Australian Cancer Center Licenses GenoLogics LIMS to Support NGS Workflows


Melbourne, Australia-based Peter MacCallum Cancer Center has licensed GenoLogics' Clarity laboratory information management system to support its next-generation and Sanger sequencing workflows, GenoLogics said this week.

Specifically, the center will use Clarity to maintain data integrity and manage its NGS workflows while adhering to regulatory requirements, GenoLogics said.

Andrew Fellowes, who heads molecular diagnostic development at the center, said in a statement that his team chose Clarity after reviewing other systems because of its ability to track patient sample data as well as to enforce clinical workflows.

He said the center will use Clarity's application programming interfaces to connect the new LIMS to its existing laboratory information system and also to its downstream analysis algorithms.

Other Clarity customers who are using the software to support their NGS workflows include Genomic Health (BI 2/22/2013) and Illumina's CLIA laboratory (BI 3/1/2013).
