Mount Sinai Taps Sapio's LIMS to Support NGS Workflows

Premium

Mount Sinai Medical Center has selected Sapio Sciences' Exemplar laboratory information management system solution to track and manage next-generation sequencing workflows run in its genomics core facility.

Sapio said that the Exemplar LIMS will, among other things, let users submit samples online and track the sequencing process. It also initiates primary data analysis after sequencing is complete and keeps users updated on the progress of the analysis. The system also generates and passes on billing information to Mount Sinai's financial system.

Other Exemplar LIMS customers include the New York Genome Center which is also using the software to mange its NGS workflows (BI 2/15/2013) and Johns Hopkins University where researchers in the epigenetics arm of its Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences are using the tool to manage lab samples and sequencing workflows (BI 10/7/2011).
