GenoLogics Releases Clarity LIMS X as Part of Illumina SeqLab
News Jul 31, 2015
GenoLogics has announced the availability of Clarity LIMS X, an edition of its industry-leading laboratory informatics platform. Optimized for use with Illumina® SeqLab, the X Edition of Clarity LIMS provides positive sample tracking, maximizes quality and throughput, and improves turnaround time in population-scale genomics workflows.
The 2014 launch of the HiSeq X systems enabled labs to break the $1,000 barrier for human whole-genome sequencing. Labs are now addressing how to scale to throughput while maintaining a focus on quality and accuracy. The X Edition provides rapid scaling with automation and business logic built into preconfigured HiSeq X Series workflows.
Samples advance through the pipeline automatically, minimizing human interaction and the potential for error while enforcing quality standards. The X Edition of Clarity LIMS was designed based upon best practices from Genomics England Lab (GEL) and the Illumina FastTrack Services Lab, and is currently in use in both labs.
Clarity LIMS X Edition also provides e-signature, audit trails, and patient data security, making it suitable for regulated environments. According to Illumina Director of Scientific Research, Ryan Taft, Ph.D., “Clarity LIMS X closes the gap in providing a commercially available LIMS that includes out of the box instrument integration and positive sample tracking.”
“We are proud to partner with Illumina to provide the X Edition of Clarity LIMS for Illumina SeqLab,” says Michael Ball, CEO of GenoLogics. He adds, “This solution empowers scientists and clinicians to advance the understanding of disease and accelerate the integration of genomics into everyday healthcare.”
Changing Lanes: Algorithm Helps AI Drive More Like HumansNews
For self-driving cars, algorithms for changing lanes are beset by one of two problems. Either, they rely on detailed statistical models of the driving environment, which are too complex to analyze on the fly; or they’re so simple that they can lead to impractically conservative decisions, such as never changing lanes at all. Now a new algorithm hopes to split the difference, allowing aggressive lane changes than the simple models do but relies only on immediate information about other vehicles’ directions and velocities to make decisions.
Schizophrenics' Blood Contains RNA From More MicrobesNews
The blood of schizophrenia patients features genetic material from more types of microorganisms than that of people without the debilitating mental illness, research at Oregon State University has found. What’s not known is whether that’s a cause or effect of the severe, chronic condition that strikes about one person in 100.READ MORE
Faulty Gene Leads to Alcohol-Induced Heart FailureNews
A faulty gene interacts with alcohol to accelerate heart failure in susceptible patients, a study suggests. This dangerous interaction can occur even when only moderate amounts of alcohol have been consumed.READ MORE
