LIMS

Agilent said the acquisition will enable it to provide consumers with a single informatics solution across laboratory and operational domains.

Sema4, spun out of Mount Sinai earlier this year, will standardize its two major labs on the Core Informatics Platform for Science as it looks to grow.

The firm will launch two new analysis modules for its Genetic Information Management Suite next year, in addition to a new pharmacogenomics mobile application.

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.
