Case Study: Genetic Testing Lab Sees 25-Fold Scaleup with New Informatics System

August 27 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

This webinar offers a look at how an advanced genetics laboratory implemented and validated a commercial bioinformatics system to help scale its operations.

William Kearns, founder of genetics testing lab AdvaGenix, will share his team’s experience as it sought to increase its testing throughput while maintaining high quality standards. After studying the time and cost associated with building and validating a bioinformatics platform from scratch, as well as the cost of maintaining such a system, the AdvaGenix team decided to look for commercial solutions.

AdvaGenix needed a solution that adhered to society guidelines and also included domain expertise in genetic testing. The team ultimately opted for a system from Qiagen and has since been able to scale up its operations by at least 25-fold. Dr. Kearns will discuss his team’s experience and learnings from this implementation and the results they have seen so far.
