Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA and Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India, November 17, 2010: As a prelude to NASSCOM’s Product Conclave in Bangalore, 10 Companies were chosen to showcase new products at an exclusive interactive session with the media/blogger community. Of over 50 entries received, Ocimum Biosolutions’ new version of the ASCENTA® system was chosen in the top 10 to showcase its new features.
The ASCENTA® System has been providing a fast, easy, and affordable way to assess, prioritize, and qualify gene targets and potential biomarkers for over seven years. However, in a constant effort to provide better service, the interface is being upgraded from its current version 3.5 to 4.0 in December 2010. There is much to look forward for the research community in pharma, biotech and related academia from ASCENTA 4.0 as it comes fully loaded with more data and improved features that enhance user experience and yield better results.
