Integromics was a global bioinformatics company headquartered in Granada, Spain and Madrid. The company had subsidiaries in the United States and United Kingdom , and distributors in 10 countries.[citation needed] Integromics specialised in bioinformatics software for data management and data analysis in genomics and proteomics. The company provided a line of products that serve the gene expression, sequencing, and proteomics markets. Customers include genomic research centers, pharmaceutical companies, academic institutions, clinical research organizations, and biotechnology companies.[citation needed]

Integromics was acquired by PerkinElmer in 2017.[1]


Integromics collaborated with international technology providers such as Applied Biosystems, Ingenuity, Spotfire, pharmaceutical companies, and academic institutions.[2][3][4][5][6]

  • RESOLVE. Resolve chronic inflammation and achieve healthy ageing by understanding non-regenerative repair[7][8]
  • LIPIDOMIC NET. Lipid droplets as dynamic organelles of the fat deposition and release: translational research towards human disease. It is managed within the EU FP7, in close collaboration with LIPID MAPS[9] and Lipid Bank.[10][11][12]
