is an advanced process optimization software product
from BergenShaw International. Focus
laboratories to optimize their research processes, thus increasing their
yield, improving their throughput, and
lowering their overall operating cost.
Gene sequencing, gene expression, genotyping, proteomics, biomolecular
screening, and other high throughput life science research processes are very
complex, with many
process steps, each of which has many potentially yield-affecting factors
associated with it. In addition,
these processes are often changed to reflect the changing needs of the research
they support. When a process yield
changes, it impacts both the speed and the cost of that research making it
essential to quickly identify when a change has occurred and to pinpoint the
cause and quantify the impact of all yield changes.
automatically analyzes the performance of all
individual factor sets (individual factors such as libraries, machines,
personnel, reagents, etc. and combinations of factors such as Library=Human7 and
Machine=Thermocycler41 and Operator=JTS) associated with the research process,
identifies when a yield change has occurred, identifies all yield effecting
factor sets, quantifies the impact of each, and notifies the appropriate
personnel when performance anomalies exceed user specified criteria.
identifies the factor sets associated with all yield losses and with all yield gains, it is
an ideal tool for optimizing new research processes coming on-line and for
maintaining optimal performance from existing ones.
