Laboratory Management for Clinical and Research NGS Labs
Few can argue that Next Generation Sequencing is having a major impact on genomics research. The progress in this field exceeds even that of computational growth according to Moore’s Law, and this rapid progression will be continuing for years to come. The net result is that more labs are able to afford NGS instruments and to perform high volume sequencing. The adoption of NGS sequencers has presented new challenges in handling requests for services, preparing samples and tracking results, especially given the fluid nature of both the NGS market and the protocols for each instrument.
