Personalis Taps Genologics' LIMS to Support Genomic Services Offerings


GenoLogics said recently that Personalis has licensed its Clarity laboratory information management system to support its genome services offerings for researchers and clinicians.

In a statement, Christian Haudenschild, Personalis' laboratory director, said that his firm selected Clarity LIMS because it could be deployed internally quickly and also because it allows his lab to meet regulatory requirements. For example, it provides capabilities for things like tracking sample names, reagent lot numbers, and users, he said.

Furthermore, "the capability to create our own data fields and customize what users will see on their respective interfaces is also extremely useful for us," he said.

Financial details about the transaction were not disclosed.

Other Clarity customers include Melbourne, Australia-based Peter MacCallum Cancer Center, which licensed Clarity to support its next-generation and Sanger sequencing workflows (BI 3/15/2013).
