LIMS

The company is integrating its newly purchased LIMS and genome interpretation and reporting capabilities to provide a single platform for cancer and inherited disease diagnostics.

Core Informatics has satisfied Good Manufacturing Practice, Good Laboratory Practice, and Good Clinical Practice guidelines for the cloud version of its product.

According to Sunquest, UniConnect's technology will augment its own existing solutions for molecular diagnostics.

The combined products will provide customers with a comprehensive solution for managing next-generation sequencing workflows in the lab.

The deal provides Clinical Genomics with a "cornerstone piece" as it readies its blood-based test for colorectal cancer recurrence for commercialization in the US later this year.

The company claims that its Lockbox LIMS is the first native cloud-based laboratory information management software system.

Tute will provide its cloud-based informatics and genome analysis platform to support two new NGS testing panels that NSO is developing.

Under the terms of the agreement, DNAnexus will make Sapio's LIMS software available on its genomics infrastructure.

Their combined offering will provide customers with a single solution for managing lab operations and performing sequence analysis and mutation identification.  

The company has added Biogen, Mount Sinai, and Thermo Fisher Scientific to its client roster and is exploring partnership opportunities with bioinformatics companies.
