  • Looking for LIMS

    Rather than putting the resources into building one, we are seeking to buy or borrow a LIMS. Our facility will be NextGen (2 HiSeqs, 2-3 GAIIx) and currently has a complete (Affy, Agilent, illumina, Nimblegen) microarray core.

    We'd like a Web-based system that:
    > tracks projects
    > tracks samples and sample "offspring" (e.g. cDNA derived from an RNA sample would become a new sample which needs to be tied to the source sample)
    > tracks collaborators creates bills
    > allows collaborators to log in and submit samples and follow their projects
    > tracks reagents, tying them to projects
    > tracks technicians, tying them to projects

    Any recommendations would be very appreciated!!

    Honestly, all the products I've seen out there are quite expensive, and not enough customization is allowed for our needs (UM Core Facility).

    Our core has 3 GAIIx, 1 454, 1 Beadstation, 1 ABI7900HT, 1 Sequenom 3 ABI 3730XL, and a bunch of other small equipment -- I've developed our own home-grown LIMs that has online sample submission & project quote generation, tracks samples & projects across all our platforms, allows clients to monitor the status of their samples online, tracks reagents, automates billing, and has a 'tech tools' area so they can plan & organize their work better.

    It's been our best option; every time we get a new instrument or unconventional project I can modify the design to accommodate it. The techs love that they can request a button to do this or a new sorting feature and boom it's there in a day.

    The whole thing runs on Sybase & has a perl CGI web front-end, so development tools are free, you just need a server and someone to set it up.

      Looking for LIMS

      I think you should inquire about Biotracker LIMS

      Recently their LIMS has been selected by The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center of their Research Core Facilities.

          Advanced Tools Transforming the Field of Cytogenomics
          by seqadmin


          At the intersection of cytogenetics and genomics lies the exciting field of cytogenomics. It focuses on studying chromosomes at a molecular scale, involving techniques that analyze either the whole genome or particular DNA sequences to examine variations in structure and behavior at the chromosomal or subchromosomal level. By integrating cytogenetic techniques with genomic analysis, researchers can effectively investigate chromosomal abnormalities related to diseases, particularly...

          How RNA-Seq is Transforming Cancer Studies
          by seqadmin



          Cancer research has been transformed through numerous molecular techniques, with RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) playing a crucial role in understanding the complexity of the disease. Maša Ivin, Ph.D., Scientific Writer at Lexogen, and Yvonne Goepel Ph.D., Product Manager at Lexogen, remarked that “The high-throughput nature of RNA-seq allows for rapid profiling and deep exploration of the transcriptome.” They emphasized its indispensable role in cancer research, aiding in biomarker...

          Methods for Investigating the Transcriptome
          by seqadmin




          Ribonucleic acid (RNA) represents a range of diverse molecules that play a crucial role in many cellular processes. From serving as a protein template to regulating genes, the complex processes involving RNA make it a focal point of study for many scientists. This article will spotlight various methods scientists have developed to investigate different RNA subtypes and the broader transcriptome.
