Software experience & technologies
Almac Diagnostic Services has been delivering custom software solutions for Biopharma clients for over 10 years. The biomarker software team is co-located in the UK and USA.
Our software solutions focus around automation of data processing, filtering targets of interest, quality control assessments, assessing analytical run validity and facilitating patient test reporting outputs. We work closely with clients to identify and refine key requirements at an early stage and tailor our solutions to meet their exact needs, whether this is biomarker software for RUO (Research Use Only), CTA (Clinical Trial Assays), or CDx (Companion Diagnostics) whilst adhering to appropriate regulatory standards.
We have extensive experience in developing software reporting solutions for quantitative gene expression assays using technologies such as microarray, qPCR, Nanostring, RNAseq and qualitative DNA assays based on NGS. We also have demonstrable experience in developing reporting software that integrates with upstream analysis pipelines hosted on cloud-based servers.
