Genomic Vision Announces Early Access Program for a New Detection Suite Based on Innovative Artificial Intelligence Technology
BAGNEUX, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
Genomic Vision (the “Company” - FR0011799907 – GV), a biotechnology company that develops tools and services dedicated to the analysis and control of changes in the genome, today announced that it has initiated an early access program for FiberSmart™, a new suite to automate the detection and quantification of fluorescent signals on combed DNA.
Through innovations in imaging, machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI), FiberSmart™ significantly enhances the automated signal detection, segmentation, and classification with 90% detection sensitivity per coverslip in the Replication Combing Assay (RCA) and 97% sensitivity for Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) assay.
The suite was developed to enable high-throughput signal detection for the majority of molecular combing applications used by Genomic Vision customers. For example, in RCA, thecurrent specification shows that 70% of detections can be analyzed without any user intervention.
FiberSmart™ is poised to enhance workflow, offering, and the ability for molecular combing users to process more than 8 times the sample volumes. FiberSmart™ eliminates manual processes previously required in the first generation FiberStudio®.
Prior to commercialization, Genomic Vision enlisted the Fritz Lipmann Institute (FLI) in Jena, Germany as an early access site for FiberSmart™. Dr. Helmut Pospiech at FLI stated: “The new enhancements developed by Genomic Vision for the FiberSmart™ analysis package will help bring molecular combing to more researchers. Initial performance data shows the number of manual interventions required during the analysis, to be significantly reduced compared to FiberStudio®. This should improve both sample throughput and quality of the results. We are delighted to be an early access partner to confirm the usefulness and robustness of FiberSmart™ developed at Genomic Vision”.
Genomic Vision plans to complete early access through summer 2021 with commercial launch of FiberSmart™ planned for Autumn 2021.
Dominique Remy-Renou, CEO of Genomic Vision, added: “We are confident that FiberSmart™, our AI-based analysis suite will significantly enhance the molecular combing data analysis experience of our customers in FSHD and RCA markets. In parallel, we plan to leverage our enhancements with FiberSmart™ to target new high value markets as part of our aim to create end-to-end workflows for molecular combing, allowing us to broaden our product installation base”.
