LONDON, UK — March 2, 2021 — Based on its recent analysis of the North American laboratory information management systems (LIMS) market for molecular and genetic diagnostics, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Sunquest Information Systems with the 2021 North America Company of the Year Award. Sunquest’s comprehensive portfolio of products and services improves operational efficiency, enhances patient care, and lowers healthcare organizations’ costs across the spectrum. In particular, its Sunquest Mitogen™ LIMS drives a superior user experience with its built-in audit trails, patient-centric focus, support for multiple workflows and instruments, and adaptability to client needs.
Sunquest Mitogen supports multiple molecular workflows such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR), reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), next-generation sequencing (NGS), chromosomal microarray (CMA), and mass spectrometry. While other existing LIMS products are compatible with only about two workflows, Sunquest Mitogen supports more than 10 workflows. Configurable based on specific parameters and user needs, its latest version boasts greater flexibility and adaptability for enhanced operational efficiencies.
“Sunquest strategically leverages its sister company, Data Innovations®, vast collection of instrument drivers to make Sunquest Mitogen LIMS instrument-agnostic. As most competing LIMS solutions connect only with a limited set of instrument brands, its compatibility with numerous device brands makes it more convenient and attractive to users,” said Deepak Jayakumar, Industry Analyst, Frost & Sullivan. “Furthermore, it offers superior flexibility and scalability to meet the current and future market demand of laboratories.”
On the front end, Sunquest can tailor workflows to adhere to lab-specific protocols; and on the back end, it can configure management reporting and dashboard elements to suit user needs. As a leading molecular LIMS provider, Sunquest elevates laboratories out of the basement to the health system strategic level, to deliver real value to the entire healthcare ecosystem. For instance, in addition to its molecular LIMS, it offers products and services such as clinical and anatomic pathology laboratory information systems, comprehensive blood bank solutions, robust orders and results management support, enterprise interoperability, and physician and patient service center portals.
“Sunquest’s best-in-class industry practices and strong brand value helped it support its customers in an extremely challenging marketplace in 2020,” noted Norma Vela, Best Practices Research Team Leader, Frost & Sullivan. “Overall, by filling market gaps with innovative products and services and facilitating exceptional customer satisfaction, Sunquest has established itself as a name to reckon with in the North American LIMS market for molecular and genetic diagnostics.”
