Persistent Systems, a leader in software product development services, today announced that they are partnering and co-investing with Life Technologies Corporation, a global biotechnology tools company providing premier systems, consumables, and services in the molecular research and diagnostics space.

As part of the collaboration, Persistent will be investing along with the FSG (Fragment and Sequence Genomics) division of Life Technologies to build sequencing and fragment analysis software platform for capillary electrophoresis instrumentation that will be submitted for FDA clearance/approval. This solution represents an advanced genomic technology for clinics taking a step towards making personalized medicine a reality to combat critical human diseases like cancer.

Persistent Systems will be working with Life Technologies to develop an integrated interpretation software and hardware solution that will intelligently use sequencing technology to analyze patient DNA samples through advanced, user-friendly software. As a technology partner, Persistent Systems will also be providing services to integrate assays from third party vendors.

Today, molecular diagnostics is expanding beyond just the identification of infections and is recognized as an integral part of disease management and therapy. It is increasingly seen as the fastest growing segment in the in-vitro-diagnostics space with a market share predicted to reach 18% by 2014. According to Business Insights' report on "The Future of Molecular Diagnostics” the two important growth drivers for molecular diagnostics include the need for new biomarker assays as well as techniques and technologies that lower the cost per test, and which improve ease of use, data quality and turnaround time.

“Our partnership with Persistent Systems allows us to take the next step in developing molecular diagnostics solutions that leverage our gold-standard sequencing and fragment analysis technology” said Todd Laird, Vice President and General Manager of Life Technologies Fragment and Sequence Genomics Division.

“We are delighted to partner with Life Technologies in the personalized medicine and molecular diagnostics space,” said Dr. Anand Deshpande, Chairman and Managing Director, Persistent Systems. “We believe that molecular diagnostics is an essential step to move towards personalized medicine and is vital for the future of healthcare industry. The diagnostics market holds great promise in the coming years and we are excited to extend our technology expertise and support to develop applications that are critical for saving lives.”
