Personalized Medicine

Is your lab challenged by expanding molecular genetic testing? Or an outdated LIMS?

Your DNA lab can gain control, save time and money

DNA processing is a sophisticated, evolving science. So why are you tracking state-of-the-art science using outdated tools?

Is your current sample tracking system not keeping up?

  • Are you concerned about meeting turnaround time targets?
  • Does it take you more than a few seconds to retrieve information about any sample?
  • Do you ever worry about contamination or transposition errors?
  • Do peer reviews and audits take up too much time and effort?
  • Do you doubt your current system’s ability to meet the demands of the next five years?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you’ve come to the right place. We understand that DNA labs have unique requirements not met by generic systems. We help labs implement DNA processing best practices. We help to transform labs to meet their project and business goals.

For each and every sample in your lab, you need to know:

Who: Which pathologist or technician processed that sample? Who was responsible for quality control? Who performed the review?

What: What is the sample’s status right now? What reagents were used (and did they pass QA/QC)? What instruments were used (and is their maintenance up-to-date)? What other samples was it processed with?

When: How long ago was it processed? How long did each processing step take?

Where: Where is the sample right now – which plate and position? Or where is it in storage?

How: What workflow was used? What was the Standard Operating Procedure and was it followed?

Only STACS DNA software keeps an automatic and detailed audit trail that tells you the who, what, when, where and how of every sample. It’s the only software specifically designed to meet the daily demands of DNA labs.
