Duration: 60 Minutes



Solution for Clinical Labs


In this webcast, we provide an overview of our complete end-to-end clinical stack. Initially, we walk through our powerful secondary analysis pipeline which allows you to call SNVs and CNVs. We then demonstrate how various types of CNVs are called and discuss metrics that express the confidence associated with each call.

From there, we show you our powerful tertiary analysis capabilities for gene panels, exome and whole genome data. We show how our users can move seamlessly from the variant interpretation stage to a clinical report. Lastly, we demonstrate how our genetic data warehouse, VSWarehouse, can be used in the clinic. We also demonstrate various use cases and show how a comprehensive assessment catalogue can be utilized to ensure consistent analysis across multiple labs.

We hope you enjoy our first presentation on Golden Helix's entire end-to-end solution for clinical labs!
