CollabRx And GeneInsight To Collaborate On Interpretation And Reporting Service For Clinical Genetic Sequencing

SAN FRANCISCO and BOSTON, May 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CollabRx, Inc. (Nasdaq:CLRX), a data analytics company focused on informing the clinical interpretation of molecular diagnostic testing, and GeneInsight LLC., a leading developer of software to support knowledge management and reporting for genetic testing laboratories, today announced an agreement to deliver a unique medical informatics solution to support the interpretation and reporting of genetic variants from sequencing-based tests.

CollabRx and GeneInsight maintain that their joint initiative is designed to establish a robust medical informatics solution to support genetic sequencing, interpretation, and reporting in the clinical laboratory. GeneInsight has been in use since 2005 and has supported the interpretation and reporting workflow for more than 30,000 clinical genetic tests across multiple diagnostic reference laboratories.

Under terms of the agreement, CollabRx medical and scientific content will be made accessible through the GeneInsight knowledge management platform. Initially focused on oncology, the combined offering will be available to the clinical laboratory market.

"We are excited to work with GeneInsight to provide a key medical informatics capability to the genetic testing laboratory market to accelerate adoption of next generation sequencing-based tests for cancer and beyond," said Thomas R. Mika, CollabRx Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our partnership with GeneInsight goes a long way towards enabling a truly integrated clinical laboratory workflow."

Organizing and clinically interpreting genetic sequence data is among the greatest challenges facing treating clinicians. The massive amount of information is overwhelming physicians and limits their ability to utilize genetic information to inform routine patient care, particularly for oncology. The combined offering in oncology will enable clinical laboratories to catalogue genetic variants from sequencing-based tests, and associate them with CollabRx's expertly curated knowledge on available drugs and clinical trials. Laboratories will have the option to incorporate this information into reports for treating physicians to enable increasingly informed treatment planning. Knowledge management, reporting and delivery of findings to ordering clinicians will be streamlined through GeneInsight's networked infrastructure, providing clinical laboratories the means to update physicians as knowledge evolves so they can effectively manage patient care.
