Since the completion of the Human Genome Project, genetic technology has advanced by leaps and bounds, and the genetic testing market has rapidly emerged globally. Gene testing technology is widely used in clinical medical testing, scientific and technological services, agricultural breeding, translational medicine (R&D of new drugs), crime identification and others. In particular, the impact on the clinical medical testing is the most profound. Nowadays, genetic testing technology is widely used in clinical medicine, including prenatal testing, tumor susceptibility gene testing, genetic disease testing and diagnosis. Since 2016, the state has repeatedly emphasized the development of emerging technologies such as genetic diagnosis and industry specifications for gene sequencing. Additionally, in August 2016 and January 2017, respectively, the state issued the “13th Five-Year" Plan for National Science and Technology Innovation and the “13th Five-Year Plan for National Strategic Emerging Industries, indicating that the state has attached importance to the development of the gene sequencing industry and advancement of related industries in a planned way.
With the application of genetic testing technology, reducing the labor cost in the genetic testing laboratories, improving testing quality and efficiency, and enhancing laboratory management practices have become urgent needs for genetic testing enterprises. The introduction of mature information technology and products, the implementation of laboratory information management can undoubtedly greatly eliminate the various unfavorable factors of "management by person", making the laboratory's total quality management more effective and standardized with lower cost, and also making the laboratory data more accurate, stable and handy.
The system can realize online management of all the processes, provide labs with timely, accurate, reliable and traceable lab data, enhance sample monitoring in each quality control link, improve the capacity of lab management, lab quality supervision and resource allocation and integrate with the customer service system, ERP system, sequencing analysis system and the reporting system to realize integrated management of the overall business procedure and management of the whole closed loop process from contract, production test, to financial settlement.
Improvement of production test efficiency
By introducing the template concept, the system can realize automatic calculation, automatic flow of test tasks, automatic data collection with instruments, and automatic generation of inspection reports, comprehensive reminding and barcode scanning, significantly reducing the workload of analysts. Meanwhile, wrong test results caused by manual mistake can be avoided, improving the quality and ensuring the correctness of inspection reports.
