iGene – Laboratory

iGene’s laboratory functionality has been developed from the ground up to facilitate the bespoke customisation for individual labs. Our test based custom workflows allow the greatest flexibility whilst maintaining consistency for all users of the system. Coupled with the mWare interface engine, iGene provides a modern interoperable solution for genetic laboratories.

Features Include

  • Connectivity to laboratory instrumentation, imaging equipment and custom workflow management
  • Test Based workflows allow creation of interfaces (using our mWare integration plug ins) to laboratory equipment
  • Custom work flows per site allow set up of a flexible and best fit system for processing all types of samples including reflex testing, failures, clotted samples and family testing
  • Complete barcoding and automated work list creation
  • DNA storage module and consent logging allowing you to search for banked samples, search and automatically assign available positions and more…
  • Management reports allow lab managers and directors to see turn around time in real time; technicians can see real time work lists for extraction, culturing, harvesting, storage, processing worksheets, results entry and more…
  • Real time reporting for daily work lists, up to date reporting times, outstanding case numbers, compliance to guideline times
  • Enhanced Quality Management tools to linking of protocols and policies to each test workflow
  • Test plug-in technology ensures future test requirements can easily be added to the iGene engine
  • Seamless integration with Clinical Module

What about data transfer?

Genial Genetics has had extensive experience with implementations with complex data transfer requirements. iGene has been designed to minimise the data transfer effort by including a data import module. This module allows users to import their own source data as CSV files and provide detailed feedback on orphaned records or data anomalies that can be rectified by editing CSV files directly in a spreadsheet application.

For users upgrading from the Genial Shire system, we have developed a Shire export application that outputs iGene ‘friendly’ CSV files ready for import. This facilitates the ability to do a large element of the data transfer easily on site with local testing at a much reduced cost. The exporter also supports custom record mapping to be configured to help re-map data into the iGene application.
