We have extended our Arraydb Laboratory Information System (LIMS) collaboration
with UCSF Cancer Center to allow separate laboratories' users to separately
track progress as micro-array slides are printed and used. The system
prevents users from seeing each others' data, except where specified,
while tracking clones, DNA, as it is prepared and plated, microtiter plates,
print-run specifications, slide-printing runs and slides printed, experiments
on and images of the slides, and image-analyses. Both slide printer and
image-analysis software write directly to the database. Users have the
option of downloading selected tabular reports to Excel spreadsheets.
Enhancements underway will also allow upload into the database from spreadsheets.
