TCAG Taps GenoLogics for Lab and Data Management

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — The Centre for Applied Genomics at The Hospital for Sick Children is using GenoLogics' lab and data management system at the center's multiple facilities, the company said yesterday.

Toronto's TCAG will use the Geneus system in its genomics programs to support academic, government, and private sector scientists around the world.

Researchers at the center will use the system in the TCAG Microarray Analysis and Gene Expression Facility, DNA Sequencing and Synthesis Facility, Cytogenomics and Genome Resources Facility, and Genetic and Statistical Analysis Facility.

TCAG said it also is using the company's LabLink web collaboration tool and its adaptive reporting engine to generate and share information with its customers.

"We required a single LIMS that was flexible enough to automate data capture and workflows for each service provided, while still being able to integrate billing, reporting, and sample tracking across the entire operation", Steve Scherer, Director of TCAG, said in a statement.

In 2007, the hospital licensed GenoLogics' software for use in its stem cell research programs.
