Continuing breakthroughs in genetics and molecular diagnostics are resulting in an increase of ordered tests and the amount of data being introduced into genetics laboratories. SCC’s comprehensive suite of genetics information management system solutions provides a full range of genetics tools designed to automate workflow in today’s genetics laboratories. This suite is Web-accessible, can be integrated with hospital information systems, and offers a selection of cytogenetics, molecular, flow cytometry, biochemistry, diagnostic pathology, and immunogenetics (HLA) solutions that are highly configurable and allow for predefined, user-defined protocols. The Genetics Information System Suite offers complete integration and a single shared database, instrument integration, reporting capabilities, rules-based system (RBS), reagent inventory functionality, and management reporting.
SoftGenomics is a computer software consisting of suite of applications which support ordering, testing, documentation, and reporting in laboratories that perform testing using cytogenetic and molecular technologies, including chromosome analysis and microarrays, with instrument and foreign system interfacing capabilities and Web-based online ordering, reporting, and collaboration functionality.
SCC’s genetics laboratory information management system, SoftCytogenetics, allows processing of cases using workflow scenarios as determined by the laboratory’s standard operating procedures (SOPs), including culture setup through harvesting, slide processing, analysis, and reporting. Culture tracking functionality supports culture processing for any testing in the cytogenetics laboratory as well as culture preparation for send out testing. Integration with cytogenetic imaging systems allows for easy countsheet data capture and image placement on reports. SoftCytogenetics also fully supports adjunct testing such as FISH (fluorescence in situ hybridization) and CGH (comparative genomic hybridization).
SCC’s SoftMolecular information management system enables pathologists, geneticists, and forensic scientists to manage data and analysis stemming from current molecular testing methods in order to generate accurate interpretations and meaningful reports. This robust, user-friendly, and intuitive workflow solution for the diagnostic genetics laboratory enables users to streamline workflows, interface with automated instrumentation, manage patient and family cases, track sample storage, and control inventory. SoftMolecular offers seamless integration and interfacing with sequencing and fragment analysis instruments. These interfaces replace manual data transfer reducing resource investment and the inherent error rate associated with manual processes. This results in not only in greater efficiency and accuracy but also provides efficient data management and minimal loss due to human error.
SoftHLA is SCC’s immunogenetics information management system for the diagnostic genetics laboratory and provides clinical and laboratory information management functionality related to transplantation workups for solid organ and stem cell/bone transplantation, along with transfusion support and other clinical purposes. The system provides a dynamic tool for immunogenetics laboratories by providing strong database support for information analysis and management. With its robust and flexible architecture, SoftHLA meets users’ needs in various endeavors, from PCR-based HLA typing methods to solid phase technologies. Furthermore, SoftHLA can be interfaced with virtually any other informatics application, as well as automated and non-automated equipment to support Luminex®, flow cytometry, sequencing, and other technologies from third-party vendors, including One Lambda, Abbott, Life Technologies, and others.
SoftFlowCytometry has flexible data management solution for the diagnostic genetics laboratory and it enables pathologists and medical technologists to effectively analyze multiple parameters from flow cytometric analysis software, including imported histograms and scatter plot images and data from custom panels derived from flow cytometry analysis techniques. SoftFlowCytometry can be readily interfaced with virtually any flow cytometry instrument or data analysis platform for capturing a large volume information analysis and management. Interfacing supports an efficient laboratory workflow avoiding manual entry which increases risk for data entry error.
SoftBiochemistry, SCC’s biochemistry information management system, is designed to organize and process many forms of data into clear, customized reports which are transmittable and interoperable with many enterprise-level information systems. The unique timesaving features directly address the need to reduce transcriptional and data entry errors, increase productivity and communication, and enhance the timeliness and quality of patient care. To improve efficiency, users can add additional rules to those already in the database – including rules on actions, ordering, billing, assigning orders, and signing out orders.
Flexibility is vital when it comes to providing physicians optimal service. SCC’s SoftGenePortal enables users’ clients to place orders directly into their Genetics Suite modules as well as view test results and reports. Online connectivity supports remote consultations and technical component/professional component (TC/PC) split test options. A new Patient Portal provides report accessibility and payment functionality. SCC’s SoftGenePortal also presents a unique marketing venue to advocate users’ organizations and update their customers on their current test menu or laboratory services.
