Top Five Features Our Clients Love About STACS-CW

Wednesday, March 7, 9 PT/10 MT/11 CT/12 ET/6 CET/9 GST

Target audience: DNA Analysts, Lab Managers, Quality Assurance Managers

Our casework DNA lab customers can’t imagine doing their jobs without STACS-CW. The ability to digitally track and document all DNA laboratory activities is what separates STACS-CW clients from those who are using just their LIMS to track DNA samples. STACS has become vital to their day-to-day processing of DNA cases.

We asked our clients what they like most about STACS-CW. We asked large DNA labs with multiple sites as well as small local DNA labs with just a few analysts.

We learned the top five STACS-CW functions our clients said they can’t live without. Join us for this webinar to hear what they had to say.
