Fulgent Diagnostics to Implement Golden Helix's VSPipeline to Speed Analysis & Interpretation Process

Bozeman, MT (July 22, 2015) — Today, Golden Helix, Inc. announces their collaboration with Fulgent Diagnostics as they prepare to integrate VSPipeline into their current bioinformatics pipeline.

"We are looking forward to integrating VSPipeline into our bioinformatics and interpretation processes to further speed up our data analysis process," said Bill Scaringe, Director of Bioinformatics at Fulgent Diagnostics.

"VSPipeline is our next evolution in serving our clinical users," said Andreas Scherer, President and CEO of Golden Helix. "VSPipeline helps high throughput labs like Fulgent Diagnostics, to reach their growth goals by automating the entire tertiary analysis process, saving time and allowing them to scale to higher demands."

VarSeq software streamlines the process of annotating and filtering variants obtained from NGS pipelines, allowing both research scientists and clinicians to find variants of interest in a very efficient and straightforward manner. VarSeq simplifies the user interface and provides a scalable architecture featuring repeatable workflows, note taking, reporting, and filter parameter prototyping.

VSPipeline allows you to create workflow-encoded project templates which lock down quality control and filtering parameters, automating your pipeline and providing you with the requirements needed for CLIA and CAP certified analysis. Out of your automated pipeline will come fully produced VarSeq projects, ready for the technical and medical staff to jump into variant interpretation and reporting.
