BaseSpace Clarity LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System)

BaseSpace Clarity LIMS is a laboratory information management system designed for genomics labs to track samples and manage workflows for an optimized and efficient lab.

BaseSpace Clarity LIMS does much more than track samples. As the digital backbone of the lab, it actively manages your entire laboratory operations, from sample and data management to people, instruments, and consumables. BaseSpace Clarity LIMS standardizes and automates workflows, saving time and reducing the chance of human errors. It scales with your laboratory ecosystem to accommodate new technologies and workflows. BaseSpace Clarity LIMS:

  • Helps your laboratory reduce time with straightforward implementation, preset protocols for Illumina sample/library prep kits and instruments, and quality control features that flag poor-quality samples
  • Helps support compliance with eSignature, audit trails, reagent and lot tracking, and privacy and security controls
  • Promotes accuracy with automation and built-in business logic and error checking
  • Manages complexity and change with the ability to easily create new fields, protocols, and workflows in the user interface without the need for software coding
  • Enables thorough extension and customization of your laboratory environment through use of the application programming interface (API) to integrate in-house and third-party tools, as well as automate processes and integrate robotics
  • Eases IT burden with quick implementation and rigorous security practices
Sample tracking and audit readiness

BaseSpace Clarity LIMS provides receipt-to-result sample tracking, comprehensive lab operation reporting, and human-readable audit trails.

Flexibility and scalability

BaseSpace Clarity LIMS enables you to easily build new workflows that reflect laboratory protocols. Additionally, a comprehensive application programming interface (API) enables the LIMS to scale to increased sample volumes or new instruments.

Illumina preset protocols and out-of-the-box instrument integrations

BaseSpace Clarity LIMS helps you to get quickly into production with preset protocols and out-of-the-box instrument integrations. All preset protocols include sample and reagent calculations, auto transitions and sample placement to support many common genomics applications including Whole-Genome Sequencing (WGS).
