The Hospital for Sick Children Research Institute has chosen GenoLogic’s Geneus software to manage their genomics workflows.
The LIMS package, specifically designed for genomics applications, will be used by the Toronto-based research facility to assist will be used to assist will collaborative stem cell research across nine labs. Once an early version of Geneus is installed by June this year, it will be used to handle microarrays, flow cytometry, and RNA preparation.
Dr Cynthia Guidos, lead investigator at the Hospital for Sick Children Research Institute, commented: 'Using this technology we expect to see operational efficiency gains between our lab and nine other collaborating labs, and improved project and sample tracking management.'
The institute purchased Geneus using funding from Genome Canada.
