New York Genome Center Selects Sapio Sciences' LIMS to Manage NGS Workflows

Premium

Sapio Sciences said this week that the New York Genome Center has selected its Exemplar laboratory information management system to manage operations in its next-generation sequencing labs.

Sapio said that its system will initially track NGS workflows from Illumina instruments, but that it will add support for sequencers from other vendors as needed by the center.

Specifically, NYGC's researchers will use Exemplar to track reagent use and to process samples for both research and clinical applications in the lab, Sapio said.

The company isn't disclosing the terms of its partnership with NYGC.
