PierianDx Clinical Genomicist Workspace

PierianDx said that its Clinical Genomicist Workspace genomics workflow and analysis software now supports clinical microarray technology (CMA). CMA enhancements within CGW include workflow integration to submit processed microarray results from a batch of samples to generation of a templated report without user intervention; the ability to review, sort, and filter copy number variants (CNV) as well as loss of heterozygosity (LOH) segments and associated quality information; the ability to set laboratory-specific validation filters for CNV and LOH segments as well as specific panel- and case-specific filters; clinical interpretations that are automatically inferred in patient cases for review and editing; and an updated knowledgebase that includes published literature for articles that mention cytogenetic positions, genes, and phenotypes associated with a patient case.
