VarSeq as a Clinical NGS Platform


The focus of VarSeq has always been to take the sometimes complex task of annotating and prioritizing variants and make it simple, intuitive and repeatable.

The power of VarSeq's project-based repeatable workflows has already been adopted by clinical labs such as NorthShore University HealthSystem and Prevention Genetics, and we continue to build features to support the compliance and data privacy requirements of a clinical environment.

This webcast highlights some of our new features for supporting gene panel screenings and rare variant diagnostics:

  • Harmonize filtering and ranking approaches to prioritize variants with our phenotype-based gene ranker
  • Track your lab's variant assessments in a centralized database that's easy to customize and never forgets previous assessments
  • Capture the analysis process used and snippets or screenshots of interest in the project note editor
