ELTA 90 and Euformatics have a shared vision to increase accessibility of geneticists in Eastern Europe to advanced NGS genomic data analysis platforms making a real impact to improve patient lives. Euformatics kit-agnostic technology will build the knowledge database – through ELTA 90 distribution – of clinical geneticists in variant annotation, classification interpretation and clinical reporting from any sequenced data.
Euformatics will use its expertise and ELTA 90 local network to expand the global reach of its products for clinical NGS data analysis, delivering novel automated solutions to diagnostics laboratories and university hospitals. To date, ELTA 90 has a successful history going back to its founding in 1999 providing in-vitro clinical diagnostic reagents and research equipment to customers in the East of Europe.
