Hospital for Sick Children selects data management solution
The Centre for Applied Genomics (TCAG) at The Hospital for Sick Children, Victoria, Canada, has selected GenoLogics to supply an an integrated lab and data management solution across multiple scientific facilities
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 an adaptive reporting engine in order to easily generate and share information with its customers.
