What STACS can do for your DNA lab

Increase Productivity

  • STACS automated data capture reduces or eliminates data entry for every task in the lab, allowing staff to focus on lab work.
  • Processing configuration tools support custom workflows and plate/instrument templates, accelerating preparation and processing.
  • Lab processing modules generate transaction files for instruments (per client settings), saving preparation time in the lab.
  • Processing tools validate pre-defined control profiles during analysis and QA/QC runs.

Reduce Errors

  • STACS tracks consumable status, preventing the use of expired consumables and consumables that have failed QA/QC testing.
  • Reduces waste due to storage log issues.
  • Inventory Management modules guide users and capture preparation data during QA/QC, preparation or release.
  • STACS tracks instrument status and maintenance lead times, preventing the use of instruments that are out of service or due for maintenance.
  • Configurable workflows guide users through lab processes and prevent undocumented work.
  • Automated data capture records every lab activity, preventing data entry errors and missing data.

Improve Data Quality

  • STACS’ paper-free database eliminates redundant data entry and provides a central repository for all processing and operations data in the lab.
  • Supports two-way data transfer from a remote agency or external LIMS.
  • Bridges with CODIS and other law enforcement databases for enhanced upload, confirmation and match tracking activities.
  • STACS performs processing calculations automatically based on client settings.

Improve Compliance

  • STACS tracking creates a robust audit trail for every sample, consumable, instrument and storage location in the lab.
  • STACS paper-free database expedites audits and discovery requests.
  • Report module provides comprehensive reporting on a wide range of operational and management metrics.
  • SOP management module tracks SOP versions and allows SOPs to be associated with specific tasks or workflows.
