Managing lab data

St. George's, University of London (SGUL) Medical Biomics Centre has chosen a solution from GenoLogics  to help manage an abundance of laboratory and scientific data.

Gary Coulton, associate dean for enterprise and innovation at SGUL, explains, "We needed to address the data deluge coming from our diverse research activities and to provide a secure environment for data management. Our major need was a LIMS [laboratory information management system] and data management system capable of integrating multiple technologies and also handling data from many research teams, including our academic, clinical and commercial partners.

"It had to be flexible and user friendly but designed to be able to satisfy both academic and industrial users. We felt our ideal system had to provide data security but also have provision for Web access by external collaborators. It had to be scalable and have the potential for future development."

After looking at a number of potential solutions, the SGUL team chose ProteusLIMS from GenoLogics. Coulton says, "The system combines the proven capability of managing the complex data arising from conventional proteomic [protein] studies with the flexibility to accommodate new approaches developed within the Medical Biomics Centre."

GenoLogics provides an integrating platform and bioinformatics solutions to help life science and pharmaceutical laboratories manage, integrate and analyze enormous amounts of scientific and lab data.
