Frederick, MD – July 31, 2013 – RURO and Appistry are please to announce partnership to deliver integrated solutions for Big-Data Lab Management for Production-Scale NGS.

Automation is a fact of life for modern labs. But effectively managing the increasingly ubiquitous handoffs between humans, instruments, and computers requires ways to expedite and support both the physical work performed in the lab and the associated digital tasks performed by a lab’s computational workers. This is particularly important for labs seeking to provide results and diagnostic insights from data-intensive techniques such as NGS.

The winning combination of RURO’s software used in a variety of laboratory settings and Appistry’s Ayrris big-data computing pipeline creates the data-aware, computationally conscious lab environments.

Smart integration of the Ayrris with LIMS 24/7 sets new standards for translational medicine. Customers using the join solution will gain a seamless transition from NGS laboratory workflows into a computational pipeline and back.

It’s a logical integration given the influx of data from NGS. RURO’s LIMS 24/7 is a comprehensive, easy-to-implement laboratory information management system that tracks data associated with all administrative and wet lab processes, from receipt and preparation of samples through running libraries on sequencers. But a LIMS can’t track and expedite data processing and analysis steps, and that’s where Ayrris comes in. Sitting between sequencers and the applications that interpret and store data, Ayrris provides the key big data capabilities labs need to run customer’s pipelines at scale.

Laboratories seeking to implement clinical NGS will gain a continuous pipeline that makes collecting, storing, managing, and routing data simple, reliable, and efficient.

Integrating a LIMS with a robust big-data environment enables laboratories to:

  • Establish and maintain a full chain of custody for samples and associated data across the experimental life cycle
  • Standardize physical and digital processes to achieve compliance with regulations such as CLIA, HIPAA or Safe Harbor
  • Create production-grade workflows necessary for running defined lab workflows at scale

About RURO
Founded in 2006, RURO specializes in modular information management systems for laboratories worldwide. FreezerPro, RURO’s solution designed purely for Sample Management, can be complimented by Sciency ELN and the full-scale LIMS 24/7. Many lab businesses begin with the RURO system that suits current requirements for compliance and automation and then grow within the same software methodology as needed.

For lab businesses around the world, RURO is Laboratory Information Bliss™.
