SANDBOX - Archer Analysis

Powerful NGS Bioinformatics

Archer® Analysis is a bioinformatics platform that performs automated processing of sequencing data generated from all Archer FusionPlex® (RNA), VariantPlex™ (DNA), Reveal ctDNA™, and Immunoverse™ (RNA) assays. This purpose-built software detects gene fusions, isoforms, single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), insertions/deletions (indels), copy number variations (CNVs) and expression patterns and provides visual, tiered results for accurate, clear mutation reporting. Analysis performs all secondary analysis, and many tertiary analysis step with annotations from Archer's Quiver™ fusion database<, as well as sources such as Ensembl VEP, Clinvar, and COSMIC.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

Automated & Intuitive

Archer Analysis uses sequencing data from either Illumina® or Ion Torrent™ sequencing platforms, automating analysis with no need for programming expertise. Your results are presented in an easy-to-read, high-level summary that shows all fusions, CNVs, variants and complex mutations detected in your sample.

Archer Analysis also cross-references the Archer Quiver database of known fusions and reports fusions that are already published in the literature so you can distinguish known from novel fusions in your sample.


Archer Analysis provides in-depth data analysis and interpretation, including:

Archer Analysis was designed not only for intuitive data analysis and reporting, but also to meet your lab's specific IT, security and cost requirements. There is full transparency, including detailed processing logs. The software is available to download and install on your own server, and also as a cloud-based service (SaaS) .

Fusion, SNV, Indel, CNV, Expression & Immune Repertoire

Immune Repertoire

High-confidence variant calls

Comprehensive call statistics & annotations

  • Highlight your known variants of interest with targeted calling
  • Location-specific noise characterization based on cross-sample (cohort) analysis
  • Statistical power metrics to drive true positive & true negative calls
  • Annotations to identify variants of clear biological significance

Customize Quiver with your lab's data

User-annotated true and false positives

You can now add your own findings to your private installation of Analysis, in order to make sure fusions of known interest are highlighted, and avoid the distraction of known false positives

Validation sets

Create your own tests for automated validation of Analysis installation or upgrade

Samples with known mutational status can now be identified across your private instance of Analysis, and grouped together as a validation set. At any time, these sets can be re-run to ensure Analysis is performing exactly to your lab's requirements.

Sample-centric workflow

Jump straight to samples you need to review

Analysis now has a sample-centric interface that allows for direct access to all samples, instead of having to navigate through jobs first. A faster way to work through your case load!

Quiver fusion database integration

Detected fusion events are verified against the Archer Quiver Fusion Database so you know right away if your fusion is seen in the literature. Direct link-out to relevant publications.

Powerful run statistics and tiered result reporting

Analysis and quality metrics help determine the quality of the library sequenced and the success of the assay

Application Programming Interface (API)

Automate workflows by integrating Analysis with LIMS & other software

A RESTful API is now built in to automatically pull data from Archer Analysis. The API meets industry standards, including packaging data in JSON format, and is a powerful feature if you have downstream software for annotation, interpretation, and reporting processes.

Flexible configurations to suit your lab needs

The demo site is now version 5.0

We have provided a public website which is a demonstration site for the Archer Analysis software ( This site can be used during the evaluation phase of the Archer products.

NOTE: We have moved the previous version to a different address ( The data that was loaded on the previous version of the software is still there, but is not available on the new site. The login information for the old site is also not migrated, so we recommend users to register a new login if they would like to use the new version.
