GeneRead Link Software
For automated data transfer between the GeneReader NGS System and LIMS
GeneRead Link is a middleware solution that provides a complete chain of custody for your samples in the GeneReader NGS System workflow, from sample preparation to data analysis. It provides a searchable archive of all relevant data from the GeneReader NGS System including FASTQ files, variant calling files (VCF), instrument reports, result files and user notes. GeneRead Link automates data transfer between the GeneReader NGS System including the GeneRead QIAcube, GeneReader, QIAGEN Clinical Insight (QCI) bioinformatics platform and LIMS improving the efficiency and productivity of your laboratory workflow.
GeneRead Link is for Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
Please note: The GeneReader NGS System is currently only available with proprietary new sequencing chemistry in the US. Legacy sequencing chemistry is only available ex-US.
Laboratory workflows may include many steps which are often performed on different instruments. If data flow between the instruments as well as to and from the LIMS is not fully integrated, data has to be manually transferred which is time-consuming, error-prone, and costly.
The powerful GeneRead Link Software, automates data transfer between the GeneReader NGS System and LIMS to enable an efficient automated workflow, from sample to result.
GeneRead Link enables:
Increased flexibility with connection to any LIMS
GeneRead Link Software facilitates a bi-directional connection between LIMS and the GeneReader NGS System. Automated result export reduces the time and effort required for checking results and helps to eliminate human error. This interface can be easily implemented by your LIMS provider using the specifications provided by QIAGEN.
GeneRead Link Middleware realizes the workflow management for both automated and manual workflow steps and facilitates the GeneReader NGS System workflow. It integrates with instrument or bioinformatics pipelines by connecting to the software, providing the information to start an instrument run or an analysis and by collecting and processing the results. GeneRead Link shows all sample information throughout the workflow in a single report.
