PREMIER Biosoft International Releases a Statistical Tool for Tissue Microarray Data Analysis
TMA Foresight is a statistical tool for tissue microarray data analysis designed especially for pathologists, clinicians and researchers.
PR9.NET January 16, 2007 - Palo Alto, California, PREMIER Biosoft International today announced the release of its new product, TMA Foresight. TMA Foresight is a statistical tool for tissue microarray data analysis designed especially for pathologists, clinicians and researchers.
TMA Foresight can be used for a wide variety of analysis ranging from simple descriptive statistics that include mean, sum, and variance to more advanced data correlation such as Hierarchical clustering and Kaplan Meier plots. You can explore the relatedness of prognostic marker expression and clinico-pathological variates with the outcome. Cox's Proportional Hazard analysis can be used for prognostic marker identification. Hierarchical clustering can be used to group patients on the basis of a clinico-pathological parameter or a biomarker. Kaplan-Meier plots and log-rank tests can then be used to identify prognostically significant clusters. You can threshold a particular marker and stratify patients into high risk and low risk cohorts.
TMA Foresight enables easy data pre-processing. It helps map the character data to numeric values with a click of a button. Moreover, the measurement level of each variable can be conveniently defined for use in different statistical analysis.
Says Kay Brown, V.P. Business Development and Marketing, "The tissue microarray market, is predicted to grow at 42% per year to over $163 million by 2008. We have designed TMA Foresight seeing the need for an easy-to-use specialized data analysis software tool."
