GenoLogics, a leading provider of laboratory information management system (LIMS) software specifically designed for next-generation omics labs, announced today that the Australian Genome Research Facility (AGRF) has implemented the GenoLogics Preconfigured Package for Illumina NGS and is now in full production using the system. The LIMS will help the lab manage the increased throughput and data generated by AGRF’s sequencing systems.

AGRF, Australia’s largest provider of genomics services and solutions, was one of the first genome research facilities to purchase the Preconfigured Package, which significantly speeds implementation times for labs with Illumina NGS systems, while providing maximum flexibility to interface with other instruments.

“AGRF is experiencing a period of rapid growth as we deploy new NGS systems and expand our array of sequencing services in the region,” said Dr. Stephen Wilcox, National Operations Manager at AGRF. “We needed a system that would allow us to manage the increased data and one that could be implemented relatively quickly. The GenoLogics Preconfigured Package for Illumina NGS was a clear choice, as the preconfigured workflows suited our needs.”

AGRF has expanded its next-generation sequencing services and currently has five Illumina HiSeq 2000 instruments that form part of a suite of NGS instruments at the facility. To manage the resulting data deluge and seamlessly integrate with other relevant instrumentation, AGRF decided to deploy a new LIMS. The GenoLogics Preconfigured Package for Illumina NGS was selected because of its sample tracking capabilities, automated QC, preconfigured workflows that incorporate best practices, improved reporting, and fast implementation time.

“AGRF is a recognized leader in genomics service provision, and we look forward to working with the company as it continues to expand its NGS and desktop sequencing,” stated Michael Ball, CEO at GenoLogics. “By providing a preconfigured LIMS that offers customization capabilities, GenoLogics is well-positioned to meet the increasing demands of sequencing centers.”
