Eurofins GeneScan Technologies GmbH and UgenTec announced a collaboration on the development of assay plugins for Eurofins GeneScan Technologies’ portfolio of molecular biology kits on UgenTec’s real-time PCR analysis software platform, FastFinder.

In the collaboration, UgenTec will develop artificially intelligent software components for Eurofins GeneScan Technologies’ assays, called assay plugins - which are deployed into the FastFinder analysis software used in testing labs. The assay plugins will cover DNA extraction kits, the detection of pathogenic microorganisms and viruses as well as genetically modified organisms (GMOs), animal and plant species kits from the GeneScan portfolio.

FastFinder Analysis is a software module using artificial intelligence to support the analysis and interpretation of qPCR data. It allows diagnostic companies to standardize the way their assay is used in the field or by their service laboratories, making interpretation operator-independent and reducing time-to-result.

With FastFinder, laboratory end-users standardize their workflow on a uniform, online, device-agnostic qPCR software platform. For Eurofins, this ensures 100% reproducibility in testing workflows, while accelerating assay roll-out, simplifying support to laboratories, and providing customers with an integrated solution from raw data to report.

“The testing laboratories are facing a technical revolution, involving automation, robotics and integrated workflows.” said Nicholas Krohn, Managing Director at Eurofins GeneScan Technologies. “FastFinder allows us to combine a proven software platform based on AI technology with our own 25+ years of experience in the field of molecular testing, and offer our customers a unique solution in result interpretation and workflow optimization.”
