WinLAB is a laboratory system used for detecting mutations and polymorphisms, found through the genetic analysis of different genes in samples, taken from patients with a genetic predisposition within different disease categories.

About product

WIN-LAB is a laboratory system that fulfills three main purposes.

A patient database for registering patients, requisitions, ordered tests and trials including all the neceessary data, including registration numbers, dates, tasks and deadlines. A result-database for recording the results found to be important to the patient. Last but not least there is a response report generator which applies the already entered patient data and findings in the design of responses to complex genetic analyzes.

The program is highly utilized in the routines in the laboratory and has many features that facilitate daily work, such as a look-up tool used for telephone inquiries, label print for blood and DNA samples and bookkeeping functions such as invoicing, punch lists and production statistics.

Originally, the program was designed for the work flow in Sanger sequencing (few genes get results), but has now been further developed for use in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) (many genes, many results).

The program already includes a push button solution for the transfer of electronic data to the HNPCC register, and a solution is now being developed, enabling electronic requisitions for ordering genetic tests and answers to surveys to be accessed via the EPJ.

From within the search module, the statistical personnel can create and save many different dynamic search requests on the patient data. Relevant search criteria can be inserted and already performed inquiries can be retrieved as needed and performed again. Selected data can be exported to spreadsheets etc.

WinLAB is secured by WinLog, and users log into WinLAB through an access via a shortcut over the Internet, which establishes a secure, encrypted tunnel to the database regardless of which department you are sitting in.

WinLAB used at Aarhus University Hospital/Skejby, Aalborg Hospital and Rigshospitalet.
