Sophia Genetics has acquired Interactive Biosoftware (IBS) for an undisclosed price, in a deal that adds the Alamut decision support software suite to the buyer’s portfolio of precision medicine technologies for hospitals.
Based in Rouen, France, IBS was founded in 2007 and has developed Alamut, which according to the companies is the most used decision support software for clinical genomic data interpretation.
Alamut Software Suite is a set of applications intended to annotate, filter, and explore genomic variations. The suite includes:
Alamut is being used by more than 450 hospitals, and according to Sophia is highly complementary to its SOPHiA AI clinical genomics technology, designed to assist healthcare professionals in diagnosing and treating patients.
“The addition of Alamut marks a big step in our aim to help clinicians better diagnose patients equally,” Jurgi Camblong, CEO and co-founder of Sophia Genetics, said in a statement. “With a community of now over 900 teaching hospitals using our technologies we are in a unique position to connect clinicians and enable them to share knowledge.”
Added André Blavier CEO & Founder at Interactive Biosoftware: “Interactive Biosoftware has been highly successful in providing powerful technology for experts with complex genomic interpretation needs. It is great to join SOPHiA GENETICS' unique approach and position to accelerate Data-Driven Medicine's adoption.”
