See What Your LIMS Could Look Like at PITTCON 2016!
News Jan 21, 2016
Visitors to Booth #4063 can see a sample registration/submission screen tailored to their exact requirements. Visitors simply need to stop by Booth #4063 with a sketch of how they would like the screen to look and let Autoscribe Informatics staff configure it before their very eyes!
This real-life demonstration highlights how easy it is to modify any workflow, screen or report to the exact needs of any laboratory and see the results instantly. Such flexibility is made possible by Autoscribe Informatics’ Matrix Gemini configuration tools, which use visual drag and drop, point and click methods to add fields, list boxes etc. to screens. Each system can look and behave differently in order to meet end-user requirements. Crucially, these changes do not involve writing custom code and the core code of the LIMS remains unchanged.
Autoscribe’s Managing Director, John Boother, commented: “This is a great illustration of Matrix Gemini’s configuration abilities which can be demonstrated in more depth further into the buying cycle of a LIMS. Then we have the opportunity to show part of an actual system with screens that replicate the requirements of the particular laboratory during a product demonstration. This produces a very positive result – many, many of our customers tell us that the prime reason they chose Matrix Gemini was because they could see exactly how Matrix could meet their specific requirements and be used long term.”
Algorithm Speeds Up Medical Image Analysis 1000 TimesNews
Medical image registration is a common technique that involves overlaying two images, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, to compare and analyze anatomical differences in great detail. Researchers have described a machine-learning algorithm that can register brain scans and other 3-D images more than 1,000 times more quickly using novel learning techniques.
Antarctic Worm and Machine Learning Help Identify Cerebral Palsy EarlierNews
A research team has released a study in the peer-reviewed journal BMC Bioinformatics showing that DNA methylation patterns in circulating blood cells can be used to help identify spastic cerebral palsy (CP) patients. The technique which makes use of machine learning, data science and even analysis of Antarctic worms, raises hopes for earlier targeted CP therapies.
Towards Personalized Medicine: One Type of Data is Not EnoughNews
To understand the biology of diseased organs researchers use different types of molecular data. One of the biggest computational challenges at the moment is integrating these multiple data types. A new computational method jointly analyses different types of molecular data and disentangles the sources of disease variability to guide personalized treatment.READ MORE
