January 2015—Claritas Genomics and NextCode Health announced a strategic partnership bringing together pediatric medicine and sequence analysis. Claritas Genomics, affiliated with Boston Children’s Hospital, is a CLIA-certified clinical laboratory serving the DNA-based diagnostic testing needs of children’s hospitals.
NextCode will enable Claritas to speed the delivery of genetic test results for children and support building a connection between research and clinical care. Using NextCode’s database architecture, Claritas can build a centralized, cloud-based variant database to help solve tough cases and discover new disease genes.
Claritas and its researchers have developed more than 100 validated tests for single genes associated with pediatric disorders as well as dynamic whole exome-based tests. These tests have been integrated into NextCode’s clinical interface, enabling the Claritas team to use the available proprietary and public data integrated into the NextCode system. This informs the creation of clinical reports for delivery to ordering clinical providers and families.
