Xifin LIS 5

Xifin has launched the latest version of its lab information system, the Xifin LIS 5. The software-as-a-service-based platform includes multi-specialty workflows for molecular and next-generation sequencing. It also includes universal image management, a digital pathology consultation function, and a feature to facilitate multidisciplinary care team coordination.

Updates to the system's existing NGS module provide more specimen management, user-defined workflow steps, and the ability to support multiple lab processes. The platform's enhanced clinical trials support system now provides a project-oriented workflow. An enhanced anatomic pathology module improves the speed and functionality of new specialty workflows for gynecologic cytology, urology, and GI applications. The molecular diagnostic and genomics workflows now support FISH, gene microarray, and PCR, as well as NGS pharmacogenomics testing.
