PREMIER Biosoft International Releases Version 2 of TMA Foresight, a Statistical Tool for Tissue Microarray Data Analysis.

Palo Alto, California -- May 16, 2007, PREMIER Biosoft International today announced the release of version 2 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, frequency count and variance to more advanced data correlation such as correlation analysis, 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. Principal Component Analysis can be used to analyze complex data sets with ease and correlation analysis can be used to measure the association of variables.

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. We have designed TMA Foresight seeing the need for an easy-to-use specialized data analysis software tool. Version 2 is equipped with a host of advanced statistical tools, designed for pathologists, clinicians and researchers."
