Using Core LIMS to Support Clinical & Research Genomics Workflows

Research Genomics Workflows

Core Informatics and Mount Sinai Webinar

We hope you were able to join us on April 21st for our webinar on How Mount Sinai Uses LIMS to Support Clinical & Research Genomics Workflows delivered by Todd E. Arnold, PhD., Managing Director, Mount Sinai Genetic Testing Laboratory and joined by Dan Huston, Applications Manager, Genomics, Core Informatics.

Starting a Lab with Clinical & Research Sequencing Workflows

Dr. Arnold shared an in-depth look at Mount Sinai’s experience with selecting and deploying a laboratory information management system (LIMS). Dr. Arnold highlighted the need to understand the elements and the key stages of your workflows. He also advocated for establishing subject matter experts for every step of your workflow. The implementation of Mount Sinai’s LIMS was unique, because the lab handles both clinical and research samples.

The Core LIMS in Dr. Arnold’s facility integrates all aspects of the laboratory workflow from accessioning all the way through data generation. The Mount Sinai Genetic Testing Laboratory in Connecticut handles 50K-80K samples per year and every part of its system is touched by the Core LIMS.

Platform for Science Marketplace for Research & Clinical NGS Labs

The webinar also included a brief introduction to Core’s Platform for Science Marketplace. The Platform for Science Marketplace showcases apps built on Core’s Platform for Science. The apps support a variety of laboratory data management workflows, including Genomics/NGS.

The apps support data management and workflow needs of any laboratory type, from clinical to research, small to large, new startup or labs that are already established.

Thanks to the modularity of the apps, as the goals and needs of your organization change, your system can evolve with you. Apps offer unlimited configurability. No programing/scripting skill is necessary to make changes yourself. The apps allow you to stay in sync with the science and technology. The apps give you the ability to choose the functionality you need. The apps enable your organization to continuously adapt IT data management architectures to support the integration of new technologies.
