How Mount Sinai Uses LIMS to Support Clinical & Research Genomics Workflows


Managing Director, Mount Sinai Genetic Testing Laboratory 

Applications Manager, Genomics, Core Informatics

Selecting and deploying a laboratory information management system is not a trivial task. This webinar discussed some of the criteria that the Mount Sinai Genetic Testing Laboratory used to develop and implement a highly configured LIMS for clinical and research genomics workflows in a high-throughput sequencing facility. 

Dr. Todd E. Arnold, Managing Director of the Mount Sinai Genetic Testing Lab, shared details of his team’s experience deploying a LIMS from Core Informatics. The Mount Sinai lab posed some unique challenges to the Core Informatics team, including a very large number of samples, stringent traceability requirements for CLIA and CAP compliance, research and clinical sample handling, a variety of input materials, diverse workflow elements, and the need to interface with multiple report templates. 

During the presentation, Dr. Arnold described his site, his team’s charter, detail around the implementation process, and the performance of the Core LIMS in his team’s hands.
