Illumina Inc. (Nasdaq: ILMN) Thursday announced the full commercial availability of BaseSpace, the San Diego company’s genomics cloud computing and storage platform.
BaseSpace Apps is now out of beta status and includes a full-fledged e-commerce system that allows customers to quickly and easily purchase Illumina and third-party bioinformatics applications. BaseSpace e-commerce transactions are based on BaseSpace iCredits, a medium of exchange that can be purchased and spent within BaseSpace.
BaseSpace has rapidly become a valuable platform for bioinformatics app developers. During the beta period, users launched individual BaseSpace apps more than 4,000 times. Now, with BaseSpace iCredits, developers can easily add e-commerce functionality to their apps, leveraging Illumina’s complete payment solution.
Through the BaseSpace ecosystem, a diverse collection of new apps are now available for Illumina’s MiSeq and HiSeq systems. Elsevier Publishing, a publisher of scientific and health information, has released a BaseSpace app that enables users to submit data directly into the peer-review publication process.
