BlueBee establishes data center in mainland China, expanding global coverage for its Genomics Data Platform
Rijswijk, The Netherlands: 9 October 2019 – BlueBee, a global bioinformatics solutions provider, has extended data operations to mainland China to serve genomic data processing needs in compliance with The Chinese Ministry of Health and Technology. This strategic move will serve existing and new BlueBee customers who integrate bioinformatic data solutions with their analytical instruments, omics assay technology or high-throughput laboratory services. BlueBee expects that this investment will result in mutual growth for BlueBee and its partner clients due to immediate demand from its existing customer base and projected growth of the Chinese genomics market.
Many geographical regions require that personal health information (PHI), which includes genomics data, and personal identification information (PII), remain within the regional border. Because of this, BlueBee continues to build its global infrastructure for omics-related health data. Currently the BlueBee Genomics Platform is enabled in over 50 countries, and beyond, in virtually any defined “region” on demand. Geographical regions that are enabled to date include: In Europe: France, Belgium, The Netherlands, England, Germany, Italy, Denmark, Finland; in the Americas: USA, Canada, Brazil; and in Asia Pacific: China, Australia, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan.
