GenoLogics Life Sciences Software, a leading provider of laboratory information management systems (LIMS), has announced the availability of three new cloud-based lab management products: Clarity Run Manager, Clarity Run Manager Plus, and the early access availability of Clarity LIMS Silver. These editions are sized and priced to fit any genomics laboratory's budget (including a no-cost version), with virtually instantaneous deployment. These editions provide sample management and workflow tracking to support the use of Illuminaor Life Technologies sequencing instruments or other genomics technologies.
The advent of desktop sequencing has allowed small and mid-sized labs to routinely provide sequencing services; however, until now there were limited options for project, sample, and lab activity tracking. While most lab managers and directors of these organizations would agree that they should have a LIMS for their next generation sequencing (NGS) tests or services, most do not have such a system due to the high-cost and complexity of traditional commercial tools and/or the lack resources for internal development, implementation and maintenance.
The three Clarity Cloud editions provide these organizations access to flexible price and feature set options that can grow with a lab, are easy to use by staff, and require no internal IT resources to configure, update or maintain. The products range in price from the no-cost edition, Clarity Run Manager, to the moderately priced wider LIMS feature set found in Clarity LIMS Silver edition.
"Scientists and lab directors want to improve the efficiency and throughput of their labs. They don't want to worry about managing technology resources or pay for software features they don't currently need," said Michael Ball, CEO of GenoLogics. "Providing these organizations with flexible, cloud-based offerings allows customers to protect their investments in instruments and reagents, as their labs grow."
