August 6, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- Advanced Biological Laboratories (ABL) S.A., a Luxembourg-based MedTech company, announced it has added DeepChek®-HIV to BaseSpace Apps, Illumina's applications store and informatics community dedicated to advancing genomic analysis (see also Advanced Biological Laboratories ABL, S.A.).

DeepChek®-HIV is a downstream analysis software for Next Generation Sequencing which offers a software solution for deep sequencing of HIV, from detection of HIV drug resistance variants to a comprehensive bioinformatics solution that provides inferred levels of resistance to major HIV-1 antiretroviral drugs through a simple report.

"The availability of DeepChek®-HIV in Illumina's BaseSpace Apps is a new milestone for ABL's innovative company and the DeepChek® platform. DeepChek®-HIV allows researchers to generate comprehensive reports of HIV variants and their impact on inferred levels of resistance from the newly published HIV pipeline of ABL," said Dr. Chalom Sayada, CEO of ABL S.A. "We continue to develop new pipelines for virology, human genetics, bacteriology and oncology, including whole-genome analysis for HIV."
