief Scientific Officer, Ovagene Oncology, commented, "iReport was exceptionally easy to use and very visual, which let me quickly get to the biological meaning of my data rather than spending time dealing with complicated statistics. In a nutshell, iReport helped me see the biology that the statistics can often hide."
Ingenuity iReport is optimized for a series of instrument platforms and experimental objectives including microarray, RNA-Seq, qPCR, and additional 'omics platforms. iReport is available for purchase through a core lab or directly from Ingenuity.
