Sapio LIMS picked for genome centre

New York Genome Center has chosen Exemplar LIMS, by Sapio Sciences, as the primary lab management and electronic lab notebook (ELN) solution for it's laboratory operations.  

The LIMS system will initially track next-generation sequencing workflows from the Illumina family of sequencers from request through analysis. Support for additional next-generation sequencers will be added as needed.

Software will be deployed on Apple iPads using Exemplar LIMS for Tablets solution. This enables lab technicians to take the LIMS with them as they move around the laboratory, improving LIMS usability and lab technician efficiency.    

NY Genome Center will also be using Exemplar's Materials Management capabilities for detailed tracking of reagent usage. NYGC will ultimately be processing samples for both research and clinical applications via a CLIA-certified laboratory. Sapio's experience with implementing best practices for both research and clinical labs will accelerate the LIMS deployment in support of these NYGC objectives.

'The team at New York Genome Center has been impressed with the flexibility and scalability of Sapio's offerings,' said NYGC president and scientific director Robert Darnell. 'With Sapio we found an entrepreneurial partner that understands how important customer service and collaboration are to NYGC. We look forward to working with Sapio to design a solution for the genome centre of the future.'
