Redwood City, CA – September 29, 2011 – Ingenuity® Systems, a leading provider of
information and analytics solutions for life science researchers, today unveiled its new
Ingenuity® iReport™ and will offer early access to 5,000 researchers. iReport is a
fundamentally new product concept from Ingenuity and provides the fastest way for bench
scientists to understand their „omics data.
Today bench scientists are faced with the difficult task of understanding their „omics
datasets and developing testable hypothesis. Current analysis software requires the use of
complex software, statistical know-how and informatics training. In contrast, Ingenuity
iReport is a stand-alone report that provides a fully integrated, one-step solution for
statistical and biological interpretation of an „omics data without the need for training,
software, statistics or informatics expertise. iReport takes raw „omics data as input and
delivers a customized and interactive report that enables researchers to focus on developing
biological insights through exploration and visualization of genes by function, biological
process, role in pathway and disease, and cellular location.
“The easy, interactive tools in iReport helped me quickly identify interesting new target
genes from my microarray experiment for follow-up,” stated Jun Yang, Ph.D., Instructor,
University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB). “The pathway information and
literature references in iReport gave me a lot of confidence in my results, and helped me
easily understand the biological role of the genes I was looking at. It?s beautiful interface
makes it an easy and compelling way to get faster, more meaningful biological insights from
“We created iReport for the experimental biologist,” said Megan Laurance, Ph.D., Biologist
and Product Manager at Ingenuity. “iReport is unique in how it explains and visualizes
experimental results in the language of biology and gets bench scientists to meaningful
insights faster than has ever been possible. We are excited to finally be able to put it into
the hands of researchers and help move their science forward.”
Ingenuity iReport for Microarray Gene Expression is the first in a suite of reports, that will
soon include RNA-Sequencing, qPCR, and additional „omics platforms. Researchers
