Since launching in 2012, SnapGene has become established as the leading software solution for planning, visualizing, and documenting everyday molecular biology procedures. This software is a popular alternative to Vector NTI®, a Thermo Fisher® product that the company has announced will be discontinued.

SnapGene has a proven track record of providing a seamless transition for customers migrating their data from Vector NTI® Advance. The recent improvements make it easy for any Vector NTI legacy user to transition to SnapGene, even if they have many years of data. Will Stokes, Chief Software Architect at SnapGene remarked:

“Given the prevalence of Vector NTI in the marketplace, we have always prioritized making it easy for colleagues to use SnapGene and Vector NTI together while preserving their data. Upon the announcement from Thermo Fisher that support for Vector NTI would be discontinued, we enhanced the conversion of Vector NTI Advance files and databases in addition to adding support for converting from Vector NTI Express. As always, our focus is on providing a seamless user experience.”

More information about making the transition is available on SnapGene’s website.
