Bio-IT Processor


The World's Fastest NGS Analysis Platform

DRAGEN Bio-IT Platform

Enabling the Global Genomic Infrastructure

The DRAGEN (Dynamic Read Analysis for Genomics) Platform is based on the highly reconfigurable DRAGEN Bio-IT Platform. The DRAGEN platform uses a field-programmable gate array (FPGA) to provide hardware-accelerated implementations of genome pipeline algorithms, such as BCL conversion, compression, mapping, alignment, sorting, duplicate marking and haplotype variant calling. The highly flexible DRAGEN platform allows Edico Genome to develop custom algorithms as well as refine and improve existing pipelines.

The DRAGEN platform can be utilized onsite, in the cloud or as a seamless hybrid cloud that includes a fully functional and easy to use Web Portal and Workflow Management System. Customers are effortlessly able to schedule multiple workflow runs, analyze results such as alignment statistics and coverage metrics, compare different pipelines, monitor multiple networked DRAGEN systems and receive updated software releases. Updated versions are made available for customers through regular, simple remote downloads.
