The Bina Genomic Analysis Platform makes genome analysis cheaper and faster for researchers and scientists.

Bina Technologies is testing out their Bina Genomic Analysis Platform in college campuses. The Bina Genomic Analysis Platform is a machine that can perform complex whole genome data analysis in four hours or less. It’s like a vending machine for scientists.

Analysis of genomes, which contain an organism’s hereditary information, and exomes, a portion of the genome, is an important part of a scientist or researcher’s work in the field of personalized medicine, and the process normally takes time and requires expensive equipment that not all researchers have easy access to.

Bina’s Genomic Analysis Platform makes the process faster and less expensive. The machine was first launched in April 2012 and the company has added a Whole Exome application and Bina On-Demand offering to the machine.

Exome analysis has long been popular because it costs less than whole genome analysis and it involves looking into the part of the genome responsible for most common genetic diseases.

The Whole Exome application of the Bina machine means that exome analysis becomes less expensive and accessible to more researchers and scientists. The machine can help speed up the studies on common disease types and gene mutations.

The Bina On-Demand offering will provide users with a pay-as-you-go type of service, making it easy on the research or department budget. Multiple researchers or teams can have separate Bina accounts and pay only for their usage of the machine.
