Adopting Cloud-based Software for Biospecimen Management
CloudLIMS.com has announced that The University of Sheffield has adopted CloudLIMS Lite, for managing their biorepository operations—by replacing their legacy spreadsheets—for recording biospecimen data.
The University of Sheffield is a globally reputed university renowned for its world-leading research. It is also a world top-100 university, that strives to solve society’s greatest challenges through its excellence, impact, unique teaching and distinctiveness for its research-led learning. With the implementation of CloudLIMS Lite, the Sheffield Biorepository is able to track biospecimens, their corresponding storage locations and associated data with ease. Using the cloud-based software, they are able to cut costs on IT infrastructure and personnel. Furthermore, they are able to streamline collaboration between members of the biorepository and external institutions.
Steven Haynes, Core Facility Manager at Genomics Facility, Sheffield Biorepository said: "With CloudLIMS Lite, we are able to load our legacy data of 200,000 samples rapidly using the software's universal uploader. The uploader directly maps our existing data to the data fields in CloudLIMS Lite. The data fields and our laboratory workflows are easily configurable, and allows for a quick, cost effective deployment!"
Arun Apte, Chief Executive Officer of CloudLIMS said: “The University of Sheffield selected CloudLIMS Lite after a rigorous assessment of their needs and available solutions. We came in at a time when the biobank had already tried out another LIMS solution which was unable to meet their needs. We not only met their requirements, we also delivered additional functionality that they were looking for. We look forward to supporting The University of Sheffield's vision of delivering life-changing discoveries."
The Genes That Make Quorn a Fungal Food FavoriteNews
The meat substitute Quorn is derived from a fungus called Fusarium venenatum. A very similar fungus, F. graminearum, is one of the world's most damaging crop diseases. A new genome study shows why one fungus makes food, and the other destroys it.READ MORE
Neural Computer Hears Like HumansNews
Modelling the human senses is an incredibly complex task. Our brains arrange cells into complex hierarchies that process information from our surroundings. Now, a group at MIT have created a model of the human auditory cortex that can hear sounds and music in the same way that humans do.READ MORE
Stable Beta-Amyloid Dimers Identified in Alzheimer’s BrainsNews
A recent study exploited state-of-the-art mass spectrometry to provide the first direct evidence of beta-amyloid dimers in patients with Alzheimer’s disease and points to the potential of these molecules as biomarkers. Beta-amyloid dimers may be the smallest pathological species that trigger Alzheimer’s disease.
