Biomedical Informatics Software Solution

GenoLogics is developing an integrated suite of biorepository and biomedical informatics products.

GenoLogics launched its Biomedical Informatics product suite as part of its holistic approach to providing translational research informatics solutions. The new product suite includes functionality to track observational studies, collect patient data electronically, provide biospecimen and clinical annotations management and allow researchers to query online. The suite is comprised of five integrated products, three of which are being deployed this year with the collaboration of early access customers.

The GenoLogics biospecimen management system, BioVault, handles sample and freezer management, with volume and aliquot tracking, access tracking and configuration options. It will be fully integrated with the clinical annotations management system, BioChronicle, which will aggregate data from multiple sources. A secure web portal interface for BioChronicle will allow researchers to setup study projects, query clinical annotations, request samples and receive clinical annotations.

A study management system to track enrolment, visits and study protocol for observational studies will also be developed as part of the total solution, along with an electronic patient questionnaire interface. The Biomedical Informatics product suite will interface with GenoLogics’ existing research informatics products for genomics, proteomics and other sciences.

‘It’s a natural evolution for GenoLogics to launch a complementary product suite that builds on the success of our science-purposed informatics solutions for life sciences organisations,’ said GenoLogics CEO, Michael Ball. ‘By providing two product suites of biomedical and research informatics we are able to provide our clients with a total solution, which is better aligned with their need to generate meaningful results from translational research initiatives.’
