M2 PHARMA-September 5, 2014-GenoLogics becomes Illumina's preferred LIMS provider for HiSeq X Ten sequencing system


5 September 2014 - Canada-based GenoLogics Life Sciences Software, active in developing laboratory information management systems (LIMS), said yesterday it had been picked by US genetic variation and function analysis specialist Illumina Inc (NASDAQ:ILMN) as the preferred LIMS provider to support customers of the HiSeq X Ten sequencing system.

As part of the deal, the parties are collaborating to provide support for HiSeq X Ten whole-genome workflows and analysis pipelines, including those that Illumina will utilise internally. Furthermore, the US firm will use GenoLogics' LIMS to support its partnership with Genomics England to sequence 100,000 genomes.

The accord pairs the USD-1,000 (EUR 772) genome with the LIMS, which will additionally help the sequencing community sequence human whole genomes.
