Melbourne, Australia, March 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GenoLogics Life Sciences Software, a leading provider of laboratory information management systems (LIMS) specifically designed for omics labs, announced today that the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre  in Melbourne Australia has selected Clarity LIMS to support their next-generation sequencing (NGS) workflows in cancer care.

When Peter Mac's Molecular Pathology Laboratory began processing translational clinical diagnostics with NGS, they knew that maintaining data integrity, meeting strict regulatory requirements, and supporting dynamic NGS workflows were pivotal to the success of their programs and treatment of their patients. "We reviewed several systems and we determined Clarity LIMS as the best solution to support our clinical NGS and sanger sequencing work based on its end-to-end tracking of patient sample data and ability to lock down and enforce clinical workflows," said Dr Andrew Fellowes, Scientist in Charge of Molecular Diagnostic Development at Peter Mac. "We are moving to a paperless lab which the Clarity LIMS will support by providing flexible APIs that will enable us to connect seamlessly to our existing LIS system and our downstream analysis algorithms."

Clarity LIMS provides APIs that give organizations an additional tool in their arsenal to improve operations and receive even more return on their investment. Customers have used the APIs to extend system capability by integrating automated robotics workflows and to remove the burden on bioinformaticians by creating automatic data analysis pipelines with analysis algorithms--all without incurring additional professional services fees.

We're proud to be helping equip the only public hospital and research institute dedicated to cancer in the Southern Hemisphere" said Michael Ball, CEO of GenoLogics. "An organization such as the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre selecting our system supports our mission to build the best solutions to support worldwide clinical and research NGS laboratories."
