Lab 7 Systems' Clinical Annotation Manager Module
Lab7 Systems has added a new module to its enterprise platform (Lab7 ESP) for managing next generation sequencing data and workflows. The new Clinical Annotation Manager module is a data management and visualization tool that ties together third-party variant annotation databases with in-house annotations and allows clinicians to quickly build ACMG-style reports from their VCF files.
Lab7 also announced this week that it is launching a Clinical Sequencing Acceleration program that will offer small pathology labs that are just starting to integrate sequencing into their offerings an opportunity to test Lab7 ESP. Pathologists who participate in the program will have full access to the Lab7 ESP under preferential licensing terms for three years. The company is currently seeking a maximum of five labs to participate in the program. The company has also launched the Academic Sequencing Acceleration Program, an open-ended program that gives academic core labs an unlimited license to the Lab7 ESP at a fraction of the cost of the full commercial license.
