QIAGEN Clinical Knowledge Base

Empower your clinical testing lab with the industry’s most expansive collection of up-to-date biological and clinical findings, spanning across 40 public and proprietary databases and delivering two decades of human-certified and AI-powered curation.

Conquer information overload

The era of next-generation sequencing (NGS) has resulted in an explosion of genetic data and discoveries. Each year, the scientific research community publishes more than two million peer-reviewed articles—a trend that first started in 2012 (1).  This means the world’s genomic knowledge is not only growing, but constantly changing.

The QIAGEN Clinical Knowledge Base helps you stay informed and up-to-date given the exponential growth of literature and continual change in clinical trial availability and therapeutic options. 

Over 20 years of expert curation

Understanding QCI Interpret’s manual and AI curation

For over two decades, QCI Interpret, QIAGEN’s clinical variant interpretation and reporting software, has combined the unmatched accuracy and consistency of QIAGEN’s proprietary expert (MD/PhD) curation with the superior efficiency of machine curation (AI-powered curation) to enable high-confidence variant interpretation and reporting.

In its latest release, QCI Interpret advances its curation approaches with cutting-edge AI content extraction for thousands of rare disease genes to provide complete bibliographic coverage of the clinical exome. Therefore, with this new feature, QCI Interpret customers receive human-certified content for more than 1,000 routinely tested genes that QIAGEN’s curation team monitors daily and AI-derived literature references for the remaining genes in the clinical exome to supplement QIAGEN curated content. This not only affords significant time-savings in the prioritization, assessment, and interpretation of clinically relevant variants, but ensures diagnostic labs have access to complete and trusted evidence as they onboard and deploy larger gene panels.
