DNAnexus Launches Powerful Data Analysis and Management Solution for the NovaSeq™ Series of Sequencing Systems

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. & CAMBRIDGE, Mass.–()–DNAnexus, the global leader in genome informatics and data management, announced today the availability of the DNAnexus CloudSeq solution, a suite of cloud-based tools and professional services specifically designed to support the informatics infrastructure needs of the new Illumina NovaSeq Series of Sequencing Systems. The turn-key solution includes full access to the DNAnexus Platform, a fixed pricing model and on-demand cloud-enablement and bioinformatics support to help laboratories securely scale operations in as little as four weeks. DNAnexus unveiled the solution at its annual DNAnexus Connect user group meeting, taking place October 5-6 in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

“NovaSeq represents a major shift in the democratization of DNA sequencing. The economics that the instrument enables allows both sophisticated enterprise R&D organizations, as well as laboratories that are purchasing a sequencing instrument for the first time, to scale whole genome sequencing into workflows,” said Richard Daly, CEO of DNAnexus. “More than 30 percent of NovaSeq customers are new to sequencing or have benchtop-only instruments. With CloudSeq, customers can access all the benefits of a turn-key bioinformatics solution with fixed pricing as well as the flexibility to customize workflows and integrate muti-omics data, third-party analysis tools and LIMS systems.”

“DNAnexus has been at the forefront of scalable informatics for many years and has a keen understanding of the challenges both new and experienced sequencing labs face when deploying a powerful technology like the new NovaSeq systems,” said Jeffrey Reid, Ph.D., head of genome informatics at Regeneron Genetics Center. “DNAnexus has been an important partner in helping us navigate the complexities of integrating genotype and phenotype data in order to deliver improved insights to our leading R&D teams.”

The DNAnexus CloudSeq solution provides the industry’s most comprehensive security framework, which includes compliance in accordance with HIPAA, CLIA, GCP, and FedRAMP, among others. To learn more about the DNAnexus CloudSeq solution, please visit https://www.dnanexus.com/cloudseq.
