Geospiza is a developer of software systems for the management of DNA sequencing, analysis services and laboratory workflows delivered through a Web-based secure cloud computing environment.

Geospiza’s current informatics offerings include GeneSifter Analysis Edition and GeneSifter Lab Edition.

GeneSifter Analysis Edition, a cloud-based data analysis product for microarray and next generation sequencing data, helps biologists readily incorporate sophisticated data management and computational analysis into their research efforts.

GeneSifter Lab Edition, a software platform supporting laboratory workflows, helps researchers get started immediately, and has flexibility to adapt to specific needs without custom programming.

PerkinElmer Emerging Technologies president Richard Begley said the acquisition of Geospiza, along with existing software in various diagnostic businesses, gives PerkinElmer a strong platform for offerings in nucleic acid testing.
