Biotracker™ One LIMS for all Genomic Processes

A Genomic lab processes multiple samples or projects based on contracts and requests, these experiments further are run on various Genotyping, Expression and Sequencing technologies. The resultant data is large, complex, and has various data standards and formats making the data and process management challenging. The data must be captured, securely stored, analyzed, retrieved and shared efficiently across all stake holders within and outside the Facility.

Whether it is an Academic core facility, Big Pharma R&D, Hospital, CRO or Government R&D facility, the Genomics data and process management have raised the potential opportunities to automate several steps of the Genomic process leading to increased throughput.

Ocimum’s Biotracker Genomic LIMS is one such early adopted off the shelf LIMS, that efficiently handles the large amounts of Genomic data generated and helps with quality control, tracking of samples, capture and management of data at different steps of the processes, while serving to manage the workflows precisely. Biotracker also supports good laboratory practices by standardizing protocols, recording and annotating data from every step of the workflow.
