Background

MOgene has been an industry leader in offering high-quality diagnostic testing and genomic services since 2004. MOgene provides integrated, sample-to-insight solutions to pharmaceutical, biotech, clinical, and industrial markets. Their purpose-built CLIA certified laboratory in St. Louis, MO, USA, offers advanced wet laboratory and bioinformatics capabilities to deliver highly customized, data-driven genomic services with fast turnaround times and quality results.

MOgene provides a complete range of genomics and molecular services for academic and commercial institutions, including support for discovery under research or regulated environments. The company offers diverse array of genomics services including sample preparation (DNA and RNA extraction), ddPCR, qPCR, SNP genotyping assays, and a wide range of short and long read next-generation sequencing (NGS) for amplicon, WGS, RNAseq and smRNAseq.

Data Management & Operational Challenges of MOgene

MOgene, working with the clients, provides CLIA-based diagnostic tests and supports clinical trials. The primary goal of MOgene is to provide the best diagnostic services to their clients. MOgene recognized a lack of workflow automation as a major bottleneck in the overall operational efficiency. Some of the common challenges faced by the company are as follows:

  • Managing huge volumes of samples such as saliva, nasopharyngeal swabs, buccal swabs, and associated data.
  • Managing their storage inventory and tracking stored samples before and after testing.
  • Securely storing and accessing the PHI of patients and maintaining their clinical and demographic data.
  • Ensuring complete traceability through the sample life cycle.
  • Managing kits, laboratory inventory, and automatically updating their current quantity.
  • Following regulatory guidelines such as CLIA, HIPAA, GCP, and 21 CFR Part 11.

To overcome the aforementioned challenges and to streamline and automate their diagnostic operations, MOgene decided to deploy a cloud-based diagnostic lab management software.

Why MOgene Decided to Choose CloudLIMS - All-in-One Diagnostic Lab Management Software

MOgene contacted the CloudLIMS team and specified their requirements. The CloudLIMS team pre-configured the product in line with their workflows and demonstrated how CloudLIMS can help overcome their operational challenges and offer exceptional services to their clients.

Soon after the product demonstration, MOgene decided to evaluate the product. After extensive evaluation by their team, MOgene decided to deploy CloudLIMS. MOgene was impressed by the technical support and training during the evaluation phase and after purchasing the product. CloudLIMS has now become an integral part of MOgene diagnostic services.

Benefits Gained by MOgene

After deploying CloudLIMS, MOgene experienced the following benefits:

  • They are now able to securely manage and store samples and associated metadata along with their clients’ information.
  • They can now easily manage the PHI of patients as CloudLIMS helps them provide role-based PHI access to authorized personnel only, safeguarding the personally identifiable information of patients.
  • MOgene is now able to access samples in a batch by simply scanning sample labels, saving time, and preventing chances of manual errors.
  • The team then requested to integrate their patient platform with CloudLIMS to streamline their test management and reporting process. The CloudLIMS team went on to integrate the platform to offer a seamless experience from their website to the product and back at no additional costs to MOgene.
  • They are now able to comply with regulatory requirements with ease.
  • With CloudLIMS’ flexibility, they can now easily configure new samples and support sample processing workflows.

CloudLIMS’ implementation helped MOgene achieve improvements in the company’s operations, ranging from sample and data management, shorter turnaround times, automated workflow management, and fast delivery of test results. MOgene has now joined the league of hundreds of clinical diagnostic laboratories worldwide that have realized the benefits of CloudLIMS.

Testimonial

mogene

MOgene LC, a high complexity CLIA-certified lab, was looking for a secure system to automate and streamline the diagnostic operations, especially after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. As there was high demand of COVID-19 test requests and an urgent need for automation, we quickly zeroed in on CloudLIMS to meet our data management, automation, and compliance requirements. The CloudLIMS team not only mirrored our workflows, but also integrated with our clients as well as other vendors’ patient portal systems, right from patient registration to test report delivery. This definitely is a remarkable addition to our quality systems. I am happy with CloudLIMS’s flexibility and exceptional support during the whole process!.
