Clarity LIMS Testimonials

Domain Expertise and Support

“When you’re buying a system like a LIMS, you aren’t just buying software, you’re buying extensibility and the support of a technology partner. We definitely traded a product for a company.”

Justin Johnson
Former Director of Bioinformatics, EdgeBio

“We have worked with many vendors and this is by far the smoothest project we have ever worked on.”

Warren Kaplan (PhD)
Bioinformatics Specialist, Centre for Clinical Genomics, Garvan Institute of Medical Research

“We learned very quickly how great GenoLogics’ support is shortly after system install. On Friday afternoon, we experienced a problem and by 9:00 AM the next day, which was a Saturday, technical support had sent us a solution.”

Jaime Wendt Andre
Molecular Genetics Technical Specialist/Sequencing Core Diagnostic Manager, Medical College of Wisconsin

“GenoLogics provided professional project managers who came on site so that the implementation went smoothly.”

Justin Johnson
Former Director of Bioinformatics, EdgeBio

“Customer service and support — these guys have been fabulous.”

Dr. Megan Landsverk
Director, Medical Genetics Sanford Health

“If there’s a problem that you truly can’t solve, you are one phone call away from help.”

Jenni Taller
Lab Manager, Beck’s Superior Hybrids

Real-time Status and Reporting

“Now instead of staying up all night worrying about critical samples, we can log in from anywhere in the world to see what is going on with the sequencers. This is because our sequencers can be connected to the LIMS through APIs and instrument status viewed through dashboards.” (paraphrased to clarify how to see instrument status).”

Lab Management

“Having worked in centers previously that lacked a true LIMS for next-gen sequencing I can safely say that the benefits of this cannot be underestimated.”

“Additionally, running everything off of a single, concise, contiguous database has minimized data entry and processing errors to nearly zero.”

David Miller
Sequencing Manager, Queensland Centre for Medical Genomics

“Overall we estimate this pipelining cuts down on the time required for data analysis by at least 60%, freeing several person years of time for other tasks in a laboratory group of ten people. This resulted in a cumulative time savings of approximately 240 [person] days over the previous manual process.”

Dr. Leonard Foster
Centre for High-throughput Biology, UBC Proteomics Lab

“The lab staff at Helmholtz have saved 10 hours/week “…because we don’t have to spend time on manually copying, renaming, and pasting of files and finally waiting for the transfer of files in order to proceed with the next step anymore.”

“Our decision to implement the GenoLogics LIMS was validated when we became one of the first companies to provide sequencing services on the Ion Torrent PGM. With the GenoLogics LIMS in place, our lab proved nimble enough to quickly integrate with this desktop personal sequencing platform, which is one of many new technologies we will deploy to meet our customers’ demands.”

Justin Johnson
Former Director of Bioinformatics, EdgeBio

“Clarity LIMS is a time-saver. We probably save 30-60 minutes per sample on not filling out various spreadsheets and writing so many different lot numbers. This adds up quickly when you are doing 1000s of samples.”

Jaime Wendt Andre
Molecular Genetics Technical Specialist/ Sequencing Core Diagnostic Manager at Medical College of Wisconsin

“Running samples on Beckman Coulter robots using the Illumina HiSeq instrument with Clarity system information management enables us to provide scientists with timely and reliable analysis of their NGS samples.”

Tim Anderson
Vice President and General Manager of Genomic Services at Beckman Coulter Genomics

"I needed a LIMS now, and within two weeks, I was rolling.”

Jenni Taller
Lab Manager, Beck’s Superior Hybrids

“Clarity LIMS was one of the few options that we looked into that was affordable for us as a startup lab, something that we could grow into.”

Meghan Hudziec
Lab Manager, Baby Genes

Usability

“The Clarity LIMS interface is highly intuitive, largely because it is set up to follow the logical flow of a sample moving through the wet lab. This aspect, coupled with the fact that it can be used for planning lab work will significantly increase user adoption. We have looked at many LIMS over the past few years, and the Clarity LIMS user experience surpasses all others.”

Marc Laurent
Director of Genomic Services, Illumina Inc

“Clearly a lot of thought was put into the design of the user interface. It uses a lot of the semantics present in modern desktop applications, like drag and drop and the shift and control keys. That it is a web interface also makes a big difference, because going into the future, we might have tablets in the lab, and a lightweight system like this will be easier to deploy than a Java client.”

Conrad Leonard
Bioinformatics Engineer, Queensland Centre for Medical Genomics

“Clarity LIMS is intuitive system and it makes sense to someone like me that did not have experience with LIMS systems at all, so that was really nice.”

Meghan Hudziec
Lab Manager, Baby Genes

Configurability

“I am a molecular geneticist. I am not a computer programmer. Yet Clarity LIMS was able to be configured by me and the rest of the technical team.”

Jaime Wendt Andre
Molecular Genetics Technical Specialist/ Sequencing Core Diagnostic Manager at Medical College of Wisconsin

Sample Traceability and Support for Compliance

The preconfigured steps for sample prep were invaluable.” “We work with different products and methods, and we also need to track samples and keep the lab running. It’s a challenging environment, but from what I’ve seen so far, the GenoLogics LIMS should be able to handle it”

Larry DeDionisio
Scientist, Illumina Fast Track Sequencing Services Lab

“We need to know where our samples are at every step of the workflow and our team needs to be able to access the history of the sample at any stage; the GenoLogics LIMS provides these capabilities.”

Dr. Peter Wilson
Executive Officer, Queensland Centre for Medical Genomics
