Deploying an NGS LIMS for Complex Research and Clinical Environments


Project Manager, Sample Receiving and LIMS Development, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Center for Molecular Oncology & Integrated Genomics Operation

This webinar highlights how next-generation sequencing labs can deploy laboratory information management systems to meet the challenges of complex workflows and sample tracking in both research and clinical environments.

Our speaker, Katelynd Vanness, LIMS manager for Memorial Sloan Kettering's Integrated Genomics Operation, discusses why LIMS configurability and adaptability is critical to a successful LIMS project and how Exemplar LIMS from Sapio Sciences aligned with their goals.

The MSKCC team was seeking the ability to retain a large degree of flexibility in its LIMS along with the need to create complex workflows on the fly as research needs change. Katelynd Vanness will discuss the complex challenges that this posed to the rollout of a LIMS within the core laboratory, as well as example pipelines implemented in Exemplar LIMS that addressed these requirements.

The talk also briefly covers how the MSKCC Integrated Genomics Operation maintains two separate instances of the LIMS, one of which is CLIA (HIPAA) certified, and how both Exemplar systems interface with many other systems within MSKCC.
