GenoLogics today announced that The Centre for Applied Genomics at The Hospital for Sick Children is deploying its lab and data management solution across multiple facilities of its genome centre.

 

The Centre for Applied Genomics (TCAG) is dedicated to conducting and promoting groundbreaking research in genomics in support of academic, government and private sector scientists worldwide. The GenoLogics solution will be deployed for TCAG’s Microarray Analysis and Gene Expression Facility, DNA Sequencing and Synthesis Facility, Cytogenomics and Genome Resources Facility and Genetic and Statistical Analysis Facility.

 

“We required a single LIMS that was flexible enough to automate data capture and workflows for each service provided, while still being able to integrate billing, reporting and sample tracking across the entire operation“, said Dr. Steve Scherer, Director of The Centre for Applied Genomics. “The solution from GenoLogics was the only one with proven capabilities to integrate data across the multiple platforms we use, while also meeting our need to effectively and efficiently serve customers around the world.”

 

Since Geneus is designed for the unique needs of genomics core facilities, the lab and data management solution can be deployed quickly to provide TCAG with immediate value. Pre-configured integrations to more than 20 of the instruments in use at TCAG means Geneus will improve efficiencies, data quality and workflow management for the entire operation. TCAG is also deploying GenoLogics’ web collaboration tool, LabLink, and adaptive reporting engine in order to easily generate and share information with its customers.

 

“GenoLogics has invested considerable resources in working closely with leading instrument vendors such as Illumina, ABI and Affymetrix to ensure our informatics platform is tightly integrated with multiple instruments,” said Sal Sanci, VP of Product Management for GenoLogics. “Our capability to provide organizations such as TCAG with an end-to-end, lab and data management solution is because we are exclusively focused on serving the unique needs of life sciences research.”

 

GenoLogics provides research organizations with informatics solutions for multiple sciences such as genomics and proteomics. Delivered as a set of modules on a common informatics platform, our solutions manage operations across multiple facilities, while integrating research data and providing superior sample traceability. When deployed with our automated bioinformatics pipelining system, GenoLogics solutions for discovery labs transform data into results and enable analysis.
