Software

PamGene developed 2 software packages which are installed on  the computer that comes with the instrument: Evolve (for running the instrument) and BioNavigator (for data analysis). BioNavigator enables easy data capture and analysis using built-in statistical tools, and uses simple drag-and-drop procedures to compare acquired data to existing external databases.

Training 

The PamStation12 instrument is installed by PamGene technical support staff, and validated on-site. Users are trained on application of the instrument, as well as use of the software packages. Additional training for new users and specific training on specific protocols can be provided separately, either on-site, online or at Pamgene's headquarters in the Netherlands.
