New version release – improved user-friendliness and additional features
QIAlink Software automates data transfer between QIAsymphony SP/AS instruments, Rotor-Gene Q instruments, with Rotor-Gene Q software or Rotor-Gene AssayManager, and LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System), improving the efficiency and productivity of your laboratory workflow.
QIAlink is middleware software that is intended to provide bidirectional connectivity between a LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) and QIAsymphony RGQ, which consists of QIAsymphony SP/AS with QIAsymphony Management Console (QMC) and Rotor-Gene Q, or Rotor-Gene Q MDx, with Rotor-Gene AssayManager or Rotor-Gene Q software.
Improvements with QIAlink Software version 2.0 include:
Laboratory workflows may include many steps, which are often performed on different instruments. If data flow between the instruments and LIMS is not fully integrated, the data has to be manually transferred, which is time-consuming, error-prone and costly.
QIAlink Software, which runs in the background, automates data transfer between QIAsymphony RGQ and LIMS, enabling an efficient automated workflow from sample to result.
QIAlink Software enables:
Increased flexibility with connection to any LIMS
QIAlink Software facilitates a connection between LIMS and QIAsymphony SP/AS instruments, and between LIMS and Rotor-Gene Q (MDx) with Rotor-Gene AssayManager or Rotor-Gene Q software. The standardized HL7 interface makes QIAlink Software compatible with any LIMS, providing increased flexibility. This interface can be easily implemented by your LIMS provider using the specifications provided by QIAGEN.
Efficient data transfer streamlines your workflow
After receiving a test order from LIMS, QIAlink Software generates work lists for the QIAsymphony SP. QIAsymphony parameters are automatically assigned to the samples and manual parameter assignment is no longer required, enabling a streamlined workflow. To further improve workflow efficiency, rack files are automatically transferred from QIAsymphony SP to QIAsymphony AS instruments, facilitating transfer of the eluate plate from the QIAsymphony SP to QIAsymphony AS.
Simple export of results to LIMS
Results can be exported from Rotor-Gene Q software to LIMS via a simple one-click procedure. After release of results in Rotor-Gene AssayManager, a LIMS output file is exported to QIAlink Software. QIAlink Software then automatically transfers the results from the LIMS output file to LIMS. Automated result export reduces the time and effort required for checking results and helps to eliminate human error.
Easy configuration of new user-defined tests
The easy-to-use Interface Setup environment allows configuration of new user-defined tests, delivering the flexibility to meet your future needs. Users with an “Administrator” role can create, modify, activate, and deactivate assay profiles, and all changes are tracked in a full audit trail.
Traceability of process data
Sample-related process data are securely archived within an SQL Server Express database. Extensive search functions enable fast and easy retrieval of archived result files and support your quality control procedures.
Tracking of pending assay orders
QIAlink displays and prints an overview of pending assay orders, helping you to keep track of all orders.
Fast startup with full installation service
QIAGEN analyzes your lab infrastructure and works closely with your LIMS provider to ensure seamless integration of QIAlink Software into your laboratory workflow. QIAlink Software is installed at your site by a highly qualified QIAGEN Field Service Specialist, who will configure the software and extensively test it. Your lab personnel will be fully trained on operation of the integrated system and configuration of new user-defined tests.
