GenomeDx Selects GenoLogics Clarity LIMS to Support Transcriptome Analysis

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – GenoLogics said today that GenomeDx has chosen to use the firm's Clarity laboratory information management system (LIMS) software to support whole transcriptome analysis workflows.

GenomeDx will use the cloud-based version of Clarity at its CLIA-certified San Diego laboratory to manage samples processed using the Decipher Prostate Cancer Classifier test. Clarity is built specifically for genomics labs and provides end-to-end sample tracking, automation, and preconfigured workflows and instrument integrations, GenoLogics said in a statement. The software also helps laboratories improve accuracy and turnaround time.

"We chose Clarity LIMS because it supports our laboratory quality assurance policies and it fits into our existing environment through use of the robust application programming interface," GenomeDx Chief Operating Officer Andy Katz said in a statement.

In August 2014, GenoLogics released a new version of the software, Clarity LIMS 3.1. In September, Illumina named Clarity as the preferred software for customers using its HiSeq X Ten sequencing platform.
