Enterprise solution

CLC bio provides several solutions for building and managing a modern and efficient enterprise-wide bioinformatics platform in organizations of any size; from the small biotech start-up to the large pharmaceutical or agricultural company.

The core of CLC bio’s enterprise solution is our three-tier client / server / database solution offering CLC Genomics Server, CLC Science Server and CLC Bioinformatics Database.

Integration of existing bioinformatics tools, algorithms, and databases with the CLC Server solution is easily carried out using our Software Developer Kit (SDK). The SDK is Java based and so simple that many of our customers carry out the integration work themselves. Others are assisted by us in the process.

CLC Genomics Machine

Our turnkey solution, for small research labs. It includes CLC Genomics Server and CLC Genomics Workbench. Everything is preinstalled on a powerful desktop computer or server blade – ready to plug-in and run from the day it is delivered.

CLC Genomics Factory

Our turnkey solution for medium and large research labs that needs a complete IT infrastructure for their NGS data analysis.

Software that fits your exact requirements

Our modern and flexible IT architecture makes it fast and easy for us to develop customized workbenches. Examples could be:

  • Customizing the workbenches to your laboratory workflow in order to increase your speed of work
  • Specialized primer design tools, enabling better planning of lab experiments
  • Fully integrated searches in your own local databases, reducing tedious manual work
  • Individualized HMM based analysis, resulting in more precise scientific results
