OmixLIMS Software Platform for Systems Biology Research
Product News Sep 07, 2005
GenoLogics Life Sciences Software Inc. has announced the formal launch of OmixLIMS as an enabling software platform for systems biology research.
OmixLIMS is designed to give laboratories focused on proteomics, genomics, transcriptomics and metabolomics research the ability to implement a lab information and scientific data management system on a common platform, facilitating experimental workflow management, scientific data integration, sharing, and analysis across the systems biology domains.
According to GenoLogics, this benefits the many organizations with research and core labs working in different scientific disciplines that need to share and integrate their scientific results, and optimize their research efforts for integrated analytics and biomarker discovery.
Michael Ball, CEO of GenoLogics notes “OmixLIMS is a key element of our strategy in how we address the needs of our customers who want to study disparate data across ‘omics’ disciplines.”
“Our customers tell us they want to store and share data across functional groups and have the ability to study this data in the same framework. ProteusLIMS™ is our solution for proteomics.”
“Based on our OmixLIMS platform, we are now developing specialized solutions for genomics, transcriptomics and metabolomics that will help our customers achieve their research goals.”
The OmixLIMS platform is a configurable and robust solution aimed at life science and biotechnology laboratories, allowing researchers to manage their lab information, provide sample tracking and experimental workflow capabilities, and ultimately capture, integrate, and manage large volumes of scientific data.
OmixLIMS is a scalable solution for managing many diverse research lab environments, while providing a unified informatics infrastructure for large research institutes and pharmaceutical/biotechnology companies.
The OmixLIMS platform was built using the latest Java programming technologies (J2EE – Enterprise Java) and OmixLIMS is designed to offer both a rich user interface for laboratory workstations, as well as a web interface for collaboration work.
“Labs want LIMS modules and analysis tools that are based on an open architecture with a common integrating platform that is highly configurable and specialized to each 'omics' technologies workflow,” said James DeGreef, VP Product Management.
“With our commitment to open systems and open data standards, OmixLIMS has been architected to be robust, configurable, and easily purpose-able to address the systems biology data management and integration challenges.”
